Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    3 Tbsp butter
    1/3 cup brown sugar
    2 tbsp water
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    2 cups rolled oats
    1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/4 cup dried fruit (optional, not calcutated)
    1/4 cup nuts or seeds (optional, not calculated)

Directions

In a 2 quart saucepan melt the butter, sugar and water together. Stir it well and let it simmer for a few minutes (2 or 3 minutes should be enough). Add the salt, oatmeal and cinnamon to the big pot. Remove the pot from the stove and stir up the granola. You want to coat the oats with the brown sugar and margarine, so keep stirring until everything is moistened. Put the granola onto a cookie sheet, the kind with sides. Bake it at 375 for 10 minutes. It should be a nice golden brown. Remove the pan from the oven and allow the granola to cool right there in the pan. When it is cool, break it up into small pieces and transfer it to clean coffee can, or other type of canister. Add the nuts and/or dried fruit when you put it into the canister. (makes about 8 servings, 1/4 cup each)
