Made for another world

Cranberry Almond Granola

Cranberry Almond Granola

I've been in a baking mood lately, which is not typical for me. I've made banana bread, apple bread and this granola. I thought it turned out pretty good, so I thought I'd share the recipe.

3 cups rolled oats
1 cup oat bran
1/4 cup ground flax seed
1/4 cup wheat germ
1 cup raw whole almonds
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup dark brown sugar (I used light, it's what I had)
1 tsp vanilla
3 Tbs canola oil
1/4 cup water
3/4 cup cranberries (I used a little more)

Preheat oven to 300. Whisk together oats, oat bran, flax seed, wheat germ, almonds and salt. Set aside. In a medium saucepan bring honey, brown sugar, vanilla, canola oil, and water just to a bubble over medium low heat. Pour honey mixture over oat mixture, toss until oats are moist. Spread onto 2 rimmed 11x17 baking sheets. (I should have sprayed mine with non-stick spray) Bake at 300 for 20 minutes stirring twice. I added the cranberries after the last stir for the last 7 minutes of baking. Cool completely, store in sealed container up to 2 weeks or freeze.
