MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 23, 2010

I made this & added dried cranberries, it got nice & toasty/crunchy. We thought it could use a little more sweetener, but will make it again, probably adding a few more dried fruits & nuts.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 27, 2010

This granola tastes nutty and delicious--I simply don't eat much cereal which is why I probably won't make it again. I do agree with the reviewer who felt the oven temperature should be lower. I baked mine at 325 degrees for 20 minutes and it turned out fine. If you are looking for a granola that can be eaten easily with your hands, this one probably isn't for you. This one is more of a mix-in for yogurt or eaten as a cereal with milk.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 19, 2010

It was to much cinnamon for my taste, and I even like cinnamon. 350 is to hot and started to burn my granola and I had to put tin foil over it to prevent further burning and cooked it for 10 more mins. I would suggest 300 and a longer cooking time. It came out bland and I even drizzled honey over it. With a lot of changes this could have been a good recipe but you shouldn't have to do so much editing to get a decent result. I found a deferent recipe I will be trying next time.
