Homemade Honey Almond granola

Earlier in the week I posted a quick recipe for our chocolate mocha granola - (see below or do a search in the search engine to your right).  This morning I wanted to finish out the granola topic with the second kind made - the Honey Almond Granola.  Yum! 

Change this to add or remove things you like to it - like raisins or dried fruit if that's your thing, seeds, dried coconut, etc.  I used sugar free honey in ours so that's an option too.  I sealed ours air tight in a food sealer but any air tight container will do.  If yours happens to lose it's crunch because humidity got in, just reheat it in a hot oven briefly, turn the oven off right away and let it set for a few hours or put it in a  food dehydrator. 

Honey Almond granola

1 c oats
1/4 c honey
1 T melted butter
1 t vanilla
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 c chopped almonds, roasted
1/4 c wheat germ
1/4 c golden flax seed meal

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Bake at 325° for 20-25  minutes, stir half way through. If they are not done, continue to bake and stir once in a while.  Turn the oven off and leave them in to completely dry through.  (I bake at night and after 25 minutes turn off the oven and leave it in all night.)  Seal in an airtight container.  I used my food sealer.  Use as cereal, a snack or as a topping for yogurt, ice cream, etc.

I just couldn't get over how granola in a pan looks like ground beef.  Ha ha.

 We seal ours tight but any airtight container will do
