    This was delicious! I used dried cherries and added a bit of nutmeg and a pinch of salt! Perfect for my morning yogurt! Made for PAC Fall 2012

    So delicious! I made just as directed, using raisins and lots of cinnamon. I've been munching this plain all afternoon; looking forward to enjoying with yogurt for breakfast in the morning. Thanks for sharing a great recipe! Made for Spring Pick-A-Chef 2013

    Nothing like homemade granola, especially as fall sets in. Made this the other day and have been enjoying it the last few mornings with yogurt - quite delicious and not too sweet as someone else mentioned too. Thanks Starry!

    This granola is wonderful, one of the best Ive ever made. It is crunchy with big chunks and tastes so yummy! I loved the combination of coconut, almonds, honey, oats and raisins. Mmm! I made half the recipe reducing the honey to 1 tbs and the oil to 1 tbs as well. I made up for the lack of liquid by adding 2 tbs of applesauce. Also, since I like my coconut toasty, I added it from the start. This worked out so well, your times and temp are spot on and the granola came out perfect. Thank you so much for sharing this definite keeper with us, starry!<br/>Made and reviewed for your being VIP during Veggie Swap #51 October 2012.
    Yummy and luckily this mix was ~Tasty Dish~ approved! I used a variety of dried fruit: cranberries, currants, blackberries, blueberries. The coconut was reduced by half (in case there were any complaints of "too much coconut" from ~TD~), and I used finely grated coconut so it would "melt" into the mixture. Threw in a few pepitas as well. Not too sweet and will make again soon! Easy! Reviewed for the ongoing Veg Tag/October and for the VIP of the month!
