Granola (Easy)

  • 4 C rolled oats (not quick oats)
  • 1/2 C brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1 C unsalted, chopped nuts (optional)

  • 1/4 C canola oil
  • 1/4 C honey
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla

  • 1 C raisins or other dried fruit (optional)

Preheat oven to 325.

In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and nuts. Pour oil, honey and vanilla into a small saucepan over medium heat; stir until combined.

Pour liquid mixture over oat mixture; stir until dry ingredients are coated. Spread granola evenly on a cookie sheet and bake 30-40 minutes until golden brown, stirring every 10-15 minutes to prevent burning.

Remove from oven and cool completely. Add dried fruit, if desired, and store in an airtight container. Serving size: 1/4 cup.
