Get-Up-and-Go Granola Recipe

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

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 20, 2014

"Excellent recipe. I did not have flaxseed or apple pie spice so used pumpkin pie spice. I made half a recipe for just the two of us. Will definitely make this again. I highly recommend this recipe as a Field Editor for Taste of Home."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 22, 2014

"This is delicious! I've never made a granola before and it's so easy. I halved the recipe except for the craisins and raisins and used extra honey because I'm not a fan of maple syrup. Also, instead of apple pie spice I used pumpkin pie spice."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 21, 2014

"My son is allergic to peanuts and we stay away from all nuts to be safe. Can you make a good granola without the addition of nuts? Could you just add more oatmeal in its place? This sounds like such a good on-the-go breakfast!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 20, 2014

"You could use Karo Syrup or just use more honey. Anything that is sticky, sweet, and delicious would do. Of course, pure maple syrup is the best in my opinion."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 19, 2014

"I don't have maple syrup. Can something else be used instead?"
