ingredients

4 cups old-fashioned oats
1 1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries

directions

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

In a bowl mix the oats, almonds, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon. In a saucepan warm the oil and honey. Whisk in vanilla.

Carefully pour the liquid over the oat mixture. Stir gently with a wooden spoon; finish mixing by hand. Spread granola in a 15x10 inch baking pan.

Bake 40 minutes, stirring carefully every 10 minutes. Transfer granola-filled pan to a rack to cool completely. Stir in raisins or cranberries. Seal granola in an airtight container or self-sealing plastic bag. Store at room temperature for 1 week or in the freezer for 3 months.

Homemade Granola is perfect for yogurt toppings and to toss in cereal! Better yet its easy to make. I think the brown sugar is what really brings out the flavor and I would add a touch more to it. You also have your choice of raisins or cranberries (or use a combo or tried other dried fruit like dried cherries)

This homemade granola is a delicious way to eat healthy on the go! For a faster cooling time, put the granola pan in the refrigerator. I'd recommend using cranberries instead of raisins for the perfect balance of tart and sweet!

Super easy and delicious. I've been making this recipe for several years and have shared it with many people. All positive feedback. Goes great on yogurt, as a cereal or just a simple snack.

This is the 1st granola recipe I have made & I love it! So easy & fast & delicious! My husband is always looking for the 'perfect' granola & he said he's found it! I actually omit the brown sugar & add in about 1/2cup of sweetened coconut. I also add roasted pumpkin & sunflower seeds after it has finished baking.

Awesome recipe! We replaced one cup of the raisins/cranberries and added a diced apple after the first 10 minutes of baking. We love it and will eat as a morning breakfast cereal with milk. Would like to add some flaxseed on our next batch!

Great recipe....then I played with it. I used honey and coconut oil, and my own candied walnuts as well! Really Yummo!

Great basic granola recipe. As comments mention, it can be tweaked to suit different tastes. My only problem, if you want to call it a problem, is I thought it was a little too sweet. I'll cut down on the sugar next time. Thanks!

So easy, my two year old helped make it. We added some cocoa powder to the mix and it was perfectly sweet without adding more sugar. New family fave.
