Granola my Heart

By Geekmom

The amazing K.A. Stewart requested this and I must do as she wants. I know I have not been blogging lately, but perhaps with eldest ninja monkey going to college in a few weeks I will have a bit more time to get back to this. As it is, I feel very guilty. Grrr.

I found this recipe through searching on the web. It is always a fun thing to do.

Simple Granola

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup canola oil
4 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt

1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
2. Combine brown sugar, honey and canola oil in a small sauce pan over medium heat.
3. Cook, stirring often until sugar is dissolved.
4. Pour brown sugar mixture over oats and add cinnamon and salt. Stir until oats are evenly coated.
5. Spread granola mixture over a cookie sheet (sprayed with pam) and press mixture down.
6. Place in oven and bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15-20 minutes.
7. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before breaking apart and into pieces.
8. Store in a ziplock bag or other air tight container.

Enjoy as a snack by the handful, on top of yogurt, or with milk!
