Help me vary my granola recipe?

sholli | May 14, 2010 09:11 AM

I like my basic granola recipe, but am interested in suggestions on ways to vary it, since I've been making it for a while and am about to make a large quantity in preparation for maternity leave.

Currently, I bake/toast oats w/ a very small amount of brown sugar/molasses/honey, a little oil, and enough water or juice to let me mix it all together. I usually use a touch of vanilla, cinnamon, and sometimes cardamom, along with nuts (usually almonds), and sometimes some filler in the form of wheat germ, oat bran, etc. I then add dried or fresh fruit at serving.

Any interesting ideas on ways to vary the flavors a bit? I do so already with the fruit and sometimes by varying the nuts, but I'm interested in others' favorite additions or other ways to switch it up.
