Instructions
  1. I love this recipe because it’s versatile. Substitutions are no big deal. I’ve done half rolled oats and half quick oats. I’ve done all quick oats. I’ve replaced cashews with walnuts. There is a huge amount of room for creativity. Dried cranberries, raisins or apples work great for fruit but pick what sounds good to you. Mix everything together in a large bowl.
  2. Select two large baking sheets with sides. Cover with oven-safe parchment paper or grease with butter or cooking spray. Spread a thin layer of the granola mixture across them.
  3. Bake at 300 degrees for one to one and a half hours. Check every thirty minutes and stir the mixture. Rotate the placement of the sheets in the oven to help the granola bake evenly. If the granola begins to turn slightly brown, take it out immediately and let cool. Avoid browning. It doesn’t taste as good.
  4. Serve warm or cool. Mix with yogurt or ice cream for a tasty summer snack. Mix with Rice Krispies or other cheap cereal to make it go further. Store in dry, cool area. Large storage container.
