Yummy Granola!

I have been making granola now for a while, because it's so much better tasting then store bought ones. We use it on everything pretty much and it's great for just snackin and eating alone with some milk......yum

Yummy Old Fashioned Granola

1 tub of old fashioned oats

11/2 c. of brown sugar

1/2 c. of sugar

1 box of yellow cake mix

3 T. ground cinnamon (more if you like it cinnamony)

1/2 c. honey

3/4 c. maple syrup

1 stick of melted butter

Mix all together until the oats become crumbly. You may have to add more honey to this if it seems alittle dry. Spread out evenly on cookie sheet. (you will do this a few times) and bake for 30-40 min. until lightly brown @ 350 degrees. Let cool. You can at this point add dried blueberries, craisins, coconut, pecans whatever really to the granola.....enjoy!

This looks really yummy! I would have never thought to use a cake mix. I just love new ideas! This is a good one.
