I was very pleased with this recipe. Very easy to prepare and store. A good way to start the morning. Conrad.
The idea sounded great but this just didnt win in our family of toddlers - including me and my husband. It needs something, not sure what.
I've made alot of granola recipes the past years and this is a first for me using molasses. It's quite a bit wetter than most and the liquid part seemed to be about twice what I've used in the past. I loved that it coated everything really well and the flavor of the molasses comes thru nicely. I omitted the coconut and also for the nuts I used slivered almonds. I upped the amounts of oats by about 1/2 cup and also used some wheat bran and wheat germ as stated by previous reviewers. I used a cup of regular raisins too. This took more than an hour of baking b/f I felt comfortable removing. I was afraid it was going to stay too wet by just baking 20 minutes. The final product did clump a bit which was the desired effect I was looking for. A great versatile recipe Sharon. Made for HolidayTag~
