Moo Can Make It Too

Moo had a multi-day field trip with school this past week and she wanted some snacks to take with her. The day that I was going to make granola for her I ended up having a headache so I was not in the best shape to make it. What I did do was find her an easy and simple granola to make. The recipe included chopped nuts and her knife skills aren't the best so PE helped her with that. The granola turned out great! Nice simple flavor. Good with milk or on yogurt or plain. I had K1 and JBonG (if I haven't mentioned, JBonG is K2's replacement) taste it. K1 even asked for the recipe. Good Job Moo!!

Remove from microwave and stir in vanilla and salt. In a large mixing bowl, mix oats and nuts. Add the brown sugar mixture. Mix thoroughly. Spread onto 2 cookie sheets and bake for a total of 45 minutes or until golden brown. After 25 minutes, stir and put back in the oven for the rest of the time. When granola has cooled completely, add dried fruits.
