Ok so this is just amazing. Nothing else can be said 😁


Jess - June 1, 2024, 2:26 p.m.

I tried a lot of store bought granola, never liked it at all (and it's really expensive). Couldn't understand the hype.

And then I tried this one. It's really the first one I like in my life. Thank you for that, it's amazing !


Fransisca Badenhorst - May 6, 2024, 7:08 p.m.

This is my go to breakfast now. I leave the sugar out, it still tastes very very delicious. I absolutely love that I can make home made granola. I can see what I eat. You and your team is awesome to make clean eating delicious.


Dila - March 18, 2024, 8:12 a.m.

My go to granola! My husband asks me to make this every week so he can have some nutritious breakfast on the go! Thank you for making our lives so easy 💜 I have been following you since when you were filming in your house and loving all the recipes since then. Love from Portland/OREGON

PUL Team - March 20, 2024, 8:29 p.m.

Awe thanks for being part of the community for so long, Dila, what an honour! How nice of you to make it each week as well. Sending lots of love to Portland 🤗


Melusine - March 17, 2024, 5:46 p.m.

I've been making this granola for months, just switching ingredients from time to time with what I have on hand. It never fails, I love it !

PUL Team - March 19, 2024, 1:48 a.m.

Yayy so glad that the granola is being enjoyed, Melusine, and love the idea to change it up 😃


Soujanya Lekkala - Feb. 18, 2024, 11:51 p.m.

Yummy and healthy


Soujanya Lekkala - Feb. 18, 2024, 11:50 p.m.

Thank you for sharing a healthy and tasty recipe, we made it today and it turned out delicious 😋


Any - Feb. 16, 2024, 12:17 p.m.

It is really delicious!! Thank you for sharing the recipe ♡♡


Alison Sutherland - Jan. 15, 2024, 5:22 a.m.

Love thisGranola! Easy to make and use in so many ways.


Molly W - Jan. 8, 2024, 4:11 p.m.

Have made this a few times now and is such a great every day granola!

The Pecans caramelise as they bake and are sweet crunchy little gems! I swap one cup of oats with plain puffed rice that gets coated in brown sugar and give a little extra texture! Delicious!

PUL Team - Jan. 9, 2024, 7:41 a.m.

Mmmm sounds so delicious, Molly, thank you! 🙌✨


Shama - Jan. 7, 2024, 7:48 p.m.

I make this all the time. Super easy to modify, too. I do think you should add the chia seeds while it's still quite warm so it sticks to the oats, otherwise they just settle to the bottom of your storage container.


Nhu Le - Dec. 16, 2023, 3:13 a.m.

I have made this granola SO many times! Super flexible recipe too, just swap out same amounts of seeds, nuts, or fruits depending on what you have on hand!

PUL Team - Dec. 16, 2023, 7:25 a.m.

Yayyy we're thrilled that the granola is being enjoyed, Nhu, thank you! 🤗


Genevieve - Dec. 15, 2023, 5:46 p.m.

Amazing recipe! We do it all the time!
I usually add puffed quinoa, and replace the cranberries w/ chopped dates and dried apricots 👍

PUL Team - Dec. 15, 2023, 9:35 p.m.

Mmm sounds lovely, Genevieve, thank you! 😃


Martine - Dec. 5, 2023, 7:16 p.m.

Delicious and very tasty, easy to make too 👌🏼 Love this recipe 😍


Deidra B - Dec. 1, 2023, 11:33 p.m.

It's one of my favorite recipes. It's a staple in my home. So much so that I ALWAYS have these ingredients on hand in the event I want to make a batch.

PUL Team - Dec. 1, 2023, 11:38 p.m.

Awww love it! So glad the granola is being enjoyed, Deidra ☺️


Evelien Van Hooff- Liedorp - Nov. 16, 2023, 1:43 p.m.

Looks perfect in my bowl! I'll try it tomorrow since I can't have nuts today.


Billie - Oct. 5, 2023, 11:16 p.m.

Absolutely delicious, so much fresher tasting than store bought granola. Have made this for many years, it's so easy and the ingredients are easy to find and store. Actually, it's probably time to add another recipe to my list 😉

PUL Team - Oct. 5, 2023, 11:19 p.m.

We're so thrilled that the granola is being enjoyed, Billie! It's one of our favourites. We have lots of other delicious granola recipes on the blog if you're interested in changing things up though 😉


Kris - Sept. 17, 2023, 1:38 a.m.

This has always been one of my go-to recipes for the past couple of years. I can’t recommend it enough!!! It’s always the perfect start to my day ☺️

PUL Team - Sept. 17, 2023, 7:07 a.m.

Oh we're so happy to hear, Kris - thank you for the kind words!


Kati - Sept. 6, 2023, 1:24 p.m.

Delicious! Making it for the fifth time 😃


priscilla - Aug. 3, 2023, 12:06 p.m.

My family loves this !


Tania Allan - Aug. 1, 2023, 3:12 p.m.

My new go-to granola! Yummm


Elise - July 10, 2023, 6:43 a.m.

Superdelicious:)
Just be careful at the baking time... Not to long or it'll burn


Amulya - July 2, 2023, 2:50 a.m.

I make this granola recipe all the time. Thank you for a great breakfast option 😍


Lilly - June 27, 2023, 7:14 p.m.

This is my most fav granola! I already made it 10+ times. It’s not too sweet and the amount is quiet right until it would go off . I just prefer to bake it a little longer ( 30-35 minutes )

PUL Team - June 28, 2023, 9:19 a.m.

Such a big compliment, Lilly, thanks a bunch! ✨


Julie Lorimer - June 26, 2023, 11:16 p.m.

Delicious and so easy to make!


Tina - June 26, 2023, 5:30 p.m.


Tara - June 10, 2023, 3:14 a.m.

Wonderful practical tips


Jamie - June 1, 2023, 7:55 a.m.

Really enjoyed how easily this came together and the flavor is fantastic! I only had a half cup of pecans, so I added a half cup of walnuts, too. Thank you for another great breakfast option!

PUL Team - June 1, 2023, 7:29 p.m.

Mmm a delicious modification, Jamie - thank 😃


Dori - May 26, 2023, 8:29 a.m.

Thank you for this recipe! I’ve been eating this granola almost every morning for the past 3-4 years ☺️


Ambreen - April 29, 2023, 11:54 a.m.

My kids love this with milk, its a substitute to cereal in my house. I add lots of different nuts and seeds, I use cocunut sugar instead of regular sugar, going to switch the veg oil for cocunut oil next time. The healthier the better!!!!

PUL Team - May 1, 2023, 12:14 a.m.

So happy it's being enjoyed, Giulia, especially by the little ones 😊


Lisa M - April 29, 2023, 2:33 a.m.

We love this recipe. My husband requests it all the time.


Sandy - April 24, 2023, 11 p.m.

Making this over and over again. Loving it!


Celine Henaff - April 23, 2023, 3:33 p.m.

Favourite breakfast


Joanne - April 2, 2023, 4:55 p.m.

All-time favourite! We eat this daily with our breakfast :)


Romy - March 12, 2023, 9:16 a.m.

My go to favourite granola! Easy to make and very very delicious. Great as a topping to porridge, yoghurt, icecream, banana-peanutbutter-sandwich,... I use walnuts as pecans are really expensive here in Europe and mostly coconut oil, as I feel it makes the granola extra crispy.

PUL Team - March 13, 2023, 4:26 a.m.

A lovely modification, Romy, thank you!


Athina - March 9, 2023, 11:10 p.m.

Tasty and light! Love it with some yogurt and fresh fruit 🙂


Annie - Feb. 12, 2023, 10:33 p.m.

Love this granola! And so do my children and the friends I have given it to, after making batches of it. It was once one of the components of the Christmas hamper I made one Christmas, and it is a regular in our house. Some of my work colleagues have started to make granola at home after I shared some with them, and then shared this recipe! The pecans definitely make a difference, and it helps that this is so easy and so quick to do......infact I sometimes make it even in the morning if we have run out of our last batch!!!
Thank you!

PUL Team - Feb. 12, 2023, 10:40 p.m.

Awe this is so lovely to hear, Annie, thank you! We appreciate the glowing review and are so thrilled the granola is being enjoyed. Nothing like starting off the day by making a delicious batch😎


Lizette - Jan. 7, 2023, 9:12 p.m.

I love this granola. I usually have all the ingredients, it’s easy to make and very tasty. Thank you!

PUL Team - Jan. 7, 2023, 9:28 p.m.

Thanks so much, Lizette!


Martunia - Dec. 30, 2022, 10:25 a.m.

I love this recipe. I made this granola multiple times with different ingredient variables as per your swap suggestions and it came out tasting amazing every time.

PUL Team - Dec. 31, 2022, 3:21 a.m.

So happy to hear, Martunia, thank you!


Jyotsna Tiwari - Dec. 27, 2022, 6:43 p.m.

Made this! Loved it! Switched some dry fruits which were available here.

Munched all of it :D

PUL Team - Dec. 30, 2022, 5:50 a.m.

A lovely idea, Jyotsna, so glad it was enjoyed!


Jyotsna Tiwari - Dec. 8, 2022, 5:50 a.m.

You & Robin Sir are really beautiful and great together. My best wishes to you both. May you both prosper and keep shining and be happy always. <3 I'm following PUL since 2018 probably when you started. It was smoothie video, that I came across first. Since then Pick Up Limes is my absolute favorite!! My morning starts with your videos on my TV(Sit down videos) and on weekends when I need some recipes to make, its PUL again! :). I have shared your videos with my friends and family and they enjoy your videos as well. Thank you for choosing PUL as your full time work. Thank you for all the hard work you do. You put so much effort in all your videos,recipe development,minimalism. You're amazing Sadia!!! Every time I watch you I just want to be like you. I have integrated your minimalism tips in my life. Also tried plant propagation by your videos, I'm crazy for plants just like you ;-). I'm planning to make granola by the recipe you shared over utube. Continue doing what you love to do Sadia, you have no idea how many lives you're improving just by doing what you love. I hope your channel grows day by day, new videos every day, so my feed is just filled with your videos. Your wisdom, recipe ideas, life lessons are a GEM & my motivation to be better person like U.<3

Oh dearest Jyotsna, thank YOU for the incredibly kind word and support - it means so much! Our PUL community wouldn't be the same without you. Sending lots of love to India and hope you enjoy the granola 💛


Valérie & Andi - Aug. 17, 2022, 11:10 p.m.

We love it! The recipe for 30 portions lasts for about 6 portions for us 🙊

PUL Team - Aug. 18, 2022, 12:25 a.m.

Hey Valérie & Andi, we're so glad it's being enjoyed! We'll note down the feedback on the portions too, we find pairing the granola with plant milk and fruit helps the recipe last longer 😜


Arnoldis - July 31, 2022, 6:12 p.m.

I've made this recipe many times over the years: it's never disappointed! Always tastes so good - even better because you know exactly what went in. Truly a minimum effort for maximum results recipe. 10/10, would recommend 😊

PUL Team - July 31, 2022, 9:31 p.m.

Woop woop! It means so much, Arnoldis, thank you for the glowing feedback 🤗


Amber - June 10, 2022, 2:40 a.m.

This is my favorite granola. My kids and I make it all the time. We eat it plain, with yogurt, like a cereal with almond milk... so delicious!

PUL Team - June 12, 2022, 10:55 p.m.

Mmm sounds lovely, Amber! So glad it's being enjoyed :)


Dee - June 9, 2022, 11:26 p.m.

This is one of my favorite recipes ever. I make it regularly and eat it like cereal with a little plant milk. I've shared this with so many people who also love it. It's crunchy, sweet, satisfying, and super easy to make.

PUL Team - June 12, 2022, 10:23 p.m.

We're so honoured to hear, Dee, thanks a bunch 🤗


Caitlen - May 11, 2022, 5:29 p.m.

I've made this recipe now multiple times and still love how yummy, nutritious and easy to make it is! For years, I've read about how making your own granola can be better for your health & your budget, but was always intimidated by how time-consuming/complicated it seemed to be. So I just always used store-bought granola. And also, I just never had any of the ingredients lying around. But I guess after switching from a calorie-focused to a nutrition-first, plant-based diet, my pantry is always packed with various nuts, seeds, dried fruits - so making my own granola is now second nature to me. Thanks so much for all the inspiration and recipes, PUL team! :)

PUL Team - May 12, 2022, 3:22 p.m.

Hello dearest Caitlen, thank you for taking the time to share your experience with the granola! We're so thrilled it's being enjoyed 💚


Prachi - April 26, 2022, 10:12 a.m.

Can i use coconut oil instead of vegetable oil. Thanks.

PUL Team - April 26, 2022, 4:52 p.m.

Hey Prachi! We've heard positive reviews with coconut in place of vegetable oil. Using refined coconut oil instead of unrefined may be desirable for a more neutral flavour 🙂

MARIAN JOHNSON FIELDING - July 10, 2022, 4:14 p.m.

I haven't made this particular recipe, but in the past when I've tried coconut oil in my granola it did not crisp up ... it was more "soggy"... im curious if anyone else had the same experience.


Gabi - April 25, 2022, 11:54 a.m.

Delicious! I loved the recipe. Thank you. ❤️


Shelly - April 23, 2022, 5:13 a.m.

I’m oil free. Can I make this without it and it still come out good?

PUL Team - April 23, 2022, 11:40 p.m.

Hey there, Shelly! The oil helps the granola crisp up so it won't be as crunchy if omitted. You may be interested in our healthiest granola ever that uses dates and tahini in place of oil and sugar if you haven't already seen it: pickuplimes.com/recipe/health… ☺️


Kaja May - April 20, 2022, 11:47 a.m.

So delicious. Thank-you! Our whole family loves this ❤


Gayatri Raghavan - April 19, 2022, 1:09 p.m.

Love the recipe ❤️ The granola looks and tastes so delicious 😋

PUL Team - April 19, 2022, 8:15 p.m.

So happy to hear, Gayatri ☺️


Any - April 6, 2022, 10:18 p.m.

Thank you for this recipe. I made it today and it's delicious ♡♡
Ps. I used agave syrup and forgot to put brown sugar, still yummy!

PUL Team - April 7, 2022, 12:55 a.m.

Thanks for the insight, Any! We're so happy the granola was enjoyed :D


Christianne - April 5, 2022, 8:37 a.m.

I've got my fourth half -batch in the oven as we speak! I halve the recipe as we don't have the baking dishes to accommodate 4 cups of oats plus ingredients. My husband isn't a granola enthusiast but he does happily add this to his bowl of yoghurt and fruit! So this one's definitely a keeper in our house! Thank you for sharing!

PUL Team - April 5, 2022, 9:06 p.m.

Oh, Christianne, we appreciate the kind words so much! So glad the granola is being enjoyed 😊


AnnKa - April 4, 2022, 3:17 p.m.

This is the best granola ever!
I make it every two weeks and enjoy it every morning with a banana or blueberrys and coconut yogurt!
Thank you so much for this recipe!

PUL Team - April 5, 2022, 5:24 a.m.

Aw it means so much, AnnKa, thank you 😃


Paula - April 2, 2022, 8:38 p.m.

Looking forward to trying this recipe

PUL Team - April 3, 2022, 10:26 p.m.

We hope you enjoy it, Paula!


Sruthi - April 2, 2022, 5:32 p.m.

Love your recipes Sadia! I don't have an oven, can this be pan roasted instead? Thanks!

PUL Team - April 3, 2022, 9:09 p.m.

Hey Sruthi, yes you can bake it on a pan if desired. The baking time will be less so we'd recommend keeping a close eye on it and avoiding overly high heat. We've heard positive reviews with around 20 minutes total 🙂


Sarah El Shater - April 2, 2022, 4:06 p.m.

Always enjoy trying your recipes, thank you


Muriel - March 31, 2022, 9:06 p.m.

Yummy! Schnell gemacht und so lecker. Kommt auch bei Kindern als Geschenk / "Mitbringsel" in ein Glas gefüllt richtig gut an.

PUL Team - March 31, 2022, 11:13 p.m.

We're so glad the granola is being enjoyed, Muriel ☺️


Eileen - March 24, 2022, 1:58 a.m.

My family &I love this and all if your granola recipes.

Some time back you had an additional granola recipe that I can’t find on your site anymore.
The wet ingredients had peanut butter, maple syrup and vanilla. The dry ingredients had a puffed rice, cacao nibs and then the usual ingredients.
Is it possible to get that recipe again?

Thank you for having clean and delicious options.

PUL Team - March 24, 2022, 3:13 p.m.

Hi Eileen, thanks for the question! One recipe that comes to mind is our Crunchy Almond & Mango Granola which you can use puffed rice in place of the puffed quinoa we use, and peanut butter in place of almond. Here is the recipe link if that sounds like the right one: pickuplimes.com/recipe/crunch… 😃


Melina - March 15, 2022, 12:51 p.m.

Just made the granola today and it tuned out amazing!
As I don't have an oven I baked it in a pan for around 20 minutes and it worked perfectly as well.
Thank you for all the tasty, nourishing recipes!!

PUL Team - March 15, 2022, 6:31 p.m.

A lovely idea, Melina, thank you for taking the time to share 😃


Amna - March 1, 2022, 7:59 p.m.

You're too kind, Stacy, thank you!


Babs - Feb. 6, 2022, 3:06 p.m.

Absolutely delicious!


Linda - Feb. 2, 2022, 9:32 a.m.

I got up thos morning nice and early to make this granola, so it would still be some bit warm for breakfast. So easy to make. I made the coconut and almond one last week which was a huge hit for the whole family, so I really couldn't wait to try this. It is so scrumptious 💕

PUL Team - Feb. 3, 2022, 1:48 a.m.

Ooo love toasty granola in the mornings, Linda, that sounds incredible 😍 Thank you!


Rose - Feb. 2, 2022, 2:43 a.m.

This granola is not only simple to make, but delicious. I can never go back to store bought granola. Thank you!

PUL Team - Feb. 2, 2022, 4:17 p.m.

Thank you for the glowing review, Rose!


Presbytera Mary Zubricky - Jan. 28, 2022, 4:20 a.m.

My husband and I both love this granola. I’ve made it three or four times; and it is a stable item in our kitchen. Thank you for the recipe!

PUL Team - Jan. 28, 2022, 6:41 p.m.

Woohoo! So thrilled the granola is being enjoyed, Presbytera Mary Zubricky :)


Bronnie - Jan. 27, 2022, 11:25 p.m.

Hi from Australia Sadia!
I love this granola, it's so very tasty & easy to make!
I made a batch for my friend as a thank-you gift & she loves it too.
Thank-you!
Bronnie 🙏😊

PUL Team - Jan. 28, 2022, 6:04 p.m.

Hello Bronnie! Aw so kind of you to gift it to your friend. Sending lots of love to Australia ❣️


Ann - Jan. 25, 2022, 3:53 p.m.

I've become a convert to granola since trying this recipe. It's now a regular choice for breakfast. Love it.

PUL Team - Jan. 27, 2022, 2:34 a.m.

Oh, Ann, it means so much! Enjoy the granola ✨


Merle - Jan. 25, 2022, 6:04 a.m.

I think I've found the perfect granola recipe. I just baked this granola again today. I reduced the brown sugar a bit. It's super easy and tasted just perfect! Thank you, Sadia!

PUL Team - Jan. 27, 2022, 2:31 a.m.

So happy it's being enjoyed, Merle, thank you!


UmmIb - Jan. 25, 2022, 4:23 a.m.

Hi!

I love this recipe! Just wanted to know how many grams is a serving size of one cup please? Trying to keep a track of calories.
Thanks a ton for sharing lovely..

PUL Team - Jan. 27, 2022, 2:30 a.m.

Hey there, UmmIb, it may vary depending on the ingredients used although is between 65-100 grams. For more accurate estimates we recommend working with a healthcare professional, such as a dietitian 😊


Erin - Jan. 21, 2022, 1:14 p.m.

I'd like to try this recipe since it'l sounds delicious! I try not to eat oil so what could I substitute for the oil?

PUL Team - Jan. 21, 2022, 4:42 p.m.

Hey there, Erin! Some PUL community members have reported trying apple sauce in other granola recipes, although the oil helps the granola crisp up which we're uncertain a substitute will do as effectively. One idea may be to add less oil for a less crispy product. In our healthiest ever granola (pickuplimes.com/recipe/health…), we used tahini and dates in place of oil so that may be another idea if you're interested and haven't already seen 😊


Leila - Nov. 8, 2021, 8:01 p.m.

What a yummy granola recipe. The pecans and dried fruit are sooo yummy. I always make this around the fall/winter season 😋 I normally leave the coconut out, and sometimes add in other nuts i have. Love how versatile it is!

PUL Team - Nov. 9, 2021, 2:39 a.m.

Thanks for sharing your experience with this one, Leila!


Vignesh - Oct. 26, 2021, 11:24 a.m.

Thanks, Sadia & team!

I've just made this for the girl I met. It tastes great to me, and I can't wait to hear what she thinks. :D

PUL Team - Oct. 27, 2021, 2:05 a.m.

We hope you enjoy the granola, Vignesh!


Dominika - Oct. 23, 2021, 12:39 p.m.

So yummy ♥


Florence - Aug. 18, 2021, 8:51 p.m.

This is my go to granola recipe! I followed the recipe exactly and it tastes phenomenal and not to mention super easy to make. It has just the right amount of sweetness and the tartness of the dried cranberries gives it a nice contrast. It is my absolute favorite with plant based milk, sprinkled over some yogurt and even on its own. I've gifted this granola to friends and family and they all ask for the recipe. Thanks, PUL!

Amazing 😍 I used coconut oil and added almonds instead of seeds and it is still perfection. Great gift for my friends also. Thank you so much for this recipe.
Greetings from Prague :-)

This is a tried and true granola that I ALWAYS have on hand now. It is so simple and delicious! I have tried others, but always come back to this one. The ratios are perfect and it packs the ideal sweet/salty crunch. As a bonus, the house smells amazing as it bakes!

So glad you're enjoying the granola, Shelby, thanks a bunch for sharing!

This was extremely delicious! It's the first time I've tried making my own granola, and I don't think I ever want store bought again. Very easy to make and so yummy. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Aw how incredible, Laura, so glad you're enjoying the granola 🤗

Love, love, LOVE!!! I’m never buying granola again.


Courtney - July 12, 2021, 12:48 a.m.

This granola recipe is by far the best one I've ever tried! It was quick to make and made my house smell amazing.

Hey Sadia
I love this granola. I didn't have dried cranberries, so I used dried cherries. Sadia I have been making alot of your recipes and I can't say enough about how good they are. Love your lists to replace ingredients. Keep the recipes coming. If you do a cookbook I would definitely buy one

Hello, lovely people! I've started watching your YouTube posts recently. I was seduced by the mix of healthy recipes, vibrant colors (in and out of the dishes), the relaxing music, tender and calming voice and all the good energy that comes from your stories.

Granola is the first recipe I've putted into practice. It's so easy and fun to do it. It's crunchy delicious. My husband, quite a relactant person, is all in for it. He steals little bites from the jar everyday :))

Today I made vibrant blueberries smoothie and I combined it with this granola. Totally vibrant, cheerful explosion of tastes!

I'm so glad I discovered your site. I'll stick to it for other well-balanced ricipes and good mood.

Hehe hello, lovely Mihaela! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your wonderful review with us - it means so much. We're so grateful you've joined our PUL family 🥰


Erin - June 20, 2021, 10:38 p.m.

This was my first time making granola from scratch and I couldn't believe how easy it was! I am never buying pre-made granola again. This is so delicious, the brown sugar really ties it all together. I add this to yogurt or have it with milk. I cannot wait to try other combinations, but this one is an instant favorite.

PUL Team - June 21, 2021, 6:51 a.m.

Oo we're so glad your first homemade granola was a success, Erin! It's totally a game-changer. Happy baking 😃


Nikita Hotwani - June 8, 2021, 9:54 a.m.

Awesome granola ever! I have been making this since almost an year and my family and friends love it. It's so easy and nutritious. Thanks for creating it 😊

PUL Team - June 9, 2021, 5:24 a.m.

We appreciate this so much, Nikita, and so kind of you to share it with your family and friends!

I usually never leave reviews on granola, because honsertly usually they arent that great, and loaded with sugar and oil. I tried this today by making 5 servings (about over 2 cups) and most of it is gone. If you were a skeptic like me give this a try. My mom never really compliments my granola but she was like "this is really good". I left out the sunflower seeds, because I don't usually buy those, lowered the amount of maple syrup a little and brown sugar. The granola is pretty sweet so I might go even a little more shy next time. anyway HIGHLY RECCOMENDD

ps: I never had good homemade granola nad milk but I tried this and it was delicous

PUL Team - May 26, 2021, 5:15 a.m.

Aww thank you for such an incredible review, granola person! We're so thrilled that the granola was enjoyed by you and your mom ✨🥰

Lovely, lovely ☺️
Very crunchy and wholesome granola, and I love the pecans and dried fruits in this one. I had an accident with my brown sugar (it had turned into stone inside the pantry😅), so I couldn’t use it. However, I believe that I wouldn’t miss it that much, as this granola became sufficiently crunchy and sweet by the maple syrup and coconut oil. Would the brown sugar make a big difference?

PUL Team - May 11, 2021, 5:18 a.m.

A lovely question, Louise! We have definitely done the same to brown sugar before too 🙊 Brown sugar helps with the crunchiness because of the molasses and adds a touch of sweetness, but it likely wouldn't be too big of a difference :)
