This was different. I actually made it for a friend but decided not to give it to her because of the way it turned out. Even though I followed the recipe it seemed undercooked to me. After I finished putting it all together and let it cool it wasn't crunchy or anything. I may try it again but if I did, I would cook it longer. Thank you.

This is a good substitute for the high granola that you buy. It is not very sweet but maybe sweeten applesauce or a little brown sugar would sweeten if you would like it sweeter. It is extremely easy to make and very cost effective.

I make this granola all the time now and eat it for my breakfast or on plain granola and ice cream. I use pumpkin seeds, shredded coconut, almonds, dried cranberries, raisons and flax seeds. It is so low fat and very good for you. Not too sweet.
