"I like to have a batch of granola on hand during the hectic holidays. It makes a great portable snack with lots of fiber and is also good served on yogurt or reduced-fat ice cream." --Jennifer Sransky, Birmingham, Alabama

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Combine oats, almonds, and next 4 ingredients (through raisins) in a medium bowl. Combine honey and butter. Drizzle honey mixture over oat mixture; toss to coat. Spread mixture in a single layer onto a jelly-roll pan. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes; stir. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely on pan. Break into pieces.

I never made my own granola before this, but decided to give this recipe a try. i came out great. i have substituted walnuts for pecans at times and added chopped dates. Gotta have the dried cherries! Do not leave this in the oven one second longer than stated in the recipe. It will get overdone.

I would recommend spraying the pan with cooking spray (mine got baked on), and reducing temp or cooking time by at least 5 minutes. I was not terribly impressed. CL has other granola recipes that I have liked better.
