Easy Breakfast Granola

Apologies first - I apologize I haven't posted in a while - Been crazy busy...but I promise I have been writing down my recipes as I go, so I will have more to post soon.

So, my mother-in-law has been making this awesome granola, so I thought I would try to make my own. I really don't love store-bought granola. I am very picky about what's in it. So here is the easiest/greatest granola you can make:

6 cups of REGULAR Old Fashion Oats
2 cups of Craisins
1.5 Cups of Shaved Coconut
1.5 Cups of Sliced Almonds
Honey or Agave Nectar
3 TBSP Grapeseed Oil
2 TBSP Brown Sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Toss Oats with in the oil and spread onto a baking sheet. On a separate baking sheet spread out shaved Coconut. Place both sheets in oven. Remove once both are golden brown. BEWARE the Coconut will only take a few minutes. Once Oats are lightly "toasted" combine all ingredients in a bowl exept for the honey.
I squeeze honey over the bowl of ingredients and toss with a large spoon until i get clumps. Usually about takes about a 1/2 Cup. But if you like more honey---- add more!
Place in a tupperware or covered pyrex.
Serve with milk or over Vanilla Yogurt!!!
