    QOU4LIFE's Note:

    This recipe will probably not rate as "low fat" because of all the nuts, but they're a healthy source of fat. In an effort to reduce the unhealthy fat, there is a minimal amount of butter in the entire recipe. It makes for a dry granola which is especially good for topping yogurt or as the topping for a fruit "cobbler". Feel free to swap out different fruits and nuts to suit your tastes. Enjoy!

      This is so easy to make and much cheaper than the $7.00 bags at the natural food store. I used buckwheat honey, which has a strong flavor, and instead of raisins, I subbed chopped dates. I also threw in a handful of candied ginger bits. Will be making this often and will try other spice and fruit-nut combos. Made for Spring 2013 paC.

      I'm not a fan of granola because usually it contains way too much sugar, but this one is great! I used virgin coconut oil inistead of butter and cashews instead of the peanuts. Thanks for posting a keeper!
