Easy Homemade Granola

Well, I love granola as much as the next person, but I'm not sure a huge fan of the general fat/calorie content of it.  So, I've decided to start making my own.  Now I can always have a healthy snack/breakfast/mix-in on hand! I'm also thinking this will come in handy for my lunches containing yogurt. :)  It's not rocket science, just oats, nuts and honey basically!  And boy is it yummy!  :)  

"Baby you're a firework, come and show us what you're worth..." ~Katy Perry  Don't ask why....because I don't know...but this above song has been in my head for a month straight.  Again, don't really know why...but I like it.  And it helps get me through the day, because it's happy.  :)

Easy Granola:
3 c. Quick Oats
1/2 c. Nuts, rough chopped (Almonds, Walnuts, Pecans, etc.)
1/4 c. Craisins/Raisins
1/2 c. Honey
1 t. Vanilla
2 T. Water

1.  Preheat oven to 250degrees. Mix together dry ingredients.
2.  In separate bowl mix together honey, vanilla and water.
3.  Combine the wet and dry ingredients.
4.  Spread over a greased/lined baking sheet.  
5.  Place in preheated oven for 1 hour.  Stir every 20 minutes. :)
6.  Let cool completely before storing in an airtight container. 
Little pieces, bigger pieces.  It's just got everything I ever would want in granola! :)  (And none of the stuff I don't!)  Don't mind my alien red hand in the pic, btw.  Yummy, tasty, and healthy!  (I used almonds and craisins by the way....)  :)
