Homemade Granola in Mason Jars

This year we gave out mason jars filled with homemade granola to our family and neighbors as little Christmas gifts.

I love the idea of giving a handmade gift not only for Christmas, but for any occasion!

Here’s my version of homemade granola.

{Note: this recipe makes enough granola to fill about 8 medium sized mason jars}

You can buy a Set of 12 Mason Jars from Amazon for Under $15 shipped!

Dry Ingredients:

2 cups sliced almonds (you can also add dried fruit/nut/seeds if you like)

3/4 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons cinnamon

2 teaspoons salt

In a large bowl mix together old fashioned oats and almonds.

In a separate bowl mix together olive oil, honey and vanilla extract. Stir until well mixed.

Add the liquid ingredients to the oats & almonds and mix very well.

Spread the granola evenly onto a cookie sheet or baking pan

Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-12 minutes stirring/flipping the granola every few minutes to avoid burning.

The granola should be golden brown when done.

Let the granola cool for about 5-10 minutes before moving it into the mason jars.

The granola will stay fresh for about 2 weeks if kept in an airtight container (like the mason jars)
