Ridiculously Easy and Yummy Granola

I love this stuff for breakfast, snacks, whatever.  So easy, so yummy, so healthy, so inexpensive and so versatile!  Does it get any better than that?
1/2 cup Coconut Oil, Butter or Olive Oil
1/2 cup Honey or real Maple Syrup (can use less if you don’t want it quite so sweet)
6 cups Oats
2 teaspoons Cinnamon (optional)
1 teaspoon Vanilla (optional)
1/2 cup Dried, Unsweetened Coconut (I love this stuff)
Nuts and dried fruit (whatever kinds you like)
1-Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
2-Put coconut oil (or butter) in big microwavable bowl and melt (skip this step if using Olive Oil.)
3-Add everything else and stir it all up until well combined.
4-Line a baking sheet with foil or a silicon baking mat (everyone should have at least one of these!)
5-Spread granola out evenly on the baking sheet.
6-Bake for 20 minutes, take the pan out and stir the granola and then bake it for 20 more minutes.
7-Let it cool and then enjoy as is or add: chocolate chips or any dried fruit or nuts you like.  It’s great as a snack or as cereal in a bowl with milk.

    This was SOOOO easy! And very delicious! We buy a lot of granola ( my kids call it “crunchy oatmeal” and we eat it for breakfast with milk at least 3 days a week) so I am so excited to find a cheaper and healthier option! Plus I love that we can add in what we want. This batch we added pecan pieces and dried cranberries and my kids DEVOURED it! Plus, the fast that my kids helped make it… makes them want to eat it even more! GREAT RECIPE!
