For a shortcut, you can use three cups store-bought granola, and stir in the spices and molasses. Bake for five minutes instead of 25 to get a similar result. Look for granola with a small list of good quality ingredients, preferably without cane sugar. This dish is very impressive served at a brunch gathering, and can be prepared in advance. Just add the granola on at the last minute to prevent it from getting soggy.
