Stovetop Granola

Today's featured recipes is granola, I love granola and I especially like it when it is home made. A very simple and easy recipe to make.


1 tablespoon olive oil
 2 cups rolled oats
 1/3 cup butter
 2 tablespoons honey
 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
 1/2 cup chopped almonds

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oats then cook and stir until starting to brown and crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and spread out on a cookie sheet to cool.

Melt the butter in the same pan over medium heat. Stir in the honey and brown sugar; cook, stirring constantly, until bubbly. Return the oats to the pan. Cook and stir for another 5 minutes or so. Pour out onto the cookie sheet and spread to cool.

Once cool, transfer to an airtight container and stir in the almonds and dried cranberries. Any additional nuts and fruit can be stirred in at this time also.
