We love the maple-nut flavor combination of this heart-healthy granola, but feel free to substitute your favorite nuts or dried fruit for your own custom blend.

"A very good granola. I reduced the amount of sweeteners by one half and it was still satisfactory. I would assume that you could leave the sweetenerers out and use the sweetener of your choice when you eat. Bill!!! "

I should have listened to the other comments and 1/2 the sugar. Too sweet. Second time I made it I used only the maple syrup and no brown sugar. I also added cinnamon and a couple tablespoons of natural peanut butter (using lots of the oil on top) and less canola. Really good- will make this my "house" granola recipe from now on. All my friends want some too!!


This granola is so delicious. I couldn’t find coconut flakes, so I omitted them, since I didn’t want to use the sweetened coconut you find in the baking isle of the supermarket. However, I did add ½ cup of banana chips when I added the raisins and dried cranberries. I will definitely make this again, and following other user comments, I think I will omit the brown sugar and use light maple syrup. This is a keeper.

Okay at best

I just didn't really enjoy the taste of this granola that much. I also also burned the first batch; the second time I made it I reduced the baking time by 20 minutes and it was better. It's just okay in my opinion. I used a combination of craisins and dried (tart) cherries instead of raisins as I didn't have any raisins.

Don't buy granola, make this!

I filled jars to give as holiday gifts for my neighbors. Two neighbors have already knocked on my door asking for the recipe. Very tasty and so simple to make!


This was so fast and so yummy to make. I omitted the brown sugar and raisins and doubled up on the cranberries. This made my home smell so good! Can't wait to put it in my yogurt tomorrow!!

Easy to make
