Walgreens Granola

After reading all the benefits of oat a few weeks ago, I am trying to include oats in my diet very often. A great easy and healthy snack is oats and the easiest way to eat oats is in granola. I usually make my granola with brown sugar, but decided to try honey instead, and the granola came out great! Sweet nutty flavor, but not too sugary sweet
The proces is a bit laborsome, but the results are worth it!

6 cups rolled oats $1.20
1/3 cup oil
3/4 honey
1/2 tsp cinnamon .02
salt .02
1/2 cup walnuts $1.20
1/2 cup cranberries .50
1/2 cup raisins .50

heat oil in honey in a pan or microwave
mix into oats, cinnamon, making sure oats are thoroughly coated
bake at 350 for 45 minutes, tossing in pan every 15 minutes
add walnuts, bake another 15 minutes, remove from oven, pour into another baking pan, and let sit atleast an hour
add fruit and store in a airtight container
