Yummy Granola from my kitchen.

I always had thoughts of making granola, but the recipes I found seemed too complicated. Then my mother-in-law put a recipe in front of me that was easy to make. So I tried it: and loved it. The flavor is spot-on and the recipe simple and unassuming. It is a granola my children would be willing to try, in part because it is not overdone or filled with too many unknowns.

4 cups oats 1
1/2 cups sliced almonds

1/2 cup brown sugar

pinch salt

pinch cinnamon

1/4 cup honey

1/4 cup oil

2 tsp vanilla

optional: raisins, dried cranberries/cherries/blueberries/apple

Oven to 300 degrees. In large bowl mix first five ingredients. In a small bowl, blend honey, oil and vanilla. Pour over dry ingredients and stir to blend. Spread in big pan and place in oven for 40 minutes. Stir occasionally. Keeps for a week sealed at room temp, or frozen up to 3 months.

I enjoy eating homemade granola, and my family does too - now you've inspired me to make a batch.

Isn't it strange that granola is chic now? I see fancy bags in gourmet grocery stores for 10 bucks a bag!

Hmmm, now there's a business idea...
