Granola YUM

 Here's another awesome granola recipe to try.  True to form, this recipe is changed from the original.   I got the original recipe from Deb's awesome ward cookbook.

1 large container quick oats (42 oz)
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup brown sugar

Mix together in a large bowl, then add:
1 can sweetened condensed milk or honey
1 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
Stir until everything is well coated.  Be sure to eat some of the balls that form.  My 3 year old likes to help me taste test.  Bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes, stirring every ten minutes.  The granola should be turning golden brown when it's done.

Fun variations:
Stir in a box of corn flakes with the cooked granola, to simulate a popular breakfast cereal.  Or add nuts, dried fruit or coconut.  That's part of the fun with granola.  You can either eat as is or dress it up to suit your personal tastes.
