Brown Sugar Granola

Brown Sugar Granola - Finding Joy in My Kitchen

1-2 T butter or olive oil

3/4 - 1 C brown sugar, packed

1/4 C water

1/4 - 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

7-8 C oats {quick or Old Fashioned}

Dried fruit, etc.

Melt butter, brown sugar and water together in a pan over medium heat. Stir well, and allow mixture to simmer for 2-3 minutes.

In a bowl, mix together cinnamon and oats and add to the brown sugar mix.

Remove from the heat and stir until all oats are well coated. Place granola on a cookie sheet (with edges), and bake for 5 minutes at 375.

Remove from the oven, and stir/flip granola and bake for another 5 minutes until granola is lightly browned. Allow granola to cool on the cookie sheet.

Transfer to an airtight container when cool. Granola will keep for a couple of weeks in an airtight container... but ours never lasts that long!
