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….

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,
We love this as a base. We use vanilla and cinnamon, as well as other nuts, craisins, and dates. It never makes it two months! Trust me!

2 questions.

  1. What does the water do in this recipe?
  2. My kids would prefer “clusters”. What can I do to make it more clustery? Thanks!!!

Ingredient questions. Can I use something other than Maple syrup? Is this shredded coconut used, sweetened or unsweetened coconut? Thanks!!!

Hi! I’ve been loving this granola recipe. Is there anyway I can make this without sugar? Can I just skip the sugar? Or would that mean I may need to increase the amount of maple syrup? What do you suggest?

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!
