Vanilla Scented Granola from Sandy A.

"We like a light breakfast and I make this granola once a week. It will keep in an airtight container for 2 weeks. It never seems to last that long at my house. Enjoy!"--Sandy A.

Vanilla Scented Granola

4 c. rolled oats
1 c. sliced almonds (or walnuts or pecans)
1/2 c. light brown sugar
1/4 tea. salt
1 tea. cinnamon

1/3 c. canola oil
2 Tbs. honey
3 tea. vanilla extract

Position rack in middle of the oven and preheat to 300 degrees F. Lightly oil large baking sheet. Mix first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Combine oil and honey in a small saucepan; bring to simmer over medium heat. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla. Pour hot liquid over oat mixture and stir until thoroughly combined.

Spread granola on prepared pan. Bake until golden brown, stirring occasionally, about 30 min. Place sheet on rack cool completely.
