Place in the oven. Stir every 8 minutes or so. The goal is to get the mixture as evenly browned as possible. It usually takes about 25 minutes for mine to cook.  When done, remove from oven, and cool.

Store in an airtight container. The granola will keep up to 2 weeks. Store in the fridge to keep longer. I like to add in bits of dried fruit right before serving. Enjoy!
