Basic Ingredients (can be modified to your tastes) 

  • 3 cups Quaker Old-Fashioned Oats
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts, pecans or whichever you prefer

  • 1/3 cup honey (if you like)
  • 2 tablespoons or more of sunflower oil
  • 1 cup of assorted dried fruit (optional)

 

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 300° F.
  • Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment
  • Mix ingredients in large bowl
  • Stir honey and oil in small saucepan over low heat for just a minute or two until smooth.
  • Use a rubber scraper to pour the honey mixture over the oat mixture; toss.
  • Spread on prepared sheet.
  • Bake until golden brown or more if you prefer
  • Watch carefully to see how quickly it bakes in your oven.
  • The granola will be done in 20-25 minutes or maybe longer depending on the baking sheet and your oven. 

Place sheet on rack. Stir granola. Cool completely.  Store in a cool dry place.

You can mix in fruit now or as you serve it.  You can carry it on the go or have it for a small meal. If you like mix it in with some yogurt.  You can give it as a gift to show that you took time to create something you like for someone you love.  Enjoy!!!

Store in an airtight container. Enjoy.
