Blueberry Granola

I love granola but I really hate spending the money for it at the store. If is so easy to make that I just need to do it. Since I love blueberries, it was my dry fruit of choice. The best part of making granola is that it will last for up to 3 weeks in an airtight container.
Blueberry Granola
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
4 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1 cup sliced almonds
1 cup dried blueberries

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside. 
  3. In a large saucepan, add the oil, honey, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt.
  4. Stir the mixture and heat over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Its about 3 minutes.
  5. In a large bowl, combine the oats and almonds.
  6. Pour the warm honey mixture into the oat mixture. Stir until combined.
  7. Gently fold in the dried blueberries. 
  8. Spread the mixture onto the baking sheet.
  9. Bake for 10 minutes. Stir.
  10. Bake for another 10 minutes or until the granola is a deep golden brown.
