This is super easy to make and goes great with yogurt, ice cream, or just by itself! It's much sweeter than the classic honey granola.

I hate to give this a 4 star, but it just didnt work well for me. I used a stainless steel skillet on my flattop stove which I think greatly contributed to my mistake. I would NOT do this on high on a flattop stove. I think I will try the oven next time. I used 1/4 cup butter and added 1 cup rice krispies. I sauteed the oatmeal/brown sugar/cinnamon mix for 4 mintues on high but it was starting to burn already. I removed it from the heat to add the butter and it continued to burn, even after I added the butter and caramel sauce. It looks burnt,and tasted burnt, but I will continue to use it in my granola bar recipe because I dont want to waste it. I think its a good idea for making granola, but I will put it in the oven next time on wax paper. Let you know how it works out.

I halved it, but changed it a little bit. I used 2 tablespoons of butter and 1 tablespoon of canola oil to lighten it up. It seems like the recipe calls for too much butter. Also, I added 1/2 teaspoonful of vanilla extract to the butter/caramel mixture. And right after the oats and butter are mixed but before it cools, I added a handful of caramels cut in halves. It got all melty with the granola but still held some form- worked very well. I think this recipe was good, but needed something else to add crunch, either nuts or Rice Krispies.

Very yummy snack. It was all gone from us munching on it before I could use it on yogurt or ice cream! The only things I did differently were to add about 1/4 cup each of walnuts and pecans, and I used half of the recommended butter. de-lish!
