if you toast regular oats (not instand) it's alot better for recipes like this. granola is already covered in sugar and is high calorie, it'll cut the sweetness which you really dont need since this has marshmallow in it already, and will cut calories and added fat since alot of granola also uses a good amount of oil.

its pretty hard to take any recipe serious especially coming from a a fitness magazine when margarine is still an ingredient for a fat.
