Granola

This is my all time favorite, hands down, the best granola ever!  

This is my basic recipe and I add several cups of add-ins with each batch, so it’s always a little bit different depending on my mood.

Granola

1 C butter
1 C honey
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
9 C oats
2 tsp vanilla, optional
3-4 C add-ins (raisins, sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, chocolate chips, almonds, etc.)

In a large dutch oven pot, melt the butter.  Stir in the honey and let it simmer 2-3 minutes, stirring it so it will not burn.  Stir in the vanilla (if desired).  

Mix in the remaining ingredients, except the add-ins.  

Granola

Spread onto a large baking sheet that has a lip.  Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.  Stir and allow to cool

When granola is completely cooled, stir in the add-ins.  This time we used 1 C sunflower seeds, 1 C golden raisins, and 1 C regular raisins.

Store in an airtight container.

Our favorite way to eat granola is over plain yogurt with a little bit of maple syrup.  Oh!  That’s some amazing eating!  We also like to put it on top of cereal.

  1. We LOVE granola around here! Our now 11 yr is the official granola maker, he’s awesome at it! We add ground flax to ours (nobody can tell=bonus) and some batches get roughly chopped nuts in it for those that can eat them! Yum!
