My mother-in-law has the most delicious granola recipe! I had it at her house years ago and knew I had to get the recipe. I made it all the time in college and I realized that I hadn't made it in over a year Fall is the perfect time to make this recipe. I love the way the house smells when it is in the oven and I love having it on hand for my morning yogurt.

Mix together nuts, oats, and all spices in a big bowl. Heat honey, oil, and vanilla on stove just until boiling point. Spread oat/nut mixture out on a sheet pan (with sides) and pour liquid mixture evenly over oat mixture. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes., stirring every 5 minutes. It is really important to stir throughout the baking process so the nuts don't burn.

And just an extra picture because she is so cute! I'm starting to wonder when her "doodle" is going to kick in since she still isn't curly, but she is cute either way...
1 cup almonds
1 cup pecans or walnuts
6 cups Old fashioned Oats
1/8 cup (or 2 Tbsp.) Cinnamon
1 tsp. Ground Nutmeg
1/2 tsp. Ground Cloves
1 cup Honey
1 & 1/3 cup Canola (or Peanut) Oil
2 Tbsp. Vanilla
