Homemade Granola

When my friend Eva couldn't find the perfect recipe for homemade granola, she concocted her own. It is simple and yummy and my kids prefer it to boxed cereal. I'm munching on it now . . .

1 - 42 oz. container Old Fashioned Oats (about 14 cups)
1 cup powdered milk
2 Tbsp. Cinnamin
Nuts - optional

Combine above ingredients in large bowl. Then add:
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 cups honey
2 Tbsp vanilla.
Stir. Divide between 2 jelly roll pans and bake at 200 F for 2 hours. No need to stir. Turn oven off and leave in oven for 2-3 hours.

I added the "cannery" label, because this is one way to use the powdered milk and oats from the cannery.

Yum. I just went to the cannery on Wednesday and bought two huge bags of oats. I'm going to try this soon. MMMMM.

Holly or anyone, where do you get honey? I'm about to run out . . .

Okay, so this is my third comment on this post but I made the granola a couple of nights ago and it is SO GOOD. And SO EASY. It's all Van has been eating. I added sunflower seeds and next time I might add more nuts and raisins. Thanks Holly!
