    Do you know approximately how much does this cost per serving?

  2. Jackie says:

    I’m going to try this recipe. I recently made this Pumpkin Pie Granola and it is great! Just thought with the fall season it would b a good one to share as well.

  3. Monica says:

    What are “rolled oats”?

  4. Cassie Howard says:

    sandy: Hmm, it’s hard to say, but the almonds and maple syrup are the most expensive items. Everything else is very cheap.

    Jackie: Thanks for sharing, that looks good!

    Monia: Just regular rolled oats that you can get at any grocery or bulk food store. Make sure not to use “Quick Cooking” rolled oats, though.

    Thanks for sharing! Can’t wait to make it!

  6. Pamela @ FabulousSavings.ca says:

    I’ve been wanting to try my own granola – looks good & so does the pumpkin pie granola recipe Jackie posted – thanks for sharing, ladies!

  7. Jenn says:

    Do you think I could replace the butter with oil? I’m avoiding dairy but looking for a good granola recipe.

  8. Cassie Howard says:

    Jenn: Yes, you could do that.

  9. Abbie says:

    I just made this with Quick Cooking Rolled oats because it’s all I had. It turned out just fine, just cut cooking time down to 30 minutes.

  10. Sierra says:

    Is there a big price deference between buying and making?

    • Cassie Howard says:

      It depends on where you buy your ingredients. I buy mine from the Bulk Barn (usually) and it’s much cheaper to make my own.

    I have an healthier, quicker recipe for homemade granola. It is a cereal recipe, but I use it on plain yogurt.
    2 1/2 cups large flake rolled oats
    1/2 cup each of sliced almonds, sunflower seeds, wheat germ, and honey. You can also add ground flax seeds to this.
    Mix oats, almonds, seeds and wheat germ together; stir in honey to coat. Spread on foil-lined cookie sheet.
    Bake at 300F for 40 mins, stirring 3 times ( or about every 10 mins)
    I prefer to drip the honey over the mixture after spreading in on the cookie sheet; I find it easier than trying to stir the honey around.
    Makes about 4 cups. Per 1/4 cup; 149 cal, 5g Pro, 6g total fat ( 1g sat.), 22g carb, 3 g fibre
