My husband loves granola, so I set out to make some since its so expensive to buy. I took the best from several recipes. He eats his on yogurt every morning for breakfast.

Cook:

1 Hr 15 Min

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

2 1/2 c
oats, old fashioned
2/3 c
all purpose flour
1/2 c
brown sugar, firmly packed, light
1/3 c
almonds, sliced
2 tsp
cinnamon
1/2 tsp
nutmeg
1/2 c
butter (1 stick)
1/2 c
honey
1/3 c
peanut butter, optional
1 tsp
pure vanilla extract

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 250 degrees
2
Spray a 15X10 baking sheet (jelly roll pan) with nonstick cooking spray
3
In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients, oats, flour, brown sugar, almond slices, cinnamon, and nutmeg
4
In a microwave safe bowl combine wet ingredients, honey, butter, peanut butter (if using) and microwave until butter is melted. Stir and then add vanilla.
5
Pour melted mixture over oat mixture, stir well
6
Spread into your baking dish and make sure it is spread out well.
7
Bake for 70-75 minutes, stir or flip half way through. Towards the end it will smell a little too done but mine has always been fine.
8
When its finished it will still be a little soft, stir and break it up a couple times as its cooling and it will crisp up. I store mine in a gallon size Ziploc bag but any air tight container will work.
You can add dried fruit at this point as you are mixing it up!
