This recipe is very tasty although, the final result is closer to granola than trail mix. I did make several changes seen what I had on hand: I used 3 cups plain Cheerios, 1 cup sunflower seeds, 1 cup unsweetened coconut, 1 cup raisins, 1 cup sesame seeds, 1 cup wheat bran, 1 cup cranberry/almond cereal (similar to Special K) and 1/4 cup almonds. I used Recipe #73863 for the condensed milk and I added 1 generous teaspoon of ground cardamom. The 45-50 minutes baking time was much too long... After 10 minutes it was already starting to brown, after 20 minutes, I decided to lower the oven temperature to 250F, and I let it cook another 10 minutes, after which removed the pan from the oven. So, I had 30 minutes total baking time. But the result is delicious, crunchy, and healthy - that's what counts right? Thanks TiaGem
