Busy weekend = super late Monday post this week
HOWEVER, I made up for it with this gem of a recipe for you!
A woman I work with made honey nut granola for a staff breakfast and pretty much everyone who ate it asked for the recipe. She got so sick of people asking her that she posted in on the private server for all staff to see it. It's delicious and so easy! I made it last evening and decided to share the secret to the best granola ever! Here's the recipe:
2 1/2 cups of old fashioned oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup nuts (I use chopped pecans)
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup melted butter
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup raisins (optional--I don't use them)
Combine all ingredients except raisins. Bake in lightly greased 13x9 pan at 325 degrees for 20-25 minutes stirring occasionally. Stir in raisins (or not). Stir after out of the oven for about 15 minutes.
Here's what you'll need:
Pile everything in the baking pan and mix it up!
After 20 minutes, voila. Delicious, sweet honey nut granola.
Enjoy with your favorite yogurt and fresh fruit!
