While my Mom was here taking care of us once we all got back from the hospital she spent lots of time in the kitchen. We pretty much devoured everything she made. We especially loved her home made granola. I just made a batch and had to document it. Thanks Mom, we love it!

Connie and Dale Moore's Homemade Granola
8 cups old-fashioned oats
3 cup sliced almonds (or any combo including walnuts & pecans)
4 tbs of flax seed (we’ve switched to ground flax seed)
1 cup packed light brown sugar (or 1/2 C for fewer calories)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup honey
2 teaspoon vanilla
3 cup raisins or dried cranberries (Connie likes Craisins.)

1. Preheat oven to 300 F.
2. In a saucepan warm the oil and honey, then whisk in vanilla. (Dale discovered you can heat both oil and honey in a bowl in the microwave for 2 minutes.)
3. In a bowl mix the oats, almonds, brown sugar, flax seed, salt and cinnamon.
4. Carefully pour the liquid over the oat mixture. Stir gently; finish mixing by hand.
5.Spread granola in 2 15x10 inch cookie tray.
6.Bake 40 minutes, stirring carefully every 10 minutes.
7.Transfer granola-filled pan to a rack to cool completely. Stir in raisins or cranberries. Seal granola in an airtight container or self-sealing plastic bag. Store at room temperature for 1 week or in the freezer for 3 months.
