Best Ever Granola

I love love love love love love granola.

This is by far THE BEST granola recipe I have ever encountered! 

It is the perfect combination of sweet and salty. So much flavor is happening in your mouth, its just to die for!

Best Ever Granola
(Serves 6ish)

-2 Cups Oats
-1/2 Tsp. salt
-1/4- 1/2 Cup of either wheat germ, coconut, or chopped nuts.

-1/4-1/2 Cup honey
-1/4 Cup oil
-1 Tsp. extract (vanilla, almond, orange, maple etc...)

To add in at the end:
-Mix in's: dried cherries, cranberries, raisins, chocolate chunks

Combine everything very well.

Spread onto a greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 325, stirring every 10 minutes until golden. Usually you only need to stir it twice. It might not look done, but granola I find can be deceiving...It crisps up as it cools.
While it is cooling, add 1/2 cup of dried fruit.

Mix in 1 cup of this trail mix when it is cooled:

This is what makes it OUT OF THIS WORLD. Trust me and do it.

Give everything a good stir, and store in a zip lock bag!
