  1. I decided to try this as I’ve been struggling to find a granola that is both gluten free and refined sugar free. It has just come out of the oven looking and smelling delicious! I can’t stop nibbling at it and can’t wait for breakfast tomorrow now, yum!!

    1. Hi Emma, you could use less oil if you wanted to! It definitely helps to bind it together more though. Give it a try and see how you get on.

  2. I love this stuff! I made it this a.m. and I am ecstatic that this granola tastes so good. I won’t be using it as a cereal but as a lovely snack. I love that it’s so easy to make and yet will be a good go-to snack to take to my knitting group tomorrow. Thank you so much!

  3. I’m making this recipe all the time now. Sometimes I don’t have all the ingredients called for but this recipe still tastes marvelous with substitutes like raisins, coconut flakes, olive oil, hazelnuts… I have a pan in the oven right now and I can’t wait for it to bake. It’s my lunch today! 🙂
