A great make-ahead recipe! Be sure to remove from the cookie sheets within 20 minutes after baking to prevent sticking. —Lori Stevens, Riverton, Utah

"This is my family's favorite granola recipe. I cut the vanilla extract in half and add a teaspoon of almond extract."

"Great starter recipe! I used brown sugar with stevia to reduce the calories, pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon and added walnuts while leaving out the coconut ( I didn't have any!) DO use the cooler temps 275-320 as it will burn quickly . I also stirred it while it was cooling to reduce any sticking. Nice and crunchy!"

"Not sure if the honey (Manuka) I used was the culprit however, first round with oven at 350F granola was burnt in 15 minutes (it was stirred at 1st 10 minute mark). Second attempt adjusted oven temp to 320F and it came out perfect. Thanks for sharing a great recipe! Will use again."

"The only thing I changed was I added dried cranberries. I wouldn't do that again as they got really hard after baking it. Other than that, it was delish!"

"This is fantastic! Wonderfully delicious and so easy to make. (My 2 year old helped and enjoyed tasting each ingredient as it was stirred in.) The only thing I changed was adding craisins for color and a little fruit. I will be making this regularly rather than buying expensive granola at the store!"
