"I love this granola! It's delicious. I didn't have the spelt flour so I used ww pastry. Only had sugar free pancake syrup so I used that for the maple syrup. Turned out perfect, thanks! ..." See more"
"I totally appreciate a recipe that can cut fat yet doesn't sacrifice much, if anything. This recipe fits that bill. There is a subtle difference between this and one that uses more oil and boils a syr..." See moreup first, but it's not a 'step down' kind of difference. This one won't 'chunk up' because of that and seems a little drier, but has so much flavor! I was skeptical that the applesauce would produce a crisp granola, but it worked! Very crisp. Must be the flour that helps it along. I used 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 ground flax to make up for the spelt flour I didn't have. I also left out the maple syrup I didn't have and this was plenty sweet. I added in almonds for the pecans, and dried blueberries for the apricots(topped with a few fresh for the photo). Fyi, this makes about 4 cups. Thank you so much for the recipe. It will be made often in this kitchen."

I als..." See moreo used molassas instead of some of the maple syrup. It was tasty, but needed something else. I added a little salt and will use less flour next time, as well as add some vanilla. Thanks for a good base recipe!"
