One of my absolute favorite granola recipes! Also great without raisins or with regular dark raisins. I use mine with yogurt and fresh fruit for a parfait as a snack or for breakfast.

This is absolutely delicious and a firm family favourite. It's one we'll be making many more times, as we love the taste of it. It's a keeper, for sure.

This had way too much salt in it...I would recommend 1/2 tsp. I would give it a 3 star
