Homemade Granola:

4 c. quick cooking oats

1 1/2 c. chopped unsalted almonds

1/4 c. grape seed oil or light olive oil

1/2 c. honey

1/4 c. brown sugar

1 t. cinnamon

1/2 t. salt

1 c. dried cranberries or raisins

Preheat oven to 300. In a large bowl combine all the ingredients except the cranberries. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and pour granola mixture on sheet. Bake for 45 – 50 minutes, checking every 15 minutes to stir the granola. The cinnamon and oats will fill your kitchen with such an amazing aroma! Once the granola is lightly browned, remove from oven and cool. Add cranberries or raisins and store in an air tight container. Great with milk, yogurt or just plain!
