I got this recipe from Hillbillyhousewife.com, but I read the original recipe wrong and only put in half the margarine it called for. This recipe reflects what I did. It served my family of 4 with enough left over for one more serving.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt the margarine in a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add the honey and salt.
  3. Heat the honey briefly with the margarine and then add the oatmeal. Stir.
  4. Turn the mixture onto an ungreased 9 by 13-inch cookie sheet. Spread the granola out evenly and bake it at 375° for 10 minutes.
  5. It should be a toasty brown. Remove it from the oven and allow to cool and crisp up in the pan.
  6. Store it in a clean coffee can or sealed canister.
  7. Add 1/2 cup nuts and dried fruit if desired after granola is cool.
  8. Serve with milk, on yogurt, or eat by the handfull. Whatever suits you best.
