5. Spray a baking sheet with Pam and spread the granola evenly. Place the pan in the oven.


6. Set a timer for 30 minutes. Pull out the granola every 1o minutes to stir around the baking sheet. This will help it to not stick together as well as evenly toast it.

7. After 30 minutes, remove the granola from the oven. Pull the granola from the sides immediately. Let it cool for about 10 minutes, then scrape the granola from the bottom of the pan. After letting it cool for an additional twenty minutes, poor the finished granola in an air tight container.


Lastly, ENJOY!!!
