Homemade Granola


2 C whole oats (not quick)
2 Tb brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
3 Tb canola oil
1 Tb water
1/4 C honey
1 C additional ingredients
1 tsp additional flavorings
Additional ingredients:  coconut flakes, pecans, walnuts, almonds (all nuts must be unsalted and raw), flax seed, raisins, craisins, dried fruit
Additional flavorings:  vanilla extract, almond extract, cinnamon, orange zest, ground ginger


1.  Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Mix the all the ingredients together in a large bowl until all the dry ingredients are evenly coated.
2.  Spread onto a greased sheet pan and bake for 26-30 minutes, stirring completely after the 10, 20, 23, and 26 minute mark.  After 20 minutes in the oven, it browns very quickly so watch it closely and keep stirring until golden brown all over.
3.  Cool completely and store in an airtight container.
My favorite version includes 3/4 C coconut, 2T flax seed, 1/4 C chopped pecans, 1 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp cinnamon.  I add dried fruit to the individual servings since not everyone likes it.
