From the kitchen of Stephanie Knewasser. Granola is so versatile. I have two base recipes: One that has a  sweet bite from
molasses and one that is made with olive oil.
Molasses Granola

In a bowl whisk together:
1/2 c oil (I use Canola)
1/3 c brown sugar, packed
3 Tbsp real maple syrup (may sub all/ part with honey)
2 Tbsp molasses
4 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt

Drizzle brown sugar mixture over:
5 c rolled oats
2 c rice krispies
Stir to coat.

Line a large pan with a silicone baking mat or parchment.
Press mixture into pan. Pressing helps it form clusters.

Bake @ 325 35-40 minutes.
Let cool. Break into clusters.

Add up to
2 cups favorite add-ins such as:
raisins
craisins
sliced almonds
chocolate chips
coconut
dried apricots
Turkish figs

Store in an airtight container for up to 1 month.

Molasses granola without any add-ins. A bowl of granola
topped with sliced fresh fruit (strawberries, peaches...) and
topped with milk makes a great breakfast.

Olive oil granola. One of my favorite snacks is semi thawed
raspberries with Greek yogurt, granola and cocoa almonds.

1/2 c olive oil
1/3 c brown sugar, packed
1/4 c real maple syrup
