Honey Vanilla Crunch Granola
This is my mom's granola recipe- I think I will make it today. Yummy breakfast!
4 cups old-fashioned (rolled) oats
1 cup wheat bran
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup canola oil, plus additional for greasing the pan
2 tablespoons 2% reduced-fat mild
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 325F. Lightly oil a large, rimmed baking sheet
2. Combine oats, wheat bran, coconut, walnuts, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl; stir well.
3. Stir honey, oil, milk and vanilla in a small saucepan over low heat until mixture fizzes around the edges. Pour over oat mixture and stir well.
4. Spread onto prepared baking sheet. Bake about 25 minutes, until lightly browned, stirring often. Place baking sheet on a wire rack and cool undisturbed until room temperature, about 1-1/2 hours. Break up and store in a large container at room temperature up to 1 month.
Makes about 8 cups.
