I have been making granola for a while now and it is so easy to do you will wonder why you ever bought it at the store. Granola is a perfect breakfast food. It is healthy, convenient and kids love it! Here is my recipe:
You need: 3 cups dry oatmeal
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup honey
a dash of salt
a splash of vanilla
several shakes of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
1/2---3/4 cup sliced almonds
Start out by melting the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the honey, salt, vanilla, and cinnamon. Stir together. Turn off the heat and take pan off the burner. Add your oatmeal and almonds then toss all together to coat. Spread mixture evenly onto a cookie sheet and bake at 375 for ten minutes. Stir so untoasted oatmeal is on top and then bake for 5 more minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool. Store in an airtight container.
Enjoy with yogurt, fruit or pour it in a bowl and add milk. Feel free to experiment and add the ingredients and flavors that are tasty to your family. Yum!
