    puppitypup's Note:

    With the ever increasing price of store-bought cereal, I decided it was time to come up with a homemade one. You may want to add nuts or dried fruits also. Store it in an airtight container. (I keep it in the cardboard oats canister in a zip-tied bag.)

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat oven to 350 degrees and spray 10x15 jelly roll pan with butter-flavor Pam. (I also spray both bowls and the spatula I use to mix the cereal, then nothing sticks and clean up is easy.).
    2. 2
      In a small bowl, mix together oil, syrup, honey, vanilla, cinnamon and salt. Pour over oats in a large bowl and mix thoroughly.
    3. 3
      Spread evenly in the pan, and bake for 10 minutes, stir and bake 9 more minutes. (If you use a dark pan, shorten cooking time by 1 or 2 minutes.).

      Made this one pretty much as written since I'm ALWAYS willing to add nuts & dried fruit (especially raisins &/or cranberries) just before I eat it! It's so easy to make this great-tasting cereal! However, since we do like sweets, I did take the hint from JoyfulCooking & added a 1/4 cup of brown sugar (then didn't add anymore when we actually put it in a bowl to eat)! Most definitely a keeper recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

      I had only quick oats and I check each 5 minutes in case it would burn. For us, that's sweet enough. No need to add more sweet. I omitted the salt. After I made them and they were cold, my son wanted a bowl with milk. He liked them. Thanks Puppitypup :) Made for PRMR tag game

      My husband and I both thought this was good but not quite sweet enough for our taste. I added about a third of a cup of brown sugar the second time around and it was much improved.
