  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oats then cook and stir until starting to brown and crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and spread out on a cookie sheet to cool.
  2. Melt the butter in the same pan over medium heat. Stir in the honey and brown sugar; cook, stirring constantly, until bubbly. Return the oats to the pan. Cook and stir for another 5 minutes or so. Pour out onto the cookie sheet and spread to cool.
  3. Once cool, transfer to an airtight container and stir in the almonds and dried cranberries. Any additional nuts and fruit can be stirred in at this time also.

I tried this recipe, but with the suggestions of others. I scaled it down, using 2 c. oats, 1 T honey, 2T brown sugar, and only about 1 T butter. It came out so much better, like actual granola instead of over-sweet goo... I also spread it onto a cookie sheet and put in under the broiler on the middle rack to dry it out and make it crunchy. Also, a little cinnomon on top is really nice.



Lighter version: Easy, delicious, economical and lower calories...what's not to love!!! Skip the oil and carefully toast 2 c. oatmeal on cookie sheet under broiler. Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in skillet; add 1 Tbsp. honey, 2 Tbsp. brown sugar, 1/2 tsp. vanilla and dash of salt. Cook and stir for about 1 min. then add toasted oats and 1/2 c. sliced almonds. Stir and cook for about 3-4 min. (oats will be coated and continue to toast). Then add 1/3 c. dried cranberries (or raisins) and stir 1 more min. Spread mixture back on cookie sheet (lightly coated w/ cooking spray) and return to warm oven (broiler is off) for about 15-30 min. This allows granola to continue drying out. So yummy and much cheaper than store bought!!! Can't wait to try other nuts and maybe dried blueberries (for hubby). Have fun making this recipe your own...

Very easy and tasty. Four stars b/c i doubled the oats,added cinnamon,vanilla, and a titch of salt. Did not change the butter, oil sugar or honey. Had the oven heating while cooking, spread on cookie sheet and put in oven then turned it off and left it. Turned out crisp and toasty. nibbled all day!
