Make-Ahead Breakfast

A few months ago, I had run out of honey which our 'normal' granola recipe calls for, so I decided to try this recipe I found online that uses sugar for sweetener.  After tweaking the original recipe, we like it so much that it is now our new 'normal' granola recipe!  One batch provides many quick and easy breakfasts for our family.

Cinnamon Granola

8 cups rolled oats
2 cups flaked unsweetened coconut
1-1/4 cups light brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup raisins 
1/4 cup cornmeal 
1-1/2 Tbsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup water
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. salt 
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine first seven ingredients.
  • Melt butter and add water, vanilla and salt.
  • Pour liquid mixture over dry ingredients, stirring to coat.
  • Bake in a large pan(s) at 325 degrees for 20 minutes, stirring once during that time.
  • Cool and store in airtight container or ziploc bag.
