 Crystals Lazy Granola

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup oil (I use Canola)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 7 cups oats (I use old fashioned, NOT quick cooking)
  1. Mix brown sugar, oil, and honey in a small saucepan. Bring to a low boil.
  2. Remove from heat. Stir in cinnamon and vanilla.
  3. Pour over oats in a large bowl. Stir until well coated.
  4. Spread oats in a 9×13 pan. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes.
  5. Take out and stir.
  6. Return pan to oven. Turn oven off.
  7. Go to bed. ;-) Wake up to a delicious, cinnamon-y sent wafting through your kitchen!

Tips and Tricks

  • I sometimes add chopped pecans or toasted almonds to the mix before baking.
  • Delicious as a cereal with dried fruit (we love it with raisins) and milk.
  • Adds a yummy crunch to yogurt. Easy to pack for lunch!
