I thought I would post this recipe so everyone who ask me for the recipe can just come on here and get it. We just adopted a Soldier so I will be doing a lot of baking this week to send off to him Monday and Granola is one of the many things I will be making.

Preheat oven to 250

3 Cups Oatmeal

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 C wheat flour

3/4 C brown Sugar

1/4 cup water

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 C Oil

Mix oats, flour and salt into 9x13" pan, combine sugar and water in sauce pan, boil for one minute. Turn off heat, add vaanilla na doil to sugar water mixture, stir well to combine. Pour over oat mixture and stir well. Spread oat mixture evenly into pan, do not pack down.Bake for two hours, stir ever 30 minutes. cool and break up oats to the desire size. I stir it up while it is hot because I like them very small for my yogurt.Now for this recipe you see I added macadamia nuts, dried pineapple I cut up small, shaved unsweetened coconut and Banana chips. I added the nuts the last hour of the baking time so they could be crunchy.

I will not stir it while it cools this way it will be in large chunks for them.

Once I find my other recipe I will post it, it is a fruit one with dried blueberries,cranberries and pecans.
