Vanilla-Scented Granola

This granola’s so good Hubby eats it with yogurt for breakfast everyday! I’ve found making a quadruple batch lasts us about 2 weeks.

Vanilla-Scented Granola


Nonstick vegetable oil spray (for baking sheet)

4 cups old fashioned oats

1 cup sliced almonds

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 tsp salt

1/8 tsp ground cinnamon

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup honey or real maple syrup

4 tsp vanilla extract


Combine oats, almonds, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon in a bowl.

Place the oil and honey/maple syrup on the stove and bring to a simmer on medium heat.

Remove the oil mixture from heat and add vanilla.

Pour over the oats mixture and stir until oats are fully coated.

Bake at 325-350*F until golden brown, stirring every 6-7 minutes, for about 30 minutes.

Cool granola completely and store in an airtight container at room temperature.

Can be stored for up to 2 weeks.
