Quite delicious!This would bring a little ray of sunshine into the gloomiest of days.I used apricots,sultanas and raisins in mine.The orange flavour really lifts it and brings it to life. A very tasy and easy way to start the day.I'm keeping this one Mandy,thank you! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.

Really good granola- and the hint of orangey aroma is divine! I used cranberries which are very nice, plus golden raisins, apricots, & currants. I halved the honey, and should perhaps have reduced the bitter orange peel a bit, but it makes no difference, I'll highly enjoy this!

Started off with the wrong oats... bought quick instead of regular... but liked how it turned out! ;) Added some apricots as dried fruits. Baked for about 20 minutes at 300F. Simple and tasty granola! Thanks Mandy! Made for tag. :)
