A little Bit About Me
Someplace in Thyme
I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

4 cups oatmeal (not instant)
2 cups coconut
2 cups sliced almonds
1 1/2 cups dried cherries (you can use any dried fruit you like)
1/2 cup veggie oil
1/3 cup honey
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Mix the dried ingredients together in a very large bowl.
Mix oil and honey and pour together with dry
stir until well mixed
pour into a jello roll or shallow pan and bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes.
HINTS: I also put wheat germ in my granola before mixing. I probably use approx. 1/4 cup. I also use sunflower seeds, maybe 1/2 cup depending on what you like. Check and stir the granola approx. every 10 minutes and make sure it doesn't burn. The time is takes to bake may be less for you than me. Just watch it, and enjoy.....YUMMY
