Honey and Cinnamon Granola

 
There are not many things I allow my kiddos to get up from the table and not eat. On occasion I do have a few exceptions. One is oatmeal. I have no problem eating oatmeal raisin cookies, but cooked oatmeal – blah.  My son agrees with me.  He agrees cooked oatmeal tastes funny, and that includes chewing and swallowing.
But oatmeal is so good for you.   So if we can’t eat cooked oatmeal I am shooting for what seems to be the very best next thing, honey and cinnamon granola.  It’s not cooked oatmeal but it is a source of fiber, protein and fruit.  And most importantly, these things taste good!

 

Enjoy!

 

Servings: Hmmm depends on how you use it.  We may use this recipe as a snack, on cereal or yogurt.  This recipe fills up a quart sized bag easy.  If placed in a sealed container it can last 2 weeks…maybe even a month.
