Brown Sugar Granola

Brown Sugar Granola

1/2 cup margarine (1 stick)
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 cups oatmeal
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
1/2 cup nuts or seeds (optional)

In a large pot, melt the margarine and the brown sugar together. Stir it up and let it simmer for a few minutes (2 or 3 minutes should be enough). Add the salt, oatmeal and cinnamon to the 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 covered well.

Put the granola onto a cookie sheet, the kind with sides. Bake it at 375 degrees F for 10 minutes. It should be a nice golden brown. Remove the pan from the oven and allow the granola to cool right in the pan. When it is cool, break it up into small pieces and put it in airtight container. Add the nuts and/or raisins when you put it into the canister.

Serve for breakfast in a bowl with milk or yogurt.

*Children should always be supervised when preparing or cooking in the kitchen.
