"This recipe was hard to rate. Although, it tastes fine and actually has a nice flavor it certainly is NOT granola! It reminded me more muesli or un-cooked flavored oatmeal. There was not enough sugar or fat to create a granola taste or texture. I gave it 4 stars, as I would consider the flavor combination for hot oatmeal to serve about four people. I followed the recipe exactly even using quick oats. My only change was subbing chopped walnuts as it was what I had."

"Very quick and easy! Based on the previous reviews, I subbed old fashioned oats for the quick oats.

For my personal taste, I also subbed Craisins for the golden raisins and added a few dashes of pumpkin pie spice at the end."

"i just made this recipe twice, once with quick oats and once with old fashioned. the kids ate most of the first batch plain and over yogurt. Glad I made 2 batches! I used dried apricots instead of raisins and threw in some craisins for good measure. Very easy and tasty"

"I use regular oats. It gives it a better texture. Mix with yogurt for a quick and filling breakfast."
