Vanilla Granola

3 Cups Old Fashioned Oats (not instant)
2 Cups Rice Krispies
1/4 Cup Pure Maple Syrup
1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
1/4 Packed Light Brown Sugar
4 Tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract
Pinch Salt

Combine Oats and Rice Krispies in a large bowl. In smaller bowl, combine maple syrup, brown sugar, oil and extract with a whisk. Pour over oat mixture and gently fold with rubber spatula until thoroughly coated. Press down into an air-bake cookie sheet or jelly roll pan (I use a piece of wax paper and press down with the palm of my hand) and bake at 300 degrees for 40 minutes. Allow to cool before breaking apart. Store in air tight container.

Variations: You can coconut, nuts or dried fruit if desired. This recipe is an all-around good one for yogurt toppers or just to snack on! The added rice krispies really give this an added crunch!

Bon Appetite!
