As to her granola, I think it's overly simple. She might have mentioned that other rolled grains work well for the flakes and that a mix of nuts and seeds can enhance the flavour. I learned the hard way that you shouldn't add dried fruit before you bake it. Burnt dates or raisins are not nice. Granola is good even if you don't add any fruit.
Burnt anything is not nice. Not my favorite food. I had a toaster that would burn one side and no color at all on the other side. That toaster made a quick exit from my home.
