Healthy, Sweet Crunchy Oatmeal Granola Recipe

When you do not have the time to cook a healthy breakfast these oatmeal granola bars can come in very handy. If you have a toaster oven, such at the Cuisinart TOB 195 Exact Heat Toaster Oven Broiler Stainless, you can make these very cheaply. The Cuisinart TOB 195 Exact Heat Toaster Oven Broiler Stainless is smaller and heats up a lot faster and keeps it heat a lot better, so, all in all you will be saving a lot of energy.

Enough about that now, here is your recipe for Healthy, Sweet Crunchy Oatmeal Granola

Sweet Crunchy Oatmeal Granola

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 TBSP water
  • 4 cups old fashioned oatmeal
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (any combination you like)
  • 1 cup raisins
  1. Put butter, brown sugar, honey, and water in a 9x13 baking pan. Turn oven on to 375 degrees and set pan inside oven to melt ingredients.
  2. Remove pan from oven when butter, brown sugar, and honey are melted, stir, then add the remaining ingredients and stir together well.
  3. Put back in oven and bake for 40 to 45 minutes, stirring every 10 or 15 minutes while it bakes.
  4. Remove from oven, let cool, and add raisins, mixing again. Let cool completely.
