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!!!

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.

So good! I too omitted the brown sugar and I didn't notice a lack of sweetness. I added some chopped dried apricots and I was very impressed!
I have been using this recipe since it was published. I even bought a special container for storing it. I make my own plain yogurt, and put the granola in it. I have shared this recipe with many friends. My husband and son also enjoy it - when I share.
This is a great recipe. It doesn't need the brown sugar, I agree. I add flax seeds or flax meal and chia seeds to it for extra Omega 3. I also add raw pumkin seeds - they are a great addition! Adding cinnamon makes a good variation. This is a great gift when packed in mason jars!
I made this recipe as a gift for friend's last year and wound up loving it so much that I now make it every other week to keep as a healthy snack. I forgot the brown sugar one time and didn't notice, so now I cut it out entirely - you get enough sweet from the syrup.
