Our Favorite Granola Recipe

My kids would rather eat this than regular cereal. This delicious granola recipe is so much softer than a store bought one.
I love that it will fill my house with sublime scents while it cooks today!
Since we love eating {This Little Project} I'll share it with you :)

Thanks to my sister for this delicious recipe:

6 cups oats (use the regular, not quick-cooking since they are better for you :)
1 cup flour (whole wheat if you have it)
1-2 Tablespoon Cinnamon
1 Tablespoon cloves or nutmeg

2 cups of "fun stuff" I use whatever I have on hand. Here are some things we put in ours:
raisens
craisens
sunflower seeds
coconut
dried banana chips (broken up a little)
dried apples
dried pineapple
etc.-you can use any other dried fruit on hand

add:
1 cup water
1 cup cooking oil
1/2 cup honey

Stir together in a large bowl. It will have the consistency similar to oatmeal cookies.
Grease a jelly roll pan (or cookie sheet) and spread the granola out on the pan. You want to pack the granola together a little bit. It will cook best that way and won't dry out. Just use the bottom of your spoon to smooth it together and fill any holes.

Cook at 300 degrees for 60 minutes. Don't overcook or it will be a harder granola.

When cooled, lift it from the pan with a spatula. Use your hands to break it into bite-size pieces and put it in a container. Right now I just use a gallons-size ziplock bag with a 1/3 measuring cup in it to scoop it out with. It makes just the right size for that. This recipe lasts us about a week.
ENJOY This YUMMY {Little Project} with milk or yogurt :)
