1 T. cinnamon (2 if you really love it)
4 cups oats
1 1/2 sticks butter or margarine, melted (I did take it down from a whole cup in the original recipe! Next time, maybe I'll take it down another 2 T)
1 cup brown sugar (or honey if preferred)
Heat oven to 300 degrees. Mix all four ingredients together in a large bowl. Pour onto a cookie sheet and bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes for even baking. Optional add-ins: craisins, raisins, dried fruits, nuts, coconut. We love raisins and coconut. Sliced almonds would be great too. Add the last 15 minutes of baking. Enjoy!
Shoot- this was so great to snack on! It was like the oat topping on top of Apple Crisp. Probably a bad sign, right? Still, it's hearty, "natural", cheaper than cereal, and the kids like it! Next time I will see if I can take down the brown sugar to 1/2 cup and still be sweet enough. We'll see...we sure love our brown sugar.
