Spread the granola out on a baking sheet and bake until golden and crunchy, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool to room temperature before serving.

Delicious granola. Tastes like the one served at the Marriott hotel's Sunday brunch.

I make this ALL the time. I bake the granola until gently browned, stirring often. I add Craisens (or raisins) after baking, stir them in a allow to cool. I have used olive oil instead of butter and for lower sugar, leave out the brown sugar.

Roasted/toasted almonds produce a chemical that has been linked with cancer. I'd put in chopped, raw almonds and dried fruit AFTER you bake it.

Didn't come out well cooked but burned! Rasins were totally burned, but the oats and almonds tasted good . -Monalisa
