I made granola

It is one of those things that you never really think you could do because it would take so much time and effort. On the contrary. It was super easy
And even though I cooked it too long it was still a delicious breakfast treat this fine Tuesday morning.

2 Cups of oats
1/4 c. of honey (I used Beeline honey. And so should you! It's made here in Chicago, so it's local, AND it helps people facing significant barriers to employment, particularly those with histories of criminal conviction)

1/4 c. PURE Maple Syrup
1/3 c. Olive Oil
Three hand fulls of slivered almonds
Three hand fulls of craisins
(you can also use whatever dried fruit and nuts you want.)
Cook for 20 minutes in a 300 degree oven
stir after 20 minutes
Put in for another 15 minutes
Lay out the granola on a piece of tin foil to cool
Once it hardens break into pieces

I had mine with yogurt for b-fast
