Two of my sister-in-laws have had homemade granola on hand for quite some time. I've always enjoyed it so I finally started making my own. I kind of combined the components that I like from both of theirs into this one.
This is good granola. When I'm really watching what I eat, I pound this stuff. When I'm not watching so well, I really pound it. Enjoy!
- 4 1/2 c. whole oats
- 1 c. bran flakes
- 1 c. rice krispies
- 2 c. nuts, seeds, etc (you can add more bran flakes, rice krispies, etc)
- 1 c. coconut
- 1 c. brown sugar
- 1/2 c. honey (I use mostly Agave nectar)
- 1/4 c. water
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
Bake at 275 for 20 min. Rotate racks and bake an additional 15-18 min.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and allow to cool. If you like crumbs, fluff with fork before it cools, if you like it chunky, let it cool first.
