Homemade Granola


I just finished a batch of homemade granola. I discovered this recipe at Christmas time and have been making it ever since. It is so much better and cheaper than the store bought kind. We eat if for a snack or put it in vanilla yogurt. It's really, really good.

3 cups oats
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup cashews
1 cup craisins
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Mix the above together in large bowl

1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup brown sugar
Mix these 3 ingredients in a small bowl and heat in microwave for 30 seconds. Pour over oat/nut mixture and mix really good. Spread on large cookie sheet and bake at 250 degrees for 45 minutes or until oats brown. Stir every 15 minutes. Cool and stir frequently while cooling. Enjoy!
