Easy & Delicious Simple Granola

I LOVE GRANOLA!  Don't you?  There are a few on the market that I don't think are any healthier than the rest of the boxed cereal.  And if it is healthy it's super expensive.  In my house we can go through 20 cups of granola in a day or two. 

When I saw this recipe I was thrilled.   This is a very basic and simple mix.   Which is why I love it.  We usually toss in some blueberries.  You can add any of your favorite ingredients.  I usually double or quadruple the recipe so I have more than a days worth.

Simple Granola

7 Cups Oats (Old Fashion is best but you can use quick)
1/2 C Brown Sugar
1/2 C Oil (Canola, Olive, etc.)
1/2 C Honey or Maple Syrup
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Vanilla

Preheat oven to 375.

In a pan mix sugar, oil, honey or syrup to low boil.  Sometimes I use the microwave.  Add cinnamon and vanilla.

Put oats in a large bowl and pour syrup mix over and stir.

Place mixture on a lightly greased tray.
