Homemade Granola

Adapted this recipe from Owlhaven she's the one who wrote the book Family Feasts for $75 a week

Total prep time: 30 minutes

Makes: 16 cups of cereal

In a very large bowl combine:

•9 c. oats
•1 T. cinnamon
•3 c. “goodies”– nuts, raisins, sunflower seeds, coconut, and dried fruit all work well. (I used raisins, almonds, and pecans)
Mix well.

In glass measuring cup pour:

•3/4 c. oil
•3/4 c. honey
Be sure to pour the oil in first. This will allow the honey to easily release from the cup. Heat oil and honey in microwave on high for a 2-4 minutes, until hot. Pour honey and oil over dry ingredients. Mix well.Spread onto 2 or 3 large greased cookie sheets and bake at 325 degrees till light to medium brown, 15-25 minutes. Cool and store in sealed plastic containers or ziplocks. It rarely lasts more than 3 days at our house. If your family doesn’t eat it that fast, you can store half in the freezer until you need it.
