Orange Granola

I had this sort-of tasty food day dream this morning.  I had thoughts of oranges & oatmeal combining together to make a delicious granola.  I made it a reality after dinner tonight.

Orange Granola

I wanted to keep it very simple & I wanted the granola to have mucho orange flavor.

I made up a orange simple syrup that I would use as the liquid ingredient to combine the dry ingredients.

I added Oatmeal, Shredded Coconut {because my husband & I like the added crunch & texture}, and Golden Raisens {because that's what I had in my pantry}.  If I had some almonds, I think I would have added that to the bunch.

I threw everything on a greased baking sheet and baked it for about an hour.  I made sure to mix it up every 15-20 minutes to keep it from sticking.

After getting the granola to my desired color, I couldn't wait, so I grabbed a glass, and layered the granola with some vanilla yogurt.

Gah!  It tasted so good!  I was even a nice Mommy and shared the delcious treat with my two younger children.  I am very excited to eat this treat over the next couple of days :)
