Serve this delicious mix for breakfast with milk, or sprinkle it over yogurt. You can add chopped walnuts or pecans, but it will increase the calorie count. —Kelly Kirby, Westville, Nova Scotia

"Very good, a tad too sweet and also do not add fruit with ingredients to bake. The fruit gets too hard, add after you take out of oven. Also, I used skim milk, tasty and crunchy."

"Excellent. I just used the brown sugar and water because I didn't want to go to the store. Can only imagine how much better it will be with the fruits. I will also in the future put it it super low in my oven and let it dehydrate for several hours. I am too ADD to watch this and it can burn kind of quick."

"I am always trying new healthy granola recipes and I always find myself coming back to this one. I have now marked it as my favorite recipe. I add chopped almonds and sunflower seeds to mine to add more protein. It's very good."
