My Momma's Granola

This is my wonderful Mother's granola recipe.  She first found this recipe in my Paula Dean magazine but has made some adjustments (don't tell Paula but I love the changes...).  I love this granola on Greek yogurt with fresh blueberries!  It is also good by its self as a snack.  Enjoy!

The Goods:
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Molasses or honey
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1/4 TSP salt
  • 1 TSP vanilla
  • 4 cups of oats
  • 1 cup grape nut cereal 
  • 1 cup all bran flakes  (such as total)
  • 3 cups of nuts
  • 1 cup raisins, cranberries...anything fabulous

In a small sauce pan heat brown sugar, molasses, oil, salt and vanilla until the sugar is dissolved.  (Man...I need to clean up my nails!)


In a large roasting pan mix oats, both cereal and nuts.  

Pour molasses mixture all over and stir.
 

Bake for 45 minutes; stirring every 15 minutes.  

Allow mixture to cool then add raisins.   


This would be a great thank you gift or something to give during the holidays (note-to-self)!


 Grace, peace and be sure to enjoy some sweets!
