  • “I went back and forth between 4 and 5 stars on this…can I choose 4-1/2? :o) I made it exactly as written and it was easy and tasty, a hit with the kids. It had a strong, almost-overpowering honey taste, though (at least to my palate…afraid personal preference kicks in here!) I remade it with only 1/2 c honey and added cinnamon and salt and it was great; the oat flavor really shone through. It was also good both ways with dried fruit added in after it cooled. I will definitely be making this again.Thanks!”

  • “This is a very simple, easy recipe for granola.I tweaked it slightly though.It’s a bit too sweet and strong with so much honey.I also didn’t have the wheat germ or sunflower seeds (and don’t like either) so I added an extra cup of oats, cut back on the honey by about a 1/3 cup, and added cinnamon and nutmeg.It was delicious.This is a great starter recipe and you can just add the things you like to taste!Once you make it once, you no longer need a recipe.Just have fun wtih it!”

  • “A good basic granola that is easy to dress up with fresh or dried fruit. It is a bit sweet, even the kids thought so, so next time I’ll cut back on the honey some. I used butter instead of oil and it worked well. My favorite thing about this granola is the walnuts. They add a different flavor that I really enjoy. Thanks for sharing Mirj!”

  • “When i foudn this recipe i was actually looking for a different one but found this recipe which was exactly the same as the one i was looking for. Its a great recipe and i make it once a week to keep us going with cereal as me and the kids love this stuff. I do however add a few extra bits. We change it every week some weeks we add banana chips, or bran, or raisins, or coconut.Great recipe Thanks”
