You all know how much I LOVE homemade granola! Especially since I am pregnant, it has become my new favorite snack! I have been making my grandma's Homemade Granola for quite some time but decided to try out another recipe. This one was just as wonderful so I thought I would share it with you as well. You will not be disappointed with either recipe.
Vegetable cooking spray
4 cups old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup almonds, chopped
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1/3 cup dried cranberries, chopped
1/3 cup raisins, chopped
1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1/3 cup wheat germ (mainly just because it is so good for you)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, stir together oats, almonds, pecans, cranberries, raisins, wheat germ, coconut, cinnamon, and salt.
3. In a small saucepan, combine oil, honey, and sugar. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Stir in vanilla.
4. Drizzle syrup over oat mixture; toss with a wooden spoon. Pour granola onto sheet pan and spread evenly. Bake, stirring occasionally until golden (about 25 minutes). Let granola cool completely before storing it in an air tight container.
