This simple granola recipes is one of my current GO TO big batch breakfast cooking meals and was given to me from one of my favorite women, the Architect's Wife. She is a woman of extraordinary hospitality and kindness and uses her kitchen as a means of ministry. She has given me permission to pass along her tasty treat to you. I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine!
*Because of the size of my family, I typically triple the recipe. But even then, it doesn't last for very long in my house! Be ready to file this under "family fave!"
I use this granola in homemade yogurt parfaits, on top of fruit for an afternoon snack, or with milk for a healthier breakfast cereal option.
Preheat oven to 325˚. Mix oats, salt, and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
In a separate bowl, whisk together oil, honey, brown sugar, and vanilla until completely combined.
Pour wet honey mix over dry oat mix and stir. Use your hands to combine evenly.
Spread oat mixture onto a large cookie sheet or jelly roll pan, leaving a few chunks for texture.
Bake for 10 minutes. Use a spatula to flip the oat mix. Top with nuts and return to the oven.
Bake for five more minutes and flip again. Bake once more for five more minutes until golden brown.
Cool completely on wax paper. Sprinkle any fruit ad-ins on top and ENJOY!
