Aunt Karen's HOMEMADE GRANOLA (no sugar)

4 C Old-fashioned Rolled Oats

Toss the oats, coconut,& almonds together in a large bowl. Then whisk together the following ingredients:

1/2 C Vegetable Oil

Pour the liquids over the oat mixture and stir until all the oats and nuts are coated. Pour onto a cookie sheet. Bake in a *325 degree oven, stirring every 15 minutes until the mixture turns a nice golden brown - about 40 minutes. Remove the granola from the oven and allow to cool stirring occasionally. Then add your choice of all or any of the following:

To make this healthier granola, use coconut oil instead of vegetable oil. :)
