My go-to recipe this week has been a simplified granola recipe.
It has served for breakfast, snacks, and dessert this past week.
I made another batch last night.
It passed the hubby test.
I think that he likes it because it doesn't create hard clumps that rip your mouth up.
We both like it better than hot oatmeal.

Oatmeal Cookie Granola

3 cups oatmeal 
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup raw honey
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla 
1 cup raisins (or other dried fruit)
1/3 cup chopped walnuts (or other chopped nut)

In a medium mixing bowl, add and thoroughly stir all of the dry ingredients into the dry oatmeal.
In a separate bowl, mix the coconut oil, honey, and vanilla together. 
Once this is well blended, add to the oatmeal mix. 
Spread thinly on a baking sheet (you wont need to grease anything). 
Bake at 350° for 12 minutes or until slightly browned, turning once or twice
(ideally every 4 minutes so that it cooks as evenly as possible).
