okay--so I have to rant here because I can't leave feedback on the recipe site. atkins has a website with a lot of recipes. found one for granola and decided we would try it tomorrow, so I made it tonight. coconut oil, peanut butter, nuts and unsweetened coconut--lots of nice ingredients. stand over a hot stove stirring constantly for 10 min. bake ate 350 for (according to the recipe) 20 minutes. it seemed like an awful long time to me, but I set the timer and got distracted. at about minute 18 rob says "is something burning? " and I have a whole cookie sheet full of expensive ingredients that resembles asphalt. so tomorrow breakfast will be something else, and I will have to wait a week until I get more sunflower seeds to make it again--this time for half the bake time, checking it every 5 min. I can't see a way to leave feedback for the recipe where I could caution other people about the incorrect bake time. I know my oven is at the right temp--I check it periodically with a thermometer. so about an hours worth of work and some very expensive ingredients are all wasted--unless by some crazy chance the chickens will eat burnt to a crisp granola.
