Molasses-Almond Granola

    To reduce the calories, I only used 3 Tablespoons of molasses. It didn't make a difference in the consistency. The color was good and it broke apart nicely to make a good granola. The next time I will subsitute honey for the molasses, just to lessen the strong molasses flavor.

    This was very tasty, but I found it to be extremely sweet. I'd cut out the 2 tbsp or sugar or reduce the amount of molasses the next time I make this.

    This recipe is easy, fast and tastes great! It is a wholesome snack for kids and will keep them filled up for a while. I substituted honey for the sugar and some of the molasses and I used sunflower seeds instead of almonds. The first batch I overcooked and they had a strong burnt taste but the second batch was perfect. I keep the granola in the freezer and pull it out for snacks or crumble it in plain yogurt!

    This was so good. I had two people request batches for themselves. I could taste the salt, but it was subtle and I like the salty/sweet combo.

    Excellent! How granola should be. One bit of advice - I thought 1/2 t. of salt was too much - it needs half that, if any. Otherwise, a great recipe and very easy to make.

    I followed this recipe exactly and it turned out great! I highly recommend it. Whenever I make granola it never clumps, not true for this recipe you actually have to break it apart. It was so easy and so good!

    Mine didn't look like the picture. Mine was very dark brown to black in color. (I think I overcooked it, but it would have been very dark, nonetheless.)

    I've made this recipe for my family and we all enjoyed it so much that I make this regularly as a breakfast food.

    I loved the granola, and so did my friends! It tasted amazing! I couldn't believe it was actually pretty healthy. I ended up using about 1 tablespoon of sugar and it still came out pretty yummy. I also didn't have dried currants, so added some cut up dried bing cherries and goji berries. Great snack!!!
