Ingredients
  

  • 5 cups old fashioned oats
  • 2 cups sliced almonds 8 oz
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 tablespoon vanilla

Instructions
 

  •  
  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the oats, almonds, cinnamon, and salt until well combined
  • In a glass measuring cup, put the honey, brown sugar, oil, and vanilla
  • Microwave the measuring cup for 30 seconds and whisk liquid ingredients together (with a small whisk or a fork).  If it needs more time, continue to heat in 10 second intervals.
  • Once combined, pour the liquid mix over the dry ingredients and stir together until all the oats and almonds are coated.
  • Spread out the mixture evenly between the two prepared baking sheets and put into the oven at 300 degrees.
  • After 20 minutes, mix the granola with a spatula to ensure even cooking and break up any clumps
  • After another 10 minutes, give it a stir again
  • 10 minutes later (for at total of about 40 minutes in the oven), the granola should be done
  • Take out of the oven and let cool on the baking sheet completely.
  • Transfer to an airtight container for storage and enjoy!

Notes

If you like more big clumps in your granola, don't stir it as often.
This granola lasts a long time in an air tight container on the counter.  If it doesn't get eaten, we've had it up to 3 weeks and it's still crunchy and delicious.
