Homemade Granola Recipe

We love granola, especially with homemade yogurt. There are TONS of recipes for granola out there. The recipe I use to make our granola is adapted from Miserly Moms.

5 cups quick oats
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/3 c. concentrated apple juice
1/2 c. dry milk powder
1/3 c. honey
a dash of cinnamon (the original recipe called for 2 T. but I found that was WAAAAY too much!)
1/2 t. salt

sunflower/pumpkin seeds, almonds, banana chips, other nuts or fruit

In a small saucepan, heat sugar, juice, dry milk, and honey

Until it looks like this:

Meanwhile, combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl

Pour wet ingredients over dry and mix until combined. Spread the mixture onto a greased baking sheet (I use 2 large sheets)

Bake at 300 for 40 minutes, stir every 10-15 min.

When the granola is done it will be crunchy!
The granola drys out quicker on the outside, so when I stir I try to move some of the inside to the outside so that it drys evenly. The stirring does break the granola up so that you do not have a lot of chunks, but if you stir gently some will still stick together.
