Homemade Granola

I made this to make granola bars (recipe will be coming soon!) and it was actually really good just eating it plain! And the best part is how simple it is to make!
I used this recipe and changed it up a little.


4 C. Rolled Oats
2oz bag Sliced Almonds (Abt. 2/3 Cup), crushed
2 TBS Flour
2 TBS Ground flax seed
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 C. Brown sugar
2 TBS water
1/4 C. Vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla

Crush the almonds so they are in small pieces. In a large bowl mix the rolled oats, almonds, flour, flax seed, and salt. In a small bowl mix the brown sugar and water until the sugar is somewhat dissolved. Add the vegetable oil and vanilla. Pour the sugar mixture over the dry ingredients and mix until it is well incorporated. Spread on a 9x13 cookie sheet (you can line with parchment paper for easy cleanup) and bake for 25 minutes at 300 degrees, take out and stir. If you would like to add dehydrated fruit then add it now. Then bake for an additional 12 minutes. Let it cool. It will store for about 10 days. Or you could store it in the fridge or freezer and it will last 2+ weeks.
