Homemade Granola: Easy to Make - Try It!

 I love homemade granola, made just how I like it.  I get to choose what it is in it and only the things I want.  Personalized granola - it's my kind of thing.  I made up this recipe recently and hope you will enjoy it as well.  


3 cups rolled oats

1/2 teaspoon salt

2/3 chopped nuts of your choice:  almonds, walnuts, cashews, pecans, etc.  You can also add sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds or coconut.

1/3 cup oil

1/4 cup brown sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla

1/2 cup honey

2/3 cup dried fruit, if desired, to be added after it cooks

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix oats, salt and nuts together in a bowl.

In a small pan, warm up the oil, brown sugar, vanilla and honey slightly.

Pour oil and honey mixture over the oat mixture.

Stir together.

Put a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet and spread the oat mixture on it.

Bake at 350 for about 14-16 minutes, stirring once half way through the time period so the granola will cook evenly.  

Take the granola out of the oven and add dried fruit, if desired.  Mix together well.  Let the granola cool and then put it into a container.
