Reviews for Snackin' Granola
"I've not yet made this recipe, but it makes me yearn for fall days, especially as the kids start back to school! I think I would change up the plums, apricots and raisins for dried cherries, which would give it a nice color. Dried cranberries or blueberries would work well, too! You could add dried pepitas and sunflower seeds in place of the sesame seeds. I would use dark chocolate chips to contrast the dried cherries. This is a great recipe!"
