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
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 & 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 & 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
