Vanilla - Almond Granola
4 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup slivered almonds
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cinnamon (or to taste)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
2 Tablespoons sugar
4 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract
The 1st thing you will do is to line a large baking sheet with foil. This makes clean up soooo easy :) Then in a large bowl you will mix together the oats, almonds, brown sugar, salt & cinnamon.
Then in a sauce pan combine the oil, honey & sugar....bring to a simmer over medium heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Take off of the heat and stir in the Vanilla.
Then pour the hot liquid over the oat mix - stir well - using your hands to toss once it's cool enough to touch.
Then spread the granola on the foil lined baking sheet and bake @ 300 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. Stirring occasionally while baking.
Cool before storing....try not to eat it all when it's hot out of the oven.
I love to sprinkle this over vanilla yogurt.
