Vanilla Almond Granola



It's hard to find granola at the grocery stores here. They have lots of muesli and granola bars but I was craving some of my favorite Whole Foods French Vanilla granola. It's so good. I would lessen the sugar content next time and I'd definitely add some flaxseed, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, or unsweetened coconut. I used 2 smaller sheet pans, turned the granola mixture every 10-15 min. trying to end in 4-5 sheets of granola.

4 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup golden brown sugar , packed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons vanilla extract

Position rack to middle of oven and preheat to 300*.
Line pan(s) with parchment
Mix next 5 ingredients in large bowl.
combine oil, honey and sugar in small saucepan; bring to simmer over medium heat.
Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.
Pour hot liquid over oat mixture; stir well.
Using hands, toss mixture until thoroughly mixed.
Spread granola on prepared baking sheet.
Bake until golden brown, stirring occasionaly, about 30 minutes (but check after 20).
Transfer sheet to rack; cool granola completely.
(Can be made two weeks ahead. Store in airtight container at room temperature.) Makes about 8 cups.
