    your mini marshmellows come in a 101/2 oz. bag. Just use the whole bag . Hope thats helpful.

    I am a cooking novice. Can someone convert for me the 10 1/2 ounces of marshmallows into cups?

    Axadew, if you're hesitant to use the butter and in that amount I make my granola with 3/4 c. honey (or a mixture of honey and real maple syrup) and roughly 2 Tb. of olive oil. And I actually use a citrus infused olive oil that I had gotten as a gift. It adds great flavor to the spices (cinnamon, nutmeg...) in the recipe. (Oh, and I add cut up dried apricots at the end). It works great, it's healthful, the kids love it, and my friends always come back for more.

    Thanks for the info on the brown rice syrup mom2joe. I may not use it in this but I can certainly use the info.

    Wow, somebody has a little too much time on there hands to be so anal about marshmAllows.

    Maybe it's because there's a degree of anonymity through these forums that some feel its o.k to be rude others. No one here claims to be a brainiac, we should just assume that we all like to cook.

    And for me, it's spelled FOR not forO.

  • arsesrus 17 Sep, 2008

    Foro all of you braniacs, it's spelled MARSHMALLOWS, not marshmEllows.

  • mom2joe 6 Sep, 2008

    You can now find marshmellow creame made of brown rice syrup-still "sugary" but with out as much of the refining process.

  • organicmama 22 Jul, 2008

    Anyone have any ideas about what you could use instead of marshmellows to hold it together? Sounds like a great recipe, but I'd like to cut out the refined sugar :o)
