this is from SweetSavvy: GRANOLA
Here is a basic recipe for granola that you can modify to your taste. If you want more fiber and protein and less sweet, use with more nuts and seeds and little or no fruit. If you want a sweeter granola, add more dried fruits and fewer nuts and even more sweetener to taste. This recipe has no added fat and can be fat-free if nuts are omitted.
* Spread the mixture out on a cookie sheet and stir every 5 minutes or so.
* BE SURE TO LINE THE PAN WITH PARCHMENT PAPER--GRANOLA WILL STICK TO THE PAN.
* Dry sweeteners will make a crunchier granola.
* If you find that the dried fruit burns, make the granola without the fruit and mix it in after the granola is baked.
For my test recipe I used rolled oats, almonds, raisins, evaporated cane juice, cinnamon and nutmeg, and vanilla, in the proportions given in the recipe, plus one egg white. It was delicious.
