First of all I have to say of all the granola recipes I've made here on Zaar..using cocoa powder is a first. I was also intriqued by the use of molasses and since I love molasses anything, thought this was right up my ally. I was pleasantly surprised with the flavors and taste that comes thru not so much from the molasses but especially from the cocoa. Also, I should mention, I doubled this recipe as I like to keep it on hand in my freezer for popping out and using in my yogurt/fruit I have for lunch most days. I did omit the sunflower seeds and instead used a combination of craisins and raisins. I didn't add these until I was done with the baking part because I've learned that they will turn into hard little morsels if you include them in the baking time. I increased my baking time to 40 minutes to accomodate the double batch. Thanks for a yummy recipe Jules.!~
