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
-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!
