      Living in northern Michigan, up here it's all about the cherries. The modifications I made to this wonderful recipe do alter it, and to my way of thinking - improve on it. I cut down the sugar by half, added flaked coconut, dried cherries and cut back on the vanilla, adding a couple of drops of Almond extract. Almonds were also used instead of Walnuts. Finally since I never use spray on anything (it gums up my pans), I lined my cookiesheet with parchment paper and put the granola on that. When it's done and cooled, you simply lift the parchment and pour into a container.

      I used this on my first attempt at homemade granola and it was a hit! Since then, I'm going to guess that I've made this recipe around ten times. My boyfriend begs for this constantly. He doesn't want Whole Foods bulk bin granola anymore. I've added lots to this recipe, and my favorite things to add are other extracts, such as banana or almond, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, flax seeds, wheat germ, chopped-up dates (for the last five minutes), & any other dried fruits are great with it. I like it in yogurt, he likes it in milk. Thanks so much for creating the breakfast we've eaten so many times!

      I was looking for a low fat granola recipe and this is it! I followed the recipe but used 1 cup regular splenda and 1/2 cup brown sugar. The walnuts add the perfect touch. Next time I will add some maple flavoring.
