We really liked this granola. It didn't get crispy like store bought granola, but it was very good. Don't know if I cooked it longer if it would get crispier or not. Don't know that it matters either. I added some sunflower seeds. Other dried fruit or nuts, or even coconut would also make good additions. Thanks for sharing!

This is delicious--although in the future lower the baking temperature to avoid burning, and I will make this again! It does crisp up after it cools for a bit in the oven...it's quite addictive! Thanks for sharing!

This recipe interested me with the addition of peanut butter! I sprayed a jelly roll pan with baking spray before adding the granola to bake. Reading the reviews about burning, I lowered the temperature of my oven to 300 degrees and allowed my granola to bake 20 minutes, stirring after 10, because of the edges browning too quickly. Even at 300 degrees, be sure to watch this closely. Even though this does have a wonderful flavor as written, next time to my own taste, I will add 1/2 cup of light brown sugar to the mix and perhaps 1/2 cup slivered almonds. Thanks for this wonderful recipe, Terri Newell!

I loved the flavour of this granola but I think it needed more oil, as it did not get the right crispiness. I baked mine at 300 degrees for 40 minutes.

Great snack and easy to make. I love that it isn't loaded with sugar. I think next time I'll add some roasted sunflower seeds and maybe some dried fruit or coconut. Thanks for posting the recipe.

Delicious, excellent taste for a super easy recipe. For more tasty peanut taste we also substitute crunchy or extra crunchy peanut butter.

This doesn't have nearly as much sugar as some granola recipes, but I still bake at a lower temp -- 300 to 325, stirring every 10 minutes or so until done. I sometimes use unsalted natural peanut butter. In that case, a little extra salt definitely does not hurt.

This is my family's go-to granola! It doesn't call for any expensive ingredients, and they are all basics that most people already have in the pantry! When we have little extras (raisins, coconut, nuts, etc) we add them, but it's great without any additions! Easy to make and easy to eat!
