One of the best healthy granolas I have ever made. I will use this recipe when I make granola. It is very tasty and healthy with all the great healthy ingredients such as seeds and nuts. I, like fellow reviewers, did not include the brown sugar. I found the recipe was sweet enough with the recommended maple syrup in the recipe and did not need the brown sugar. I did not have coconut chips and only had unsweetened shredded coconut. I added the unsweetened shredded coconut at the very end of the cooking time and ensured it did not burn. Although the recipe indicates a 1/2 cup serving I try to only enjoy it one tablespoon at a time in my yogurt or add it to my cereal. This is definitely a keeper.

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 easy, so delicious! I add whatever nut/seed combination found in the pantry/freezer and it's always great!
Made this for the first time. I halved the maple syrup and the brown sugar since I prefer granola less sweet. For the nuts, I only used almonds and did not put any of the coconut in it. I did add some hemp hearts.
Will make this again and add something different. I love the versatility of this recipe!
I have tried this recipe several times and it's just great. Since my husband is not fond of coconut chips i replace it with flaxseed. You can also use orange juice in place of water for enhanced flavour.
I add an egg white both for binding and protein. I delete all the fruit and use only syrup. I add academics, pecans and sunflowers to equal two cups. Also I flavor with cinnamon and almond extract. It is the only granola I make!!!!
