I had some extra energy last night and decided to make a big batch of granola. I do lots of things with this granola... eat it with milk, make muffins with it, make cookies with it, it is very versatile and very easy to make.
6 Tbs. Canola Oil
6 Tbs. Honey
1/2 tsp. almond extract (you could also use vanilla or you could leave it out completely)
4 Cups Rolled oats
6 Tbs. Dried Milk
1/2 Cup coconut (more or less to taste)
1/2 Cup Almonds (flaked, slivered, or substitute another nut or dried fruit)
Mix the first 3 ingredients together in a larger bowl. Add the next 3 ingredients and mix well.
Spread the mixture onto an un-greased jelly roll pan and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Stir once during baking.
Remove pan from oven. Mix in almonds and return to oven for another 3-5 minutes to toast.
Cool and serve.
