Overnight Spiced Granola
½ cup butter or margarine, melted ($.80)
½ cup honey ($.80)
1 Tablespoon cinnamon ($.15)
1 teaspoon nutmeg ($.05)
3 cups traditional oats ($.36)
3 cups quick cooking oats ($.36)
Milk, cream or yogurt ($.25)
Fresh fruit ($.50)
Preheat oven to 300.
In a small bowl, whisk together the melted butter, honey, cinnamon and nutmeg.
In a large bowl, add the oats and pour in the honey mixture. Toss until coated evenly.
Spread the mixture in a thin single layer onto 2 ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Turn off the oven and leave in the oven overnight.
In the morning, remove the granola from the oven and serve.
Serve Overnight Spiced Granola with milk, cream or yogurt and favorite fresh fruit.
Makes 4 breakfast servings.
Frugal Fact: Granola will “clump” better if you use a half and half combination of traditional rolled oats and quick cooking oats.
