Cranberry-Almond Granola

One of Brian's favorite breakfasts/snacks/desserts is granola with vanilla yogurt. I've been wanting to make some homemade granola for while, but when his favorite granola was discontinued, I decided I should really make some for him. He was a big fan! I make a triple-batch of this whenever I make it, it goes so quickly.


I did a variation on the recipe from Elly Says Opa!

1.5 cups oats
3/4 cup nuts (I do all sliced almonds, by Brian's request)
3 Tbsp. maple syrup
1 Tbsp. honey
1/8 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 cup dried cranberries


Pre-heat oven to 300.

Mix together everything :) Bake for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until it is golden brown.
