Homemade Granola!

 I saw this recipe in Country Living magazine for homemade granola.   Super easy and the girls had a ball making it.  So good over yogurt! 

This was a half batch.

1 container(s) (18-ounce) old-fashioned oats (6 cups)

8 ounce(s) sliced almonds

1 cup(s) dried cranberries

1 cup(s) chopped dried apricots

1 cup(s) light-brown sugar

1 teaspoon(s) ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon(s) salt

1 1/2 stick(s) unsalted butter

1/2 cup(s) honey


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, toss together all ingredients except butter and honey.

In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt unsalted butter. Stir in honey. Pour over oat mixture and toss to distribute. Spread granola onto a parchment lined baking pan and bake, stirring occasionally, until oats are toasted and sugar begins to caramelize, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool completely on pan. Transfer to an airtight container
