FOR THE HOMEMADE GRANOLA

This is a delicious recipe, shared with me by my dear friend, Lindsey Byers.  Lindsey got this recipe from her college roommate, Jenni Cook Holbert, when Jenni's Mom and sisters would send it to them.  Like I always say - share recipes, and they will last forever!

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 ½ cups oatmeal
  • ⅓ cup honey
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 1 cup of golden raisins
  • ¾ cup of brown sugar
  • 1 cup of pecans
  • ¼ cup of bran
  • ½ cup quartered dried apricots
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • handful of shredded coconut

Mix all ingredients in one large mixing bowl. Spray a 9x13 pan with Pam and pour the mixture into the baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes and stir well. Continue baking for 10 more minutes. Feel free to add other ingredients such as dried cranberries or apples!  **When I made Lindsey’s (Lacey’s) granola, I added shredded coconut and dried cranberries!  Store in an airtight container.
