This is a really tasty, inexpensive granola that the children and I love! Imagine it served with yogurt and berries, in the spring...YUM!

Vanilla Granola
10 cups rolled oats
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup (or more) flax seeds (optional)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2/3 cup coconut oil (use vegetable oil if you have to)
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup white sugar
2 1/2 Tbsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 300. Lightly oil a 11x15 glass baking pan, or cookie sheets

In a large bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, flax, salt and cinnamon.
In a small saucepan, combine honey, coconut oil, and white sugar. Cook over low heat until sugar has dissolved and everything is combined.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. It will bubble and foam. Pour over oat mixture and mix with a wooden spoon (or your hands) until oats are evenly coated.

Pour into prepared baking dish and bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Leave on counter uncovered overnight to cool. In the morning, break apart and store in an airtight container.
