Creative Kitchen: Homemade Granola


My sister put this recipe together for me to share, thanks Kat!


Homemade Granola
Granola is a great to mix in yogurt or just snack on.  This homemade recipe is good for you and much more yummy than store-bought granola!

You need: 
  • 3 cups rolled oats*      
  • 1 cup sliced almonds* 
  • 1 cup chopped pecans* 
  • 1 cup dried fruit (I use cranberries, but you could use raisins, blueberries, etc.)*
  • 1/2 cup shelled sunflower seeds*
  • 1/3 cup canola oil      
  •  1/2 cup honey  
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
    *Note: If you go to a store that sells nuts, oats, and dried fruit from dispensers (e.g. Whole Foods), then you won’t have to buy more than you need. 


    Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

    Stir together oats, nuts and dried fruit in large bowl.
