My wonderful friend, previous supervisor, fellow speech therapist, and fellow blogger (check her out here) gave me some homemade granola for Christmas and I'm here to tell you it was hands down the best I have ever tasted. She was kind enough to share her recipe with me and I thought I would pass it along. Please visit her blog and read about her upcoming trip to Zambia.
1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
2. In a large bowl, mix...
-4 cups oats
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp cinnamon
-1/3 cup brown sugar
-This is also where you can add nuts or flax seed if you are into that kind of thing.
3. Over medium heat, heat:
-1/4 cup canola (vegetable oil works too)
-1/4 cup honey
-A dash of vanilla
4. Mix all together.
5. Spray 2 cookie sheets with nonstick spray. Spread granola over 2 pans in thin layer.
6. Cook for 30-40 minutes until golden and crisp, stirring every 10 minutes. This is especially important to keep an eye on, as the edges can burn quickly.
7. Remove from oven and add a few handfuls of Craisens and mix together.
