    This recipe was hard to rate. Although, it tastes fine and actually has a nice flavor it certainly is NOT granola! It reminded me more muesli or un-cooked flavored oatmeal. There was not enough sugar or fat to create a granola taste or texture. I gave it 4 stars, as I would consider the flavor combination for hot oatmeal to serve about four people. I followed the recipe exactly even using quick oats. My only change was subbing chopped walnuts as it was what I had.

    Very quick and easy! Based on the previous reviews, I subbed old fashioned oats for the quick oats.For my personal taste, I also subbed Craisins for the golden raisins and added a few dashes of pumpkin pie spice at the end.

    i just made this recipe twice, once with quick oats and once with old fashioned. the kids ate most of the first batch plain and over yogurt. Glad I made 2 batches! I used dried apricots instead of raisins and threw in some craisins for good measure. Very easy and tasty

    I use regular oats. It gives it a better texture. Mix with yogurt for a quick and filling breakfast.
