  • It’s important to allow the granola to cool without stirring it after it comes out of the oven. This will allow some clusters to form!
  • I do not recommend substituting the butter with coconut oil. For dairy free, I would stick to vegan butter. The buttery flavor is what helps to make this granola taste like a cinnamon raisin cookie!
  • Be sure your storage container is well-sealed to keep the granola fresh! Also, be sure not to store it away until it is completely cooled!

I ams so excited to hear what you think of this crunchy cinnamon raisin cookie granola! It is seriously SO delicious- I cannot recommend giving this recipe a try enough! It’s just the perfect pairing with your breakfasts or snacks. Enjoy! 🙂

    Hi Mia, what are some crispy rice cereal
    Options you recommend?

  2. Char says:

    Since coconut oil isn’t recommended as a sub for df butter in this recipe (I’m assuming because of taste?) could I use a butter flavored coconut oil?

  3. Clementine says:

    Hi, I don’t have access to rice cereal. Can I just use more oats instead? Thank you!
