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!
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.
