Yummy Granola

My mother-in-law is a great cook.  She is often telling me about a good recipe.  She shared this granola recipe with me not too long ago and I love it.  I cooked mine a little long so it is a little brown - but still tastes great.  I liked to mix mine with vanilla yogurt or mix with a few craisins and chocolate chips for a yummy snack.  I haven't tried it yet - but I bet you could substitute coconut sugar for brown sugar and agave nectar for honey.  Who knows - worth a try!

Granola Mix

Preheat over 250 degrees.  Mix together .....

3 cups old fashioned oatmeal
1 cup slivered almonds
1 cup chopped pecans
1/4 c + 2 tbs. dark brown sugar
1/4 c + 2 tbs. honey
1/4 c canola oil
3/4 tsp salt
1 c Craisins (add these AFTER the other ingredients are baked)

Bake 1 hour stirring every 15 mins.

Place on parchment paper to cool. **If you leave it in pan,  it really sticks to pan and hard to get off pan.  I used a baking sheet with sides.
