Brown Sugar Granola

I am finally posting the recipe for the granola that we eat every week. It is easy to make and takes about 15 minutes from start to finish. A favorite.

It's like a favorite shade or color of find a one that you like, your sold. You will buy it again, again, and again!! A repeat customer!

I make a big batch of this granola about once every 2 weeks. We eat it with milk, yogurt, and applesauce. Bake with it too. (granola bars)

Brown Sugar Granola

Here is our "staple"...

In a large mixing bowl, add oats and cinnamon. Mix well. Set aside.

Now, in small sauce pan, melt butter, brown sugar and water. (Make sure your brown sugar is packed. If your sugar slides out of your measuring cup in huge chunk, then you know you packed it.)

Let simmer for 2-3 minutes.

Add to oats and stir until all the oats are "wet" looking.

Dump oat mixture into rimmed baking sheet. (cookie sheet)

Bake at 375 for 5 minutes. Stir or flip oats and return to oven for additional 5 minutes.

Let cool and add dried fruit. Transfer to an air tight container.

Brown Sugar Granola

Recipe from Finding Joy in My Kitchen

2 T butter
1 C brown sugar, packed
1/4 C water
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
7-8 C Old Fashion Oats
Dried fruit, etc.

Melt butter, brown sugar and water together in a pan over medium heat. Stir well, and allow mixture to simmer for 2-3 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine oats and cinnamon. Add brown sugar mixture to the oats and stir well. You want all the oats to look a little wet. Dump oat mixture onto a rimmed cookie sheet. Bake for 5 minutes at 375. Take oats out of the oven and gently stir/ toss/ flip oats. Bake for additional 5 minutes. Let cool completely and add dried fruit of your choice. We use raisins and craisins.

Store in air tight container.
