Kelsey's Granola 6 cups oats 3/4 cup honey 1/2 cup canola oil 1/2 tsp salt 1-2 Tbs cinnamon (depending on your preference) 2 Tbs vanilla 1 cup coconut 1 cup craisins, raisins, or other dried fruit 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup almonds (or any other nuts you have) 1/2 cup flax seed or wheat germ (optional~to give it an extra little health kick)
Combine all ingredients in a LARGE bowl. Spray a large cookie sheet with cooking spray and bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown. (I like mine soft and chewy, so I only bake it for 8-10, but if you like it crunchy, it will be more like 15 minutes.)
The great thing about this craft is you can really put anything you want on it!
If you just wanted to make it fall exclusive you could put "Autumn, Harvest, Family" To make it Christmas you could put "Peace, Joy, Love" or for spring you could put different flower names. Click Here for the instruction on how to make the signs
This would be perfect for a party alongside a tray of apples and misc. fruits to dip with. I would love to also try it with gingersnaps or pumpernickel bread!
