Yummy! Love it! I did make a few changes, however ... I used unsweetened applesauce instead of oil; I used All-Bran instead of the wheat germ and flax seed meal; and I used Splenda Brown Sugar mixture instead of regular brown sugar ... oh, and I didn't have any honey, so I used sugar-free maple syrup. It is really great, and this way it is lower-fat/lower calories, but I will probably only use about 1/3 of the recommended salt next time. And, unlike many of the granola recipes out there, it DOES make the "clumps" that make it yummy to eat just out of the bag OR w/ milk/soy milk. Enjoy!



Very easy. I didn't use sunflower seeds, i just put more nuts. Just keep an eye on it. My first batch was toasted before the hour was up. It's also very versatile: I made one once batch with walnuts, and after baking stirred in pieces of dried apples and raisins, and anther batch with almonds and pecans and almond extract instead of vanilla, then stirred in dried cranberries after baking. In the future, i plan on just making a double batch and keeping toasted nuts and dried fruits on hand to make up a different flavor every morning!

Wonderful, versatile recipe! I omitted the brown sugar and used 1/3 cup real maple syrup instead of honey; decreased the oil to 1/4 cup; and I used slivered instead of sliced almonds for more texture. Oh, I might have tossed some oat bran in there too. Didn't miss the sugar at all, and I like things sweet. Mine only took maybe 40-45 minutes to bake. When cool, I added some dried blueberries - Delicious, chunky, perfectly flavored granola!!
