I love homemade granola. It is especially good sprinkled on yogurt. My kids just like to snack on it by itself.

4 C large rolled oats
1 C sliced almonds
1/2 C brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 C oil
1/4 C honey
1 tsp vanilla
1 C Craisins

Mix the dry ingredients together. I use a roasting pan, sprayed with cooking spray. You can really use any style pan, but make sure it is at least as big as
9 X 13.

Warm the honey and oil in a saucepan. Once the honey is melted and thin, add in the vanilla. Pour over dry ingredients. Mix together.

Bake at 275 degrees for 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. I like to add a 1/2 cup or so of coconut during the last 10 minutes of cooking just because I really like it. it will get too browned if you put it in at the beginning.

Spread it out and let it cool completely. Add Craisins if desired. Store in an airtight container.

    I like the idea of coconut in the end. Sounds yummy. I am going to put dried blueberries in it, too!!!
