    This is a 10-star recipe in my book. It shot right to the top of my "favorite granola" list. Excellent! I used unsweetened coconut and mini chocolate chips so the resulting granola wasn't overly sweet but rather just right. I used walnuts, which I loved, but I bet if you use the almonds it would be like Almond Joy Granola. YUM! The only 'problem' I had was it makes so much it was hard to stir to get it all coated, even though I was using my largest bread bowl. Next time I'll probably mix it in a roasting pan to make that step a little easier. Other than that, the recipe worked beautifully and the resulting granola was fantastic! Thanks so much for sharing!

    I made this today and am enjoying it as I type. I am making my way through several granola recipes to find the one I love the most. This is number two and while very good, I am still looking for something different. Thanks!

    Oh Wow! This is really good stuff. It has just come out of the oven, and I can't even wait to let it cool before sampling it. YUMMY!! I can't wait until it cools and i can add crasins and chocolate chips. Although, it is great without them!!

    Good! I didn't do chocolate chips - just golden raisins - because all I had was full-sized and that seemed a little intimidating. I'm sure it would be delicious as Marg suggested with almond and mini chocolate chips. I used walnuts and added a little bit of cardamom just to mix it up. This is not a clumpy granola, but the flavor is very good and I really like the coconut flavor and texture. I found the cooking-time to be dead-on. I made a half recipe in a glass 9x13 dish and it worked great. I really liked that this was honey and sugar sweetened rather than just one or the other as many recipes are. Thanks!
