It's so simple to put this granola together, and it really helps with breakfast on busy mornings. Change up the fruits to fit your preferences or the seasons. —Arisa Cupp, Warren, Oregon

"I am glad to find a method that does not heat up my house during the summer. I used half light olive oil and coconut oil for a family member that cannot have canola oil. I added raisens. It is not overly sweet which is fine with me, as you can add dried fruits if you want more. I did not think it would crisp up, but it does when cooled."

"I didn't have all the ingredients, but the basic recipe is great. I've made it twice in one week.

Subbed sunflower kernels and flaked coconut for crushed almonds and omitted the pineapple and mango. Added 1/4 cup brown sugar. After it finished cooking, I let it dry on a cookie sheet overnight. Perfect."

"This recipe is amazing. I make it at least once a week. I recently tried cooking granola in the oven and my family was very unhappy - they only want this one. I love how easy it is to make and to customize to our tastes. This is the only granola recipe you will ever need."
