The initial ingredients melting in the pot.
The dry ingredients waiting to be added.
Everything once it has been combined.
The granola after it has been baked. I consider mine to be finished once the edges turn the golden brown color shown in the picture. Sometimes that takes the full 10 minutes and other times it takes less. I watch the granola very closely. I check it at 5 minutes, 7 minutes and 9 minutes to prevent burning.
And the final product after it has been crumbled. I kept it plain this time but have added chocolate chips and chocolate candies in the past. I'm sure that it would be delicious with chocolate candy, seeds, dried fruits or nuts added. We tend to keep it simple so that little man(who has a peanut allergy) can still eat it.
Tip: If you double the batch bake it separately. I've tried to bake both batches at once and it always ends up burnt. I would rather spend the extra 10 minutes baking and end up with a double batch of yummy granola than try to save 10 minutes and end up with burnt and inedible granola.
