Works fine on a single baker's half sheet, no need for two vessels! Alton uses only one in the video... not that hard to stir around. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Our whole family loves this recipe.  We make it all the time.  I substitute coconut palm sugar for the brown sugar and coconut oil for the vegetable oil.  Fantastic! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Pretty good, although, in my opinion, too sweet.  Still in search of the elusive granola recipe that has chunks and not too sweet. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Taste sugars as you're adding rather than dumping them all in at once; way sweet with syrup to me:) Otherwise, first granola recipe I've liked and soooo much better than premade alternatives you buy! Not soggy, nice texture-look forward to eating it!<br /><br /> item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great and versatile recipe!  I had never made granola before and was lucky to find this recipe for my first attempt!  It is quite conducive to modification based on preferences and available ingredients.  I have made several batches by now.   First I made it exactly as written (fantastic) and have since modified it some to include more oats (to make it healthier), replaced the raisins with dried cherries, and added some dark chocolate chips.  We like to keep it on hand for a breakfast cereal or to sprinkle on yogurt. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have never made granola before (except the batch I burned) and I have to say this ROCKS!!! I can't stop eating it!! Instead of raisins, I used dried cranberries and dried cherries. YUM!!! Will keep it in my kitchen ALWAYS!!!Loved it item not reviewed by moderator and published
The MOST delicious granola thing I have ever made! So easy!  item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent recipe! I made it a bit healthier by doing the following: I altered a bit by using unsweetened coconut flakes and shredded in the food processor.  Reduced cashews to 3/4 c and chop in processor as well.  I reduced the brown sugar to 2 tbsp and used kosher salt.  Really gave it a nice salty sweet balance. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this recipe was great!  I was looking for something where I could control the sugar content.  I found unsweetened coconut and used coconut oil in place of the vegetable oil.  Using the brown sugar and maple syrup was still a little sweet for me, so next time I will step back on both of those, or just use one.  It is delicious as is, but I am trying to wean my palate from the all sweet all the time! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this recipe. I use cocoa dusted almonds, chopped pecans and coconut in mine. Nothing burns if you stir every 15 minutes. I use my convection oven at 250 degrees for one hour. I also add cinnamon---really delicious. Can't stop eating it...that's the only problem:) item not reviewed by moderator and published
Mine burned. It is VERY temperature sensitive, and it should have been placed on a higher rack. Next time I'll use 225 degrees and move the rack up a bit...:-( item not reviewed by moderator and published
hands down, the best granola recipe I've tried and I now make it every other week. It's always perfect just as it is but can easily accommodate adjustments for personal taste. item not reviewed by moderator and published
WOW! This is awesome. I followed the recipe exactly except my coconut was not sweetened. I used "Go Chunky!" organic dried coconut from Whole Foods. I also made my own brown sugar which I think always makes it taste yummier. I will make this regularly. Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was really easy to make and super tasty. I made it as the instruction read; at first I was worried because of the time and effort it supposed to take. at the end it was wort it, the outcome was wonderful. I gave to my coworkers as a Christmas present. I think, maybe next time, I'm going to try some of the suggestions others gave. Great recipe. at do you think? item not reviewed by moderator and published
Using coconut milk in place of coconut flakes. Add to liquid ingredients instead of dry. Result s like eating candy. Moist. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is yummy! I omitted the 2 Tablespoons of brown sugar &amp; added unsweetened coconut flakes instead of the sweetened shredded coconut because it was too sweet. My daughter puts the granola in her almond milk in the morning and my sons &amp; I add it to yogurt. We also eat it just plain. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good and super easy to make. It makes your house smell dang good as well. I wasn't into putting cashews in mine, as it tended to be a bit too nutty for me. I recommend being super careful when turning the granola over with a spatula, as it can easily go all over your kitchen floor and make a massive mess. I make this often. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow! Easy and delicious! I made this with my three-year-old daughter. She found the bits that flew out of the bowl while she stirred to be quite tasty! Thanks, Alton! item not reviewed by moderator and published
There is no question that the brown sugar is the super star in this recipe. I have been making variations of the Bitman, "How to Cook Everything" recipe for years and have never gotten anything nearly this tasty. The slow and low heat seams to also protect the nuts from burning, which occasionally happened a little bit with the Bitman recipe at 350 for 30 min. It smells like cookies in my house and the stolen bites I've taken from the not even ready yet granola are amazing. Well. I guess that's what you get when you use sugar too, instead of only honey or maple syrup or a combination of both. Anyone tried any other sweeteners in their granola? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I adore this granola and have been making this recipe for several years. When I'm feeling saucy I make some modifications - adding 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp cinnamon, and sometimes a dash of nutmeg. Depending on what I have in my pantry I substitute the cashews for chopped walnuts (really good!), or add 3 tbsp of sesame seeds. I keep mine in a sealed tupperware container and, if I don't finish it by then, it will last a month. item not reviewed by moderator and published

The BEST Granola Ever!!!!! For someone who does not like honey, it is rare to find a granola recipe that is tasty. I only made a couple of changes: I used all almonds since I did not have any other nuts on hand, used crasins instead of raisins and when it was completely cool, I added about 1 cup of chocolate chips. I knew the crowd I was making it for would love that addition and I was right. They ALL requested the recipe. It's a new favorite! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Best damn granola...ever. I've tried a ton and this was delicious. Used almonds and pecans and 1/2 cup of brown sugar was plenty. Didn't bother with the two pans - just put it on one and stirred it every 15 minutes as directed. Makes a lot so I just store it in a mason jar and shared with friends. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious and very easy to make. I will definitely make this again soon! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent. I wanted to try a new banana muffin recipe by Ina Garten that had granola in it &amp; could not find the store bought box. After much research I came across Alton's and decided to try it. Since it yields so much I divided the recipe into thirds. I had no clue it can be this easy and so tasty! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Really delicious granola! Made this yesterday for my boyfriend and we both loved it. Didn't have any cashews, but still, it was delicious. Added around 2 tsp of cinammon, used unsweetened cocconut and reduced the maple syrup and sugar to 1/3c each. Will definitely be making again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this a few times -- it's tasty, but I make a few changes. I'm basically doubling the quantity, but changing a few ingredients along the way. I add in all bran and grape nuts (about 1.5 to 2 cups each), increase the oats to 4 or 4.5C, increase the coconut to 1.25 to 1.5 cups add 1/4 cup molasses, 2 tbsp of honey, a touch of cinnamon, and an additional few tbsp of oil. This stuff is killer!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made this granola several times and it is my favorite! My husband asks for it for his birthday! I leave out the coconut and cashews but double the almonds. I have some in the oven right now! item not reviewed by moderator and published
With the following modifications 5 stars... too sweet for our family as written - we omitted brown sugar and used unsweetened coconut. Used the 1/4 c. maple syrup. Delicious and still plenty sweet. As written I'd say more of a dessert than a breakfast. item not reviewed by moderator and published
IT IS SOOO GOOOODDD!!!!! didn't have sweet shredded coconut, I only had unsweetened finely shredded coconut and I added it. Just added a bit more sugar and honey. It tastes GREAT!!! even kids love it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
We love this Granola. I have tweeked the recipe a little as we try to limit our sugar. Used Truvia instead of brown sugar, used unsweetened coconut &amp; sugar free maple pancake syrup. It is still an awesome snack or cereal. Much better than anything pre-packaged. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Best dang granola I've ever had. I'm eating it right now and had to log in and comment on how delicious it is. I added 1/2 c. golden raisins and 1/2 c. cranberries.

I was just sitting and thinking I haven't made Alton's trail mix in a while, I'll have to check out the recipe and make a batch again. Got a craving and after reading these reviews I remember why. Thanks for the memories, can't wait to get started! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just delicious!!! Easy to substitute anything too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is addictive! I forgot to add the raisins and I subbed walnuts for cashews, but it's still perfect! I also used large unsweetened coconut flakes and you don't miss the sugar at all. To make it delightfully crunchy, I left it in the oven for 30 minutes after I turned it off. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have been making this for about 5 years or so. I have made it with dried cranberries, blueberries, cherries, dates... everything except raisins. I usually use almonds or pecans. I prefer REAL maple syrup over flavored corn syup and it makes a world of difference with this recipe. Alton is the bomb and as usual, gave me a recipe I will keep forever! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I make this granola recipe all the time...it is my fav! I've tried other recipes and found them to be drier and tasteless. Some reviews complain of the cooking time and stirring every 15 minutes but I feel the low temperature really caramelizes the sugars and makes it so tasty. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Excellent recipe! Used sliced almonds instead and didn't use raisins, and opted for one cookie sheet, and it turned out excellently. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The best recipe for granola! I modify the recipe by toasting the oats separately from the nuts (I add pecans too) and coconut. I found that nuts and coconut toasts a lot faster than the oats. I also make it with Gluten Free oats for my celiac husband. - Thanks Alton for this tasty granola recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is super good, I did adjust some things since I basically used what I had in my pantry. Instead of veg oil, I used coconut oil and dried cherries and currants instead of raisins.

This recipe is super ! I substituted the raisins for cranberries, added pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds, used agave syrup instead of maple syrup and added some imitation coconut extract for added flavor. As mentioned by another person earlier, I'd suggest turning the oven down to 225 degrees. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great taste and crunch!!! I made this recipe to the T the first few times, but surprisingly it's quite a lot of calories. Of course, there are plenty of other things out there that are more unhealthy than granola, but after measuring everything, it was a little over 500 calories for a cup of this stuff, and I don't know about you, but I couldn't stop eating it after just a cup. I used only a few sprays of canola oil instead of a tablespoon of oil, only used 2 tablespoons each of brown sugar and maple syrup, and didn't like too many nuts so only used 1/2 of what the recipe called for. Granola tasted just as good and it was only about 350 calories for a cup, which is a bit better. Wonderful core recipe, will continue to make it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This stuff is fantastic! While I use about the same ratio for the dried fruit, I combine golden raisins, dried blueberries and dried cherries. Great for a long car trip, to have something good to munch on. Girlfriend referes to it as homemade, crunchy, candy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was a good basic recipe. I increased the oats to 4 cups and it was still too salty for my taste. I reduced the salt to 1/2 teaspoon with the 4 cups of oats. I also didn't use as many nuts - only 1/2 cup of each. My oven browned too fast at 250 degrees so I turned it down to 225. Raisns and craisins and/or any other dried fruits were nice additions. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Yummy! Excellent recipe with how tasty, easy and adaptable it is. I was able to use up leftover shredded coconut, craisins from an ill thought out Costco shopping trip and nuts from other recipes. The recipe is excellent as is, but the ability to make substitutions with what you have on hand and not ruin the integrity of it is impressive. I did eliminate the extra 2T of maple syrup and not miss it. (I was too lazy to go get the measuring spoon. Just finished my first batch and am clamoring to get home and make another. Perfect over Greek yogurt or just out of the jar for a late day snack. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I scoured the internet, looking for a good homemade granola recipe. I collected many different ones - from a variety of different websites. I compared and contrasted and got really overwhelmed by all the different options out there. However, after trying a few, I can honestly say that this one turned out the best. It is the best homemade granola I have ever had. I brought it to a brunch with friends and it was a huge hit there too! I did substitute honey for the maple syrup, but I&amp;#39;m sure the syrup would turn out great too (I just didn&amp;#39;t have any on hand at the time. Also, I learned that if you want a crispier granola, be sure to spread thinly on pan (don&amp;#39;t pile high and let cool IN PAN after removing from oven. This is the best granola I&amp;#39;ve made and am happy to say that I will never never have to look for another granola recipe again! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I own a bed and breakfast and make some version of this recipe (doubled every few weeks. Guests love it. I have tried all different combinations of dried fruit (cut into raisin-sized bits but I keep the core as-is. It is always excellent. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Pretty good. I used tandoori flavored almonds in place of sliced plain almonds. After it cooled for about 20 minutes I added 1/2 C craisins, 1/2 C dry unsweetened apricots (cut into bits, 1/2 C dry sweetened pineapple bits. I would be tempted to add more cashews since they are my favorite. I would also add more coconut next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So good, and no fail. Periodically I might try another recipe, and this is the only one that just works really well. I cut the sugar a bit by omitting the extra 2Ts of maple syrup and brown sugar (it&amp;#39;s sweet enough with just 1/4C of each and using unsweetened coconut flakes. Coconut oil is a much healthier oil than canola or other vegetable oil, so I always make that substitution. Timing and temp. is perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Alton Brown Recipes: Concise, Consistent... And this one is Crunchy! I probably should have started with Alton Brown&amp;#39;s recipe to begin with. He has never steered me wrong. His recipes work!

My introduction was at my daughter's house on one of our visits, I couldn't get out of it, and had to take some home. It is excellent on ice cream, or right out of the jar. What makes it for me is the maple syrup, I don't change a thing when I make it, the combination is excellent. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm sure this version is tasty, but I modified it a lot to make a lower calorie granola. My boyfriend (who doesn't like sweet things though it was awesome! I omitted the coconut and brown sugar, reduced the oil to 3 tbsp, substituted craisins for the raisins and added cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and cayenne pepper to the mix. Will definitely make this again, perhaps with unsweetened coconut next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I tried a different recipe and it burned the coconut and just was not good. Thank goodness I found this very easy and delicious recipe.

Two words... coconut oil! Replace recommended oil with it, and it is not only healthier, but compliments the taste oh so nicely! I also add pepitas (pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, pecans, cashews, and flax (for omegas. It's a wonder my kids love it!!! De-lish!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is fabulous and very easy! I substituted honey for maple syrup, pecans for cashews and sliced almonds for slivered almonds.

I made this recipe for a component of trail mix I made for my father for father's day. I used all sliced almonds instead of cashews (because i didn't want to buy 2 kinds of nuts, on a budget!. it was so good, before assembling the trail mix I kept picking at it and had to hide it on myself, no joke! great sweet and salty balance. It didn't cluster as much as I would like for a trail mix, but i could see this being great as a granola itself and still would definitely put in in my next trail mix batch! another amazing Alton dish item not reviewed by moderator and published

We went on vacation to a bed and breakfast in Vermont. They had granola every morning for breakfast. I loved it so much I searched for a recipe. I have always loved Alton's recipes so I decided to try it. Let me tell you it is better than the granola in Vermont. I have it for breakfast, eat it alone or even on ice cream. The only change I made was I used dried cherries, cranberries, blueberries and apricots. Try this recipe you will not be disappointed. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family loves this recipe! I keep a bowl in the kitchen at all times for anyone to grab when they want. I line my baking sheets with parchment paper for easy cleanup. I usually make a double recipe - using 1/4 cup expeller pressed safflower oil &amp; 1/4 cup extra virgin coconut oil. I also add 1 cup pecans, 1 cup macadamia nuts and 1 cup walnuts in addition to the almonds.(keeping proportions the same I also add flax seeds, a bit of honey and a teaspoon of cinnamon to the doubled recipe. I toss it once at 40 mins. Once baked, I add the raisins &amp; also dried blueberries - and depending on what I have on hand - anything from dried cherries, dried pineapple to mango with fabulous reviews from the family. It's a winner. Make it exact per the recipe or add what you love. It always comes out delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Tasty? Amazing!!!! I didn't have cashews and maple syrup. Instead of maple syrup I used 1/2 molasses and 1/2 honey, and instead of vegetable oil, I used canola oil. I added cinnamon too.

Very good. I sometimes use honey instead of maple syrup. I usually add walnuts with the almonds instead of cashews. I also mix dried cranberries in with the raisins..

Excellent! I used pine nuts and pistachios in place of the almonds and cashews, because that's all I had on hand.

I serve mine over yogurt and it makes an excellent breakfast and a yummy late night snack! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Best Granola!! I have tried several different recipes and this is everyone's favorite. I make this almost weekly. My son brought 3 empty cannisters to refill, I think his room mates are eating too.

Perfectly crunchy! As another reviewer mentioned, I used coconut oil in place of the veggie oil to make it a bit healthier.

Wow! So I made this recipe as Christmas gifts for a group of 12 friends. I bought the ingredients in bulk and gifted the finished product in adorable 1/2 quart mason jars. I've never made granola and this recipe was so easy and absolutely delicious. I did add 1 tablespoon of kentury bourbon vanilla and then would switch up the nuts and coconut based on the tastes of my friends. A week later I would get text pictures of their empty mason jars. 3 weeks later people are still talking about "my granola". I will be doing this annually from here on out. item not reviewed by moderator and published
