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!!! "

Tried and True!

I've tried tons of different granola recipes over the years, but always come back to this one! Everyone who tries it raves about it. I occasionally tweak it a bit using half honey, half regular syrup, and a bit of molasses when I don't have maple syrup, and it's still awesome. Also usually add a few cashews as well. It's become our family specialty!

Perfect sweetness when brown sugar is omitted.

Tried this for the first time today. I used coconut oil instead of canola, and 1 cup dried cranberries. Added a little hemp and chia seed, and omitted the brown sugar. Its just the right amount sweet (I don't like my granola grocery store sweet - if I did, I'd buy it there!), and no flavor is too overpowering. Yum.

THE BEST GRANOLA I'VE EVER HAD. Better than the local yummy bakery which is a real complement.

Great in yogurt or on top of high quality vanilla ice cream with a little bit of warmed Smucker's butterscotch topping. (Although with this is certainly not low fat food, but soooo yummy.) Would rate this 10 out ouf 5 (!)

Healthy! Much lower cost than bakery granola. Super GREAT smell in the house while cooking.

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.
