Preparation

  1. Pre-heat oven to 300.
  2. Add dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
  3. Melt together the wet ingredients using a microwave or a pot (we don't have a microwave so I do it on the stove), mix well.
  4. Once melted, pour the wet mixture over the dry mixture and mix well.
  5. Spray a large baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  6. Spread granola mixture in a layer over the entire sheet.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes, then stir/flip with a spatula.
  8. Return to the oven and bake 15 to 20 minutes more until light golden.
  9. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  10. Stir while cooling based on how chunky you like your granola - if you like bigger chunks, don't stir it a lot (just remember you've got to transfer it to a container).
  11. I store mine in the jar shown above, I believe it is airtight, but we eat the granola so fast it probably doesn't matter!
  12. Makes about 5 cups.
