I made this for my husband, Cam, who eats granola on a regular basis and he really liked it. Great recipe. Made for Spring PAC 2010
GReAt RECIPE. I've added honey, sometimes substitute cinannom applesauce, and more brown sugar. I havent used the Splenda sugar yet but its just as tasty using regular ole brown sugar. It lasts my family of 4 about 2 weeks at time. It is my go-to recipe.
