Easy Granola

Keeping this Granola well stocked in my house is pretty impossible!! I double the batch and it lasts oh about 1-2 days!!! Not kidding. Good thing it is easy to make. My 8 and 9 year old girls can make it. There are so many different varieties to this, this is just how I make it for my family. Okay, so this is what you will need:

Just a quick note: When I first got married, ( 19 years ago) I didn't really know much about cooking, so I would call my grandma and ask her how much of this ingredient or that ingredient to put in a recipe and she would always reply," Oh I don't know I just put a little of this or a squeeze of that." So, with that said, that is kinda how I cook now, unless I'm baking. So I will do my best with measurements on this

21/2 to 3 Cups Quaker Oats
1/3 Cup Chopped Almonds
1/4 tsp salt
1Tbsp vanilla
1/3 Cup Honey
1/4 Cup maple syrup
1/4 Cup Vegetable oil
cinnamon add as much or as little as you want
chocolate chips

Put all in bowl except cranberries and chocolate chips

Mix and spread on a cookie sheet, sprayed with cooking spray and bake at 350 for 20 minutes. You may want to stir it up a bit in between the 20 min.

I like mine a little more crunchy, so I cook mine a little longer, I just keep an eye on it.

Let cool completely before adding the cranberries and chocolate chips!! Then, you gotta put in a pretty jar! Right?

 Enjoy!!! Great with yogurt! Do you have a favorite granola recipe? Please share.
