Homemade Granola


Jeff’s Great Aunt Pat gave us her recipe and we adapted it to our liking. We eat this granola as cereal, on top of yogurt or snack on big chunks. It is delicious and addicting!

Combine the following ingredients in a roasting pan or other deep pan, at least 13x9 in size.

6 C. Quaker 1 Minute Oats
