Hey i tried your recipe. Hands down the best recipe for granola. My son absolutely loved it. Thank you so much. I didn’t have pecans and maple syrup so i substituted with coconut shavings, almonds and honey. Definitely will make a big batch again. Thanks once again

Hi Gemma,
Delicious recipe….substituted pecans for salted peanuts and omitted the extra salt…..saved to favourites ❤️ Love your recipes….made lemon curd ice cream after making both the lemon curd and condensed milk…I’m sure if I kept a cow I could make double cream and hard cheese…using your recipes of course! Love your videos too….

This granola is great–the perfect ratio of ingredients. Just the right amount of sweetness, crunch and hint of maple.

Your recipes are always so easy and delicious. I used this as a base and used whatever I had on hand… weetbix, oats, pumpkin seeds, coconut, almond flakes. Left out the sugar and just used maple syrup. Also used butter instead of oil. Topped off with dried cranberries. Turned out great with your low and slow method. So delicious. The family all loved it… including the 2 year old!

I also added (fresh out of the oven) 55g of cranberries and an equal amount of dried apricots cut in chunks. I also added a tad of vanilla extract and… Read more »

Just made your granola recipe but used walnuts and almonds instead of pecans and used coconut sugar instead of brown sugar. Everything else the same. It tastes great

This is by far the best granola I’ve ever had. I have made it a few times now for my family. I make a batch with the pecans,coconut and pumpkin seeds for me and my husband… and a batch of just the coconut with no nuts for the kids! They love it. I’m just curious tho..would it be considered a healthy granola (or is it considered high in sugar)? Thanks so much!
