Quick Granola

A few days ago, I was in the mood for some granola, but I was short on time. I found this recipe, and it’s becoming a staple! It’s perfect as a snack, a cereal or as part of a parfait.
We all love it!

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
2 Cups Oatmeal
1/3 C. Butter
2 Tablespoons Honey
1/3 C. Brown Sugar
1/2 C. Slivered Almonds
1/3 C. Craisins

Heat the Olive Oil in a large skillet. Add oats and cook until oats begin to brown (about 5 minutes), stirring very frequently.
Remove from heat and spread oats on a cookie sheet to cool.

Using the same skillet: melt butter, add brown sugar and honey. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is bubbly. Add oats -cook for another five minutes. Pour granola onto the cookie sheet -spread it around so it can get nice and cool.
Add nuts and craisins.

You can add whatever combo of dried fruit and nuts you’d like. I just happen to love almonds and craisins! I would have added cashews but I didn’t have any on hand.
