SO HOW'D IT GO?

Oh, wow. This is fantastic. I made it with maple syrup (as pineappleprincess suggested) and it went extremely well with it. I've had it for breakfast (with milk) for the past week (just ran out today!). I made it with oats, raisins, cranberries, blueberries, flax, peanuts, almonds, pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts, and cinnamon. It was very easy to make too! I love this recipe. Thanks bunches!!!

Sooooo good.  Pure and simple, exactly.  I used everything except I used ground flax seed and wheat germ (about 2 tbps each).  Also, I didn't have agave so I used honey instead.  So yummy.  No need to buy granola, this is better! ;)b

SOG. Seriously. Tell me how to stop eating this!!!!! I've made it three times this week. The last time I used maple syrup 'cause I was out of agave and added craisings and pecans - I think I might like it even better that way.

SOG, you are convincing me of the merits of cinnamon with this recipe. Freaking awesome! I added a tiny pinch of salt and that seemed to bring out the cinnamon taste even more. Perfect with golden raisins and cold soy milk. Or just dry with a spoon. I had no idea homemade granola was so easy.
