My family loves to have this soul-warming granola before hiking, biking or even when camping. It smells delicious while baking up and you can easily make in large batches for special occasions or to send in gift packages to family and friends. —Sabrina Olson, Otsego, Minnesota

I made this for our son who loves granola and mixed it with yogurt. He loved it! It was actually better than another recipe that I had made before and was much easier.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 8, 2013

I was looking for an easy granola recipe that would be great to put on top of yogurt and this fit the bill! It makes A LOT! But between my husband and I munching on it, it's disappearing fast. One thing I want to point out, is that while it may seem like a lot of these ingredients can get pricey...the recipe only uses a bit of each, so you can actually make the recipe several times, and then it is frugal. Wonderful! You gotta try it!
