I cook. I haven't always enjoyed it and still don't enjoy a lot of cooking but I have a few things I do like to do. Granola is one of them.
|Six cups of regular rolled oats|
|2 tsp, cinnamon and vanilla, 1 tsp salt, diced walnuts to taste|
|2/3 cups local honey, 1/4 cups neutral oil|
|1 cup currants -- more or less to taste or you can use raisins|
|All mixed up and spread on cookie sheet to cook|
Ok, you mix everything together except the currants (or raisins), spread in a thin layer on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for.....well, that is a tricky question. I have tried timing it but it messes up on a regular basis so my advice would be to WATCH it. It burns easily because of the honey so just watch it until you get it browned to your satisfaction.
After it cools add the currants or raisins and stir.
Sometimes, when I can find it, I add a cup or two of shredded, unsweetened coconut before I bake it. It adds a little texture but, being unsweetened, it doesn't make it overly sweet.
I store it in a glass jar and there you have it.
