Get ready to fall in love with my favorite breakfast! When I went oil free I was really sad that I could no longer enjoy this recipe as I had previous baked it with oil. Thanks to Mary McDougall, I learned that I could replace oil with a prune puree. The exciting news is it tastes the same as when I baked it with oil! No one can tell the difference! Success! Introducing my heart healthier Famous Granola.
