We love granola! But it has to be just right-no nuts, seeds, or any of that stuff. And preferrably no big clumps. So, here is my recipe for plain granola. My kids love to eat it warm, especially if there is yogurt to put on top.
12 cups rolled oats (I prefer the old fashioned)
1 cup of oil
1 cup water (sometimes I substitute some mapeline syrup for some of the water)
1 Tbl. vanilla
3 cups brown sugar
2 Tbl. cinnamon
I put the oats in my mixer bowl. Then I combine the oil, water, and vanilla and drizzle it over the oats while the mixer is on low. Then I slowly put in the brown sugar and cinnamon, mixing as little as possible to avoid clumping. Put in greased pan(s) and bake in preheated overn at 425 degrees, for about 25 min. stirring after about 15 min.
