Toasted Coconut Granola

This was a huge FAIL.  I halved the recipe and I think I forgot to half the amount of molasses.  I am not sure, but it was really bad.  It had absolutely no sweetness and was just really disappointing.

I think I will try it again some time.  I really like coconut and nuts and cinnamon.  Oh well, another day!  I am going to leave the original recipe without my failed math, assuming that was my problem.
