"Just as good if not better than store bought but I feel better about eating this. It was easy to make and 30min was just enough time. I use mine on top of yogurt or add other goodies like choc. chips to make trail mix for the kids."

"My 2 year old helped make this and it was a great activity for her! But...my granola almost burned after cooking only 18 minutes. I rescued it and it turned out well. I made some with chocolate chips, some with dates and banana chips and left some plain. We will do this again for sure."
