    PaulaG's Note:

    This recipe has been in the making for several months. I have tried a number of combinations and this works best. The sugar and fat have been reduced. I can only get two pans in my oven at a time so the cooking time reflects cooking two at a time.

      AMAZING! This is the best granola reipe I have ever made, and I have made plenty. I like that this is a loose granola as I am not a fan of clumpy versions. It is so easy to make substitutions on the recipe. I am making it this Christmas to give a gifts instead of cookies. My parents, in laws and best friends are now addicted to it and ask for it constantly. Thanks for the great recipe! PS stir often when making this. I stir every 8 minutes.

      I've made this recipe 5 or 6 times and still absolutely love it. I feel like I have a good, solid start to the day with just a half cup of this. Lots of good energy. I do leave out the brown sugar as I am trying to reduce sugar in my diet, and the molasses adds tons of flavor. I usually cook it longer than stated to get the right crunch. Thank you!

      First time ever making granola. I always substitute applesauce for oil when baking to make things healthier and I did that here with perfect results! Stirred every 8 mins as a prior reviewer suggested. Thanks!
