On the whole excellent but it was way too sweet (even with half the sugar) which is impressive given my addiction to sweet things. I added flax seed, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and dried cranberries. I will absolutely be making this again but with even less sugar.

I've made this recipe several times over the past two years. I've changed the nuts used craisins and raisins and its a never fail recipe. I love it.

Great and easy! I used a "health" mix that I found in the grocery of dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, peanuts, almonds and raisins for the 2 cups of dried fruit. Perfect! Great over yogurt!

I have been making this for years. I have to triple the Batch or it will be gone in a day.

Awesome recipe! Great over yogurt. I used craisins, dried bananas, sunflower seeds, sliced almonds and pumpkin seeds. Needed to make another batch the next day since the first one disappeared!

I just made this. It tastes great. I added 1/4 cup of peanut butter to the honey mixture. And it's great as a cereal. I will definitely share this recipe with family and friends.
