Made this with tangerine marmalade, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and oats. Baked 25 minutes. Great snack and flavour, will make again and again for snacks, or on yogurt.
This is great granola! I used sugar free apricot preserves, Splenda & more cinnamon. Sorry I'm not a nut fan so I used raisins for the almonds & just skipped the seeds-also used less coconut. It browned nicely in the oven & while I didn't taste the preserves totally, there was a sweetness to the granola that made it taste very yummy! Thank u for sharing!
So radical that I feel like a rebel!!!! I made this this morning as I had the kitchen to myself, and I have just scoffed a handful now - DIVINE! Based on Sharon's ideas, I made mine with home-made apple and apricot jelly, and also added a few hazelnuts too, they go so well with apples! I popped in a few sultanas, as I like a fruit and nut mixture - but other than that - I did exactly as stated in the recipe. I shall be attacking this snack this afternoon no doubt - absolutley delicious and well worth getting up early for! Made for PAC Autumn 2007 - Well Done Dinglebop! FT:-)
