This is a lovely recipe- my current go-to granola recipe. I make a big batch and give it to friends. Everyone loves it. Sometimes I add cinnamon and/or cardamom, sometimes not. But I always add dried fruits.

This is one of our favorite granolas! I get requests all the time to make it for brunches. Great snack anytime of day.

We love this granola! I increased the amount of oats to 4 cups, and reduced the maple syrup to 1/2 cup and the olive oil to 1/3 cup. Also eliminated the brown sugar and substituted 1/4 cup of Truvia Baking Blend. The result is pretty much perfect. I also add dried cherries after the granola is baked and cooled. I make it the minute it runs out!

Super good. I make this recipe almost every week (er, yes, we eat that much granola) with the following changes: 1/4 c olive oil no brown sugar almonds instead of pecans I also line the baking sheet with parchment to prevent sticking.

Where are the other 2 recipes that she had on the show? I would like to make the Pistachio and Sour Cherry one, but don't know how much of each to put in. Can you post that recipe also, please?
