granolaI found this recipe for granola on a friend’s blog, thank you!  I made a great big double-batch of this in the spring, April maybe, and we’ve been enjoying it every since.  But we’re running low and soon we’ll be in need of more.  Hopefully in the next week or two I can make another batch.  I also want to give these granola bars a try too.


8 c. rolled oats
4 c. nuts or seeds (We used almonds, some chopped some whole, and sunflower seeds)
3/4 c. honey
1/4 c. oil
cinnamon and vanilla

Mix above ingredients in a large bowl (warm the honey and oil in the microwave first). Spread evenly on a cookie sheet and bake for 30-45 minutes at 325, checking/stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from oven when golden brown. While still warm, stir in:

1 c. dried fruit (We just did dried cranberries, but I’d like to try raisins and apricots too)
