I love granola! Granola bars, granola cereal, granola people, I like them all! Today I decided to make my own granola instead of buying a box at the grocery store. Making it was so easy and awesome, I had to share!

2 and 1/2 Cups of old fashioned oats
1 Teaspoon cinnamon
1 Teaspoon table salt
3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1/4 Cup honey
1/4 Cup brown sugar packed
1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Cup of salted mixed nuts
1 Cup of raisins or dried fruit of your choice

Mix the salt and cinnamin into the oats stir until mixed.
Whisk together the wet ingredients in another bowl until totally combined, add to the oat and spices mixture. Stir it until all of the oats are covered and no more liquid remains.
Spoon and spread the covered oats onto a baking pan lined with parchment paper (This will save you sticky cleaning later.)
Bake the oats in a 325 degree oven for 15 minutes, stir and flip with a spatula one time in the middle of the 15 minutes.
Sprinkle the mixed nuts on top of the oats and put in the oven for 5 more minutes.
Sprinkle the raisins or dried fruit on top of the oats and nuts.
Quickly Spatula off the granola mixture off the parchment paper and put it into a air tight container, (let it cool before you cover it.)

That is all there is to it! Eat and repeat!
Now I know what I am bringing along on my canoeing trip!
