Meet Cynthia from Feeding Big

Hi y'all! While I'm moving and getting adjusted, some of my bloggy friends have written posts for me! I hope you enjoy this series and find some wonderful new blogs to follow! A big hug and thank you to the bloggers who have stepped in for me during my absence. :) Today, let me introduce you to Cynthia from Feeding Big:

Granola is a wonderful thing.  It can be a breakfast food.  It can be a snack.  It can be a part of a late night or lazy night dinner. 

I found a great granola recipe at Stone Gable. I have long been a fan of  her site.  It is not only informational, but it is also stunning!  This recipe quickly became one of my favorites.  I have added a few things over the years and I now call it my own recipe.

Best Granola Ever
Adapted from Stone Gable

6 cups of oatmeal

1 1/2 cups slivered almonds

2 1/2 cups chopped pecans
1/2 dark brown sugar
1/2 cup non flavored vegetable oil
1 tsp cinnamon
2 TBS vanilla
1-2 cups assorted dried fruit (I use dried cherries, cranberries and raisins)

Preheat oven to 225 degrees.

Mix all ingredients except oatmeal and dried fruit in a large bowl.   Mix well.  Add oatmeal and coat evenly.  Place on a large cookie sheet and spread evenly.

Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes. Turn every 15 minutes.

I hope you will give it a try!  Please let me know if you like it!

Thank you for stopping by,  Cynthia! :) You can find her on FacebookPinterest, Twitter or follow her blog, HERE.

I hope you enjoy! Shared at these fun parties!
