"This is a great recipe for homemade granola. I make it weekly! Any dried fruit can be substituted for the raisins. I use dried cranberries in mine and it's fantastic!"

Just made this recipe, actually made a variation. I only used 1 cup of oats,(I cut it down because I didn't want to waste the oats if I screwed it up!) I added steal cut oats, Chai seed and Hemp seed as well as the wheat germ. I didn't have coconut, but substituted the oil for coconut oil. I didn't use brown sugar, I used maybe a 1/3 cup (all that I had) of coconut sugar and about a 1/4 cup or so of organic maple syrup and some stevia. Also cut down the spices. I added dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds,and almonds. It came out great. I've never made granola before and used this as a guide. I'm surprised more people don't make their own, so easy and good. You can see I changed a lot from a very good recipe and worked with what I had.

Fantastic! I used cranberries & pecans instead of raisins and almonds. Also added in 1/2 cup of sunflower seeds and 1/2 cup cashew pieces. I only had to bake for 45 minutes. Will definitely make this again.

Exactly what I was looking for, a bare bones, basic granola with only a few inexpensive ingredients. The possibilities to customize this are endless.
