homemade granola

In college, I spent a lot of weekends at my cousin's house since they lived so close to campus. Sometimes my aunt would have homemade granola that we ate for breakfast. I had never had granola before, and it was delicious. Years later when I started getting into smoothie bowls, I called her up to ask for the recipe. She gave me the recipe but with no measurements. She said she just eyeballs it and so I do too! I usually make this every other week to have with my breakfast smoothie bowls.

Olive oil
Vanilla extract

1. On the stove, combine olive oil, honey, and vanilla extract on high heat until it bubbles.
2. Reduce heat to low and add oats. Stir until oats are well coated.
3. Heat on low for 10 minutes. Stir and repeat until oats have cooked for about 30-40 minutes.
4. Let cool. Store in an airtight container.

Just make sure not to over do it with the honey or the granola might be too sticky. I've definitely done it before.
