    Love this one! I have had to exchange some of the ingredients because I didn't have everything on hand...ie: didn't have almonds, used pecans instead. left out coconut. still, it was a hit. Looking forward to the next batch! sadly, it doesn't last long with my crew.

    I omitted the butter, added more honey for binding, changed sesame seed for Ground flax seed. Not sure I will use coconut, used crandberries instead of rasins. Love it and sooo easy!

    I love this granola! I used coconut oil instead of butter and it was out of this world. Everyone wants the recipe.I added nuts according to what amts and type I like. I used pumpkins seeds, almonds and sunflower seeds. I did not measure just added until it looked as I thought it should. I followed the amounts for the oatmeal, honey and coconut oil exactly and the ratio was perfect.

    There is about 600 calories in a cup.

    .5 cup of granola is about 300 calories. I use about 1/3 of a cup over granola.

    what is calorie and fat content per serving?

  • 6 Oct, 2009

    There is no reason why you have to have coconut in this granola. You could leave it out, and it would be fine!

    I wish there was an answer for that first question because that is exactly what I thought.
