granola recipe on a wednesday night

tired already and its barely ten o clock. waiting patiently for a weekend rest to arrive.
staying up to make granola for breakfast tomorrow, an effort that never goes unnoticed.. cranberries, sliced almonds, austrian oats and hungarian honey make me smile in the morning, especially when they are all drowned in organic soy milk. mmm.

do you want my recipe?

here it goes:

4 cups oats (i mix half and half with plain large flake rolled oats and generic muesli from tesco)
1 1/2 cups sliced/chopped/slivered (however you like em) almonds
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups dried fruits (mix and mingle, its the best policy... i like to put in goji berries, chopped apricots, raisins, cranberries and coconut)

preheat over to 300F
mix oats, almonds, salt, cinnamon and dried fruits in a bowl
in a saucepan warm the oil and honey and sugar until it is dissolved, then add the vanilla
mix the dry ingredients together with the wet and spread onto a baking sheet
bake 30-40 minutes, stirring every few minutes

let cool and wait patiently before pouring yourself a bowl.
it is perfect with some sliced bananas.

*dear me that photo is terrible. some days i am just too lazy to get out my camera, take proper photographs, upload them to iphoto and then onto the blog i just resort to the photobooth instead. my apologies..
