Honey Roasted Granola

23 May

I never thought making granola would be so easy!

quick cooking oats
honey
canola, coconut or olive oil
ground cinnamon 

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.

Put the oats in a bowl.

Drizzle with a little of the oil and mix to coat.

Add as much honey to coat the oats.  Taste it to see if the oats are sweet enough, if not you can add a little sugar.

Spread the mixture on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Cook for about 15 minutes, then mix and cook another 15 minutes (or until slightly browned).

**When you take it out of the oven the oats will still feel soft and sticky, but when they cool it will harden to a granola texture.

While still soft, sprinkle with the cinnamon.

Let cool.  Then add in your mix-ins (like chopped almonds, dried fruits, seeds, flaxseed, chia seeds, etc…).

Store in an air-tight jar.
