My family likes this granola in so many ways. We sprinkle it over yogurt and ice cream, we eat it with milk like cereal, and we love to just eat it right from the container! —Susan Lajeunesse, Colchester, Vermont

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 20, 2009
I made this over the weekend. It was fantastic. Everyone loved it. I had never made anything like this before and I was a little nervous. I should have known I could trust TOH! I may never buy boxed cereal again.

My family enjoy this recipe. We sprinkle it in our yogurt and as our morning cereal. I just grab a handful and eat it as an snack.
