Description

This is a recipe from my cousin’s wife. Big time breakfast comfort food.

Ingredients

  • 13 cups Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1-½ cup Chopped Nuts (1/2 Pecans, 1/2 Almonds)
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Honey
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Preparation

Preheat oven to 300°

In a large bowl combine the old-fashioned oats and the chopped nuts (I used half almonds, half pecans.) You can also add 1 cup of Sunflower seeds if you would like.

In another microwave safe bowl combine the remaining ingredients and stir together well. Throw this mixture into the microwave for about 2 minutes on high. Give it another good stir when you remove it then pour it over the oat mixture, stirring it really well until all of the oats are coated nicely.

Now spread the goods onto 2 large baking sheets (line with parchment paper if you have it) and place in a preheated 300° oven for 1 hour.

At the half-way point switch the pans top to bottom and give the granola a stir. Remove from oven when the hour is up. Your olfactory glands will be ready to jump out of your face and dive into the oven before the granola is ready. Please don’t let them do that. Not only would it ruin the eating experience, it will probably ruin your life in the end. Keep them at bay if possible.

But oh I do love to eat the granola when it’s still warm. The angels and birds and cherubs seem to sing and play at higher decibels when it’s still warm. Could just be my olfactory glands making all that noise though. I haven’t scientifically tested this.

This granola is especially delicious when accompanied by homemade yogurt.

I’m so glad you liked it! Yes… a pretty darn LARGE bowl is indeed needed! :^D

I got the urge to make homemade granola after watching the episode of Jon & Kate where Emeril comes over to make dinner (and he makes homemade granola). So, while my girls were napping one Saturday afternoon, I tried out your recipe. Super easy, and it really did make the kitchen smell so good. When you say mix everything together in a large bowl, what you really mean is a LARGE bowl! Okay…so some of my granola went overboard and onto the floor, but I’ll have a better idea of the quantity next time. Anyway…after naptime, both my girls (3 and 1/2) AND my huband ate some granola. Food that pleases all 4 of our palates is sometimes hard to find! We have been enjoying it with milk (like cereal), with yogurt, and mixed in to pancakes. So fun, and so good! Thanks for your recipe!
