Spicy Cranberry Granola

One of my favorite breakfast is a plain yogurt with a topping of granola or fresh fruit.If I can combine the granola and fruit all the better. My Spicy Cranberry Granola is one of my favorite recipes, and can be used on yogurt, ice cream or just a bowl of fruit, I have even sprinkled some on a salad and it was fantastic! In addition to being a great granola mix, it makes a great gift for a friend or family member. My friends and family just love getting a lovely jar of this granola for a hostess, birthday or christmas gift.

Add the vegetable oil and honey, then mix well until the oil and honey have been completely incorparated.
I used a stoneware rimmed baking sheet, but you can use any rimmed baking sheet.
Pour your mixed granola mix onto the baking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, at the half way point, stir the mix and return it to the oven.
Remove the mix from the oven and cool completely.
