  1. Kellie made some last year but it was not as sweet as I like it. However, this recipe seems too sweet! I love granola but also hate this 30lbs I need to lose!

  2. The honey and stuff is soaked up over a huge batch so it really doesn't taste overly sweet. Matthew isn't much on really sweet things and he LOVED it. We had some for breakfast this morning. I just used Crasins- not the raisins too because I didn't have any. I think that will help with the sweet. Maybe add more nuts and less coconut too. Hope that helps!
