With the rising cost of food, I am always looking for ways to save money. Cooking instead of buying is one of my favorites. One of the items that I cook is granola cereal.
We eat cereal for breakfast as a family and the cost of each box has been steadily going up the past few years. This recipe makes about 14 servings as each serving is ½ a cup. For breakfast, I usually put a ½ cup of granola with a ½ cup of honey nut cheerios and a ½ cup of soy milk. My wife puts some in her yogurt.
It takes about 5 minutes to prepare and 30 minutes to cook.
· 7 cups of oatmeal (not the instant kind)
· 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
· 4 teaspoons of vanilla
· ¼ cup canola oil
· 5 tablespoons of date honey
Pour the oatmeal in a bowl. Then add each ingredient separately mixing after adding it. Then place on a baking sheet topped with parchment paper for 30 minutes at 300F or 150C.
