Homemade Granola…too Yum!

I can’t remember where I got this recipe, so if I have lifted this off of another blog or website I am sorry, but this is super yum and I have to share.  Granola can get expensive bought in a box at the store, but making it at home is super cheap and easy.  And I LOVE cheap and easy.  Here is all you have to do:

Combine the following ingredients in a mixing bowl:

2 c oats
1/2 c wheat germ
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt

Then in a saucepan,  simmer the following over low heat
1/4 c maple syrup
3 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp water
1 tsp vanilla

Then drizzle the wet mixture all over the dry ingredients.

Pour it all into a 9 x 13 greased pan and bake at 275 degrees for 30 minutes. Stir it up, add nuts or dried fruit or whatever you feel like and then continue to bake for another 15 minutes. Let it cool. Then devour. Yummy!

On a lighter note…we are still eating

When things are going supremely crappy I try to find comfort in the simple things.  Like, right now, we have food in our fridge/cupboards.  I appreciate it even more since they were bare just a week ago.  Tonight we are having Baked Chicken Drumsticks and Roasted Veggies.  And it is good.
