Giada DeL. granola recipe - crunchy good!

Susan627 | Apr 29, 2009 12:43 PM

Someone in another post mentioned this recipe. I am always searching for the perfect (for me) granola recipe so tried this and it was great. Crunchy , chewy, chunky and the best part is no added fat. I cut the amount of brown sugar by half as I was using sweetened cranberry juice and it was plenty sweet for me, and I have a sweettooth. You can use any kind of fruit juice - today I used apple juice (and again cut the sugar) and instead of cranberries, used fruit bits and raisins. The possibilities are endless. I didn't put the fruit in until after the baking was completed (35 mins. or so). And I have trouble getting granola to "chunk" so everytime I stirred, I patted it back down in the pan. It made much better chunks than any other recipe I have tried.
