Sorry I have been away for so long. Just needed a lil' break from blogging, although I have kept up with all of your blogs during my break! Well, it's been very snowy around here and I have been craving really good, but really bad for me food. Here is a recipe from my sis-in-law, Corine. It's the most scrumptious granola ev-ah!
Heat about 2 Tbs. olive oil on med. heat in an iron skillet if possible, if not any old skillet will do.
Pour in 2 1/2 cups of oats and 1/2 cup of shredded coconut. Stir for 5-8 mins. until lightly toasted...keep it moving. Pour mixture onto baking sheet/jelly roll pan.
Put in 1/2 cup butter (REAL BUTTER),
1/3 cups brown sugar, and 2 Tbs. honey, and if you'd like you can add a handful of your favorite chopped nuts at this time or you can mix them in at the end which is what I did this time.
When mixture starts to bubble,
pour oat mixture back into skillet and cook for 3-5 more minutes, stirring constantly.
Pour mixture back onto baking sheet/jelly roll pan . Go ahead and add whatever you'd like...this time I used a mixture of dried cherries, blueberries, and cranberries, sliced almonds and pecan pieces.
Mix it all together.
Eat the whole dang thing now or put in a cute container to munch on later or give away (yeah, right).
