Okay, I would like to have a few Granola Recipes to make and take with me to the Smokies next week. Anyone wanting to share the good stuff is more than welcome to (along with any other quick recipe for a good snack!). I have an Atmos 65 pack, and I'd like to put the Granola or other recipe in a ziplock bag and put that in my waist-belt zipper-pouch. Thanks!

I use this granola recipe and like it:

3 cups of old fashioned oats
2 tablespoons of butter
2 cups of dried cranberries
1 cup of flaked coconut
1 cup of slivered almonds
2 tablespoons of oil
3 tablespoons of honey


Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
Spread onto a greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 200 degrees F. for 1 hour or until top is golden brown. Stir twice with a wooden spoon during baking.
Cool after removing from the oven

I made it last night, only took out the coconut (for my wife), and added chocolate chips and a little extra honey. VERY good recipe! Thanks royal

Pulse the dates and 1/4 cup dired cherries in a food processor and add spices and carob powder.Grind down to a thick paste.. toast the almonds in a non stick pan to fragrant. Don't burn them..Add them to the Date mixture and chop them in. Take the blade out of the processor and add the Remaining dried cherries.. Line a square pan with plastic wrap.. Press the mixture into the pan and refrigerate for One Hour..Take the pan out flipp the pan on a cutting board and cut in to pieces..
