Homemade Granola

The Gourmet Farm Girl

I love granola; I like to warm it with some milk or eat it as a snack or better yet mix with some yogurt…
Being the dairy girl that I am…my recipe calls for butter instead of oil, it does have some sugar but the rest just moooos… Healthy!
 Kids would like to help make this one!
  This is so easy and very yummy…I like to eat it when it’s warm right out of the oven. It’s full of good things from the nuts and the flax seeds to the whole grain of the oats!

3 cup rolled oats (regular)
1 cup chopped almonds

1 cup chopped pecans
½ cup flax seed
½ cup raisins
¼ cup + 2 T brown sugar
¼ cup honey + 2 Tablespoons

¼ cup melted unsalted butter
¾ t salt

Pre-heat oven to 250 or 200 on a convection oven

In a large bowl mix the oats, nuts, flax seed and raisins

In a smaller mixing bowl mix the melted butter with the honey and salt; pour into dry mixture and stir with a large spoon till coated


Spread on two baking sheets with edges and bake for 15 minutes at a time; stir and repeat for 1 hour 15 minutes
Let cool and store in an airtight container for 3-4 days…or refrigerate for 5-7 days
