I will never eat packaged granol;a again! My husband loves it. It is easy to vary the granola by simply substituting different dried fruits and nuts and almost any juice will work. I agree with baking for about 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees, this also allows for more dry ingredients which increases the nutritional value and reduces the sugar content per serving.

This is our all time favorite granola. My husband requests it frequently because he loves the green pistachios in it. I have substituted whatever juice I have on hand for the cider with no change in the overall flavor. Just recently I baked the granola instead of cooking it on the stove, and we felt it had a better texture to it. I will probably do that from now on.

This granola is da bomb! Very easy to make, very good, and you can vary the ingredients easily. The only change I usually make is to use dried cranberries instead of the cherries, saves me some $$. Next time I'll try baking it a little and see how that turns out.

This delicious recipe was a hit as part of a multi-course holiday brunch. I have had several requests for the recipe. I made it exactly as described and plan to make it often.

Quick & easy to make and super yummy. I took the suggestion of a couple of reviewers and baked mine for about 15 minutes at 350. It really made a nice difference. I also used apple juice and cherry-flavored Craisins and this was just a great hit. Can't wait to try it again with different juice/nut combos.
