old fashioned oats
( tops removed)
Preheat oven to 325°F Line a baking sheet with parchment or silpat.
Place the nuts into a small food processor and pulse to crumble (if you don't have a food processor, you can use a Ziploc bag and a rolling pin). Don’t overdo it, you don’t want them finely ground, just lightly chopped/crushed.
In a medium sized bowl combine the chopped nuts, oats, and cinnamon. Stir to combine and set aside.
Place the fresh strawberries, honey, and vanilla in a small food processor (or blender) and blend until pureed. Pour into oat/nut mixture. Toss/stir to combine.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat. Spread the granola in a single layer on top. Bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring every 5-7 minutes. Don’t be concerned if the granola seems mushy. Remove from the oven and let it sit and cool for one hour.
After the granola has cooled and become crunchy, fold in dried cranberries and store in a Ziploc bag. Enjoy as a cereal, snack, or over ice cream.
