In the Kitchen:

Crunchy Granola
Regular Recipe:

1 cup packed dark brown sugar

½ cup water

4 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp salt

8 cups old fashioned rolled oats

2 cups chopped nuts or seeds

2 cups dried fruit

Preheat oven to 275. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. Combine brown sugar and water in a 4 cup microwave safe measuring cup (It will boil over if you use a smaller one, trust me). Microwave on high for 5 minutes until sugar is dissolved. Add vanilla extract and salt. Stir until salt dissolves. Place nuts and oats in a bowl and pour brown sugar mixture over them. Mix. Spread onto cookie sheets and squeeze granola into clumps as you put it on the sheets. Bake 45- 60 minutes until golden and crunchy. Add fruit and allow to cool. Store in an airtight container.

My changes:
1/4 cup Maple Syrup & !/4 cup Agave instead of brown sugar
omit vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
no fruit
