Recipe: Homemade Granola

It's recipe time!  This is a mix of things I found on Pinterest and tweaked to my taste preferences.  I am a big granola fan but hate all the added sugar and fat in most store-bought kinds.  This is a little less processed and sugar and fat filled.

- 4 cups multi grain oats (NOT quick cooking)
- 1 cup crushed almonds
- 1/4 cup Canola or vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup sugar free syrup
- 2 teaspoons Splenda
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 400. Mix the oats, sugar, and salt together in a large bowl.

Crush your almonds (or buy them sliced.)  I used a mortar and pestle to crush mine.  It only added a couple of extra minutes to the recipe.  Mx them into the bowl with your other ingredients.

Add in the syrup and oil and mix together until well combined. Spread on baking sheet in a thin layer.  Bake for 20-25 minutes until dark, tossing once.  

Add raisins and mix.  

Eat and enjoy!

p.s. Happy Birthday to one of my faves - Antonia!
