A delicious granola without all the fat. Perfect for breakfast with yoghurt and honey.
Excellent and so easy to make. Made this for myself and everyone loved it. I did adapt it slightly as I do not like dried apricots, I used dried dates instead, and golden linseed in place of the flax. Will not be buying Granola from the shops again. - 21 Jul 2013
I love this granola! It's delicious. I didn't have the spelt flour so I used ww pastry. Only had sugar free pancake syrup so I used that for the maple syrup. Turned out perfect, thanks! - 20 Oct 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I totally appreciate a recipe that can cut fat yet doesn't sacrifice much, if anything. This recipe fits that bill. There is a subtle difference between this and one that uses more oil and boils a syrup first, but it's not a 'step down' kind of difference. This one won't 'chunk up' because of that and seems a little drier, but has so much flavor! I was skeptical that the applesauce would produce a crisp granola, but it worked! Very crisp. Must be the flour that helps it along. I used 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 ground flax to make up for the spelt flour I didn't have. I also left out the maple syrup I didn't have and this was plenty sweet. I added in almonds for the pecans, and dried blueberries for the apricots(topped with a few fresh for the photo). Fyi, this makes about 4 cups. Thank you so much for the recipe. It will be made often in this kitchen. - 27 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
