Need simple, yummy granola recipes

I am looking for granola recipes that are simple to make. Something I can make with the kids and that they will enjoy as a snack.

TIA!

Re: Need simple, yummy granola recipes

I don't have an actual recipe, but I used to make granola at a bakery I worked at. It was really easy. Just mix the oats with some honey and oil and whatever other goodies you like (nuts, raisins, seeds, etc.). Then lay it all on an oiled sheet pan and bake it in the oven until golden. I really like shredded coconut, almonds and raisins. A little vanilla and cinnamin is nice, too! Have fun!

Re: Need simple, yummy granola recipes

Found this one while searching online.....

Coconut Granola
INGREDIENTS:
8 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup oat bran
1 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
3/4 cup chopped almonds
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup virgin coconut oil
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup barley malt syrup or maltose syrup
1/2 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup dried cranberries

DIRECTIONS:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a large bowl, stir together the oats, oat bran, coconut and almonds. Divide between two large baking sheets, and spread into an even layer.
Bake for 7 or 8 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly toasted. Allow to cool for a few minutes, then return to the large bowl.
While the oats are toasting, combine the coconut milk, coconut oil, vegetable oil, malt syrup and honey in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring until it comes to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in the vanilla. Pour the syrup over the granola in the bowl, and stir until the dry ingredients are fully coated. Divide between the two baking sheets, and spread evenly.
Bake for 8 minutes in the preheated oven, or until fragrant and toasted. Cool in the pans, then mix in the dried cranberries. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.


Extras to add to your coconut granola:

Dried pineapple, cut into chunks, Dried papaya, cut into chunks, Raisins, Macadamia nuts, Date chunks - the options are endless! For every extra cup of ingredients add 2 tablespoons of oil and 2 Tablespoons of honey.
