Low-Fat Honey Granola (hillbilly housewife)

Ingredients

    1/4 c margarine
    1/2 c honey
    4 c instant rolled oats
    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    1/4 tsp salt

Directions

First get out a large saucepan. In it heat the margarine or butter and honey until the margarine melts. If desired, you can also do this in a microwave-safe bowl in the microwave. When the margarine and honey are nicely melted together, stir in the oatmeal, cinnamon and salt. I prefer to use quick oats in this recipe, but old fashioned oats will work pretty well too. After mixing until the oats are well coated, turn the mixture into a large cookie sheet, the kind with sides. Bake the mixture at 300 for about 20 minutes. Stir the sides (which will brown quickly) into the center every 5 minutes or so. This will ensure even browning. After baking you can add dried fruit as desired. A cup of raisins will make this a nice treat. Be sure not to add the fruit until the oats are done baking. If you bake the raisins or other dried fruit, they will turn into evil tooth-destroying-nuggets-of-pain. The heat from the oven dries them out, making them inedible. Only add dried fruit to granola after it is done cooking.

Makes 4-1/2 cups, or 18 servings; 1/4 cup each.
