Mari King November 26, 2012 Is this supposed to be so wet?! The only thing I did differently was replace half the maple syrup with honey, but it is very wet and mushy, not the right texture for granola. I think there may be too much coconut oil in this recipe? Mariel Lewis November 26, 2012 Hello Mari! 2/3 of a cup is right. My granola turned out really crunchy. Maybe next time try using maple syrup instead of honey? Priscilla Pedraza January 20, 2013 Mine too!! I ended up leaving it in the oven for 20min one side and then 20min.. It still looked very wet so I broiled it . It actually worked but I also used honey instead syrup.. We ate it with warm almond milk !! Delishhh! Lori November 27, 2012 Hi Mariel. I’m not a big fan of dates. Would this recipe be successful if I just left them out? Mariel Lewis November 27, 2012 Hi Lori! Yes, you can totally leave them out. However, I would suggest replacing them with your favorite dried fruit: cranberries, raisins, apricots, etc. Chris January 2, 2013 It’s a bit hard to tell. What’s a good measurement for serving? From the pictures, it looks to be 1/2 cup? Mariel Lewis January 2, 2013 Hi Chris! That’s exactly right! 1/2 cup is what counts as 1 serving. karen ross January 8, 2013 Hi, Thank you so much for this wonderful granola recipe. I cannot believe that something so tasty can be so good for me. Kristina January 25, 2013 So one of my favorite things in the world to eat is granola but I’m VERY allergic to coconut. Can you recomend substitutes for the shredded coconut and coconut oil? Mariel Lewis January 26, 2013 Hi Kristina. You can use more nuts (your favorite) or dried fruit to sub for the shredded coconut. As for the coconut oil, I am not sure if this can be subbed…maybe try using a bit of honey instead of the oil? Let me know what you end up doing! Amanda May 20, 2013 This was delicious. I skipped the parchment and it worked fine. Added dried cherries and dried cranberries, omitted nothing. Kids and adults both loved it. Dates are a pain to chop so I may skip that next time. Otherwise couldn’t be easier. Needed about 10 more minutes in the oven, maybe for lack of parchment. Great recipe. Mariel Lewis November 2, 2013 So glad to know you liked this recipe, Amanda! Jessica September 23, 2013 This is awesome with chopped bacon, too!! Mariel Lewis November 2, 2013 Oh wow, wouldn’t’ve thought of that one! Thanks for sharing.
