Honey Vanilla Granola Cereal

Did you know that a lot of kids don't know that pickles are pickled cucumber?

Seriously. Ask one.

The generation coming up does not know where their food comes from.

This is why I think it's important to take our kids to visit farms and shop at the farmer's markets. There, they will be able to actually talk face-to-face with people that grew/raised their food. Grasping the concept of "farm to table", as well as seeing foods made from scratch, will aid our children in making better food choices in the long run. They will be able to see the difference between whole foods vs processed foods.

So, how about getting them in the kitchen and making some cereal? 

4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 1/2 cups sliced almonds
1 cup raisins {or dried cranberries}
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon honey
3/4 teaspoon vanilla

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, nuts, salt, and cinnamon
  • Stir in oil, melted butter, honey and vanilla.
  • Spread the mixture in an even layer on cookie sheet.
  • Bake for approximately 25 minutes, stirring half way through. Watch closely as granola starts to golden. It can go from golden to "cajun style" quickly.
This recipe is great served with your choice of milk, over yogurt, or dry as a snack. Just store this in an air tight container for fresh keeping.

**This would make a great gift for the holidays!
