Homemade Granola


Our family loves granola.  We make a new batch about 2 times a month…and it’s not a small batch.  There’s lots of granola recipes out there.  I’ve tried a bunch.  This one just happens to be the easiest.  I’ll probably post later on some others that I love because they cluster or the flavors, but for an everyday easy and delicious granola, this is it!  It takes about 5 minutes to mix up – about the amount of time to heat up the oven.  Then it cooks for about an hour.  Done!

Homemade granola


7 cups old-fashioned oats

1 cup crisp rice cereal

1 Tablespoon cinnamon (plus other spices as you choose: ginger, cloves, nutmeg, etc.)

3/4 cup honey

3/4 cup maple syrup

1 Tablespoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 275.

Mix together dry ingredients in one bowl, wet in another.  Stir the 2 together until well coated.

Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.  Bake about 45 minutes, stirring once (about 20 minutes in).  If you bake it longer, it gets crunchier and darker.
