We eat it on yogurt, or as cereal... or just plain, actually -- it makes a great snack!!
5 cups of quick oats -- OK -- so I use the old fashioned oats I get from the co-op
1/2 c dry milk
cinnamon - I put tons on
3/4 c brown sugar
1/3 c EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
1/3 c honey
You can add almonds or nuts of your choice, or dry fruit, or flax seed. I had nothing exrra -- so I added nothing. OK -- so I had flax seed, but I was too lazy to grind them.
In a baking pan, mix oats, dry milk, cinnamon, nuts or flax seed, if you choose.
In saucepan mix brown sugar, EVOO and honey. Bring to a boil, pour over dry mixture, stir well.
Then bake in 350° over for 20-25 minutes ( or longer). Stirring about every 5 minutes. To help me with this -- since I am easily distracted... I use 2 timers. Yes I do too.... quit laughing - but my granola doesn't get burned that way... so there.
Take out of oven add dry fruit pour out unto waxed paper then cool. . Store in airtight container.
It will take about 20 minutes to crunch up... but it will. Don't eat it all while it's gooey -- it's even better crunchy. LOL
So -- now tell me how you use granola? Do you make your own? What do you add to it?
ENJOY!! We love this recipe and hope you will too.
