I have never made granola before, so I thought I would start with an easy recipe. I wanted to try something "healthy" tonight, so I used whipped butter instead of the stick. As it has 1/2 the fat & saturated fat. I found that at the first full 5 minutes it started to burn bits of the oatmeal, so it really has to be monitored. The brown sugar mixture cooked very quick to, and by the time I added the oatmeal back I could only cook it about 1 minute to avoid it from burning. I poured it onto a parchment paper lined sheet. I decided to not add the nuts and I do not like dried cranberries. However, the granola mix tasted just like a chewy granola bar exploded, and it was delicious! If I made again I would make less as I prefer it chewy. It does turn to the harder cereal type as it cools. This would be perfect for someone who buys a lot of boxed granola cereal. I did try it though next day with some Greek vanilla yogurt and it went together well.
