    The idea sounded great but this just didnt win in our family of toddlers - including me and my husband. It needs something, not sure what.

    I've made alot of granola recipes the past years and this is a first for me using molasses. It's quite a bit wetter than most and the liquid part seemed to be about twice what I've used in the past. I loved that it coated everything really well and the flavor of the molasses comes thru nicely. I omitted the coconut and also for the nuts I used slivered almonds. I upped the amounts of oats by about 1/2 cup and also used some wheat bran and wheat germ as stated by previous reviewers. I used a cup of regular raisins too. This took more than an hour of baking b/f I felt comfortable removing. I was afraid it was going to stay too wet by just baking 20 minutes. The final product did clump a bit which was the desired effect I was looking for. A great versatile recipe Sharon. Made for HolidayTag~

    What a great granola. I made this as a gift for my dad (although I had some too! :) ), and discovered it definitely is gift worthy. My dad likes his granola just barely sweet so I added the 3 cups of oats then about 1 cup of wheat germ, bran, spelt flakes, wheat flakes, and various other flakes. I also omitted the coconut for his prefernce. Instead of vegetable oil I used 1 1/2 tbsp peanut oil which gave a greater peanut flavour. I loved the idea of whole peanuts in a granola!! I love peanuts. My granola didn't clump up all that much but that was probably because of more flakes therefore less molasses mixture to go around. It still made one delicious crunchy granola. Thanks for a keeper!!
