This granola is not overly sweet, nor does it have large clusters of granola which are formed by adding more honey or syrup. I was trying to make something a little healthier. If you prefer a much sweeter granola, simply up the amount of honey you use in the recipe by a few tablespoons. I also omitted the salt from the recipe to keep the sodium down. You can add 1/4 teaspoon of salt if you prefer.
You can store this Cherry Almond Granola Recipe in a airtight container for 2-3 weeks. Of course in our house, it didn’t last that long!
