Homemade granola is healthier and tastier than shop bought, not to mention less expensive. It's also very easy to make. This is a fantastic recipe that tastes great with milk or with yoghurt and fresh fruit.
Instead of dried cranberries, you can use any other dried fruit - sultanas, raisins, chopped dates, currants, blueberries, etc.
My first effort at home made Granola. This recipe is excellent and produces a very authentic result. Produced a kilo of Granola which was devoured by the family by the following morning. Next time I will be rationing it! Used mixed fruit instead of cranberries. - 14 Feb 2012
I only made one change in the recipe's ingredients--I used chopped pecans in place of the walnuts. I mixed everything together BUT the cranberries. I baked my granola at 250 for an hour, stirring every 15 minutes. When the granola was crisp, I took it out, let it cool and then stirred in the cranberries (The reason I did this was because I've never had luck cooking the raisins/cranberries with the granola. For some reason, they always turn out burned. Now, I just add them after baking). The combination of ingredients in this granola were fantastic--very, VERY good. - 09 Aug 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Fun & easy to make. I've made this a few times already & usually add raisins. Great for healthy snack or homemade cereal. I suggest after baking you spread it on wax paper to allow it to cool & get crunchy. It might stick on pan as it hardens. - 22 Mar 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
