Vanilla Honey Granola

Today I am sharing a recipe for Vanilla Honey Granola that was in my Relish magazine a few months back. This is a wonderful breakfast treat and is great on top of yogurt or with a splash of milk.

Vanilla Honey Granola

4 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1 cup wheat bran
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup walnuts
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup canola oil, plus additional for greasing pan
2 tablespoons 2% reduced fat milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly oil a large rimmed baking sheet.

Combine oats, wheat bran, coconut, walnuts, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl and stir well.

Stir honey, oil, milk, and vanilla in a small saucepan over low heat until mixture fizzes around the edges. Pour over oat mixture and stir well.

Spread onto prepared baking sheet. Bake about 25 minutes, until lightly browned, stirring often. Place baking sheet on a wire rack and cool undisturbed until room temperature, about 1 1/2 hours.

Break up and store in a large container at room temperature up to one month.

Happy Cooking!

This sounds really good; I'll plan to make it tomorrow. Granola is one of my favorite breakfasts. I have a recipe I have used for years. This may be a great variation because I love coconut.
