Vanilla Scented Granola
from epicurious – excellent and addictive. Easy to make many batches.

Nonstick vegetable oil spray
4 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup sliced almonds
1 cup pecans, split in half (I added these to the recipe)
1/2 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons vanilla extract

Position rack in middle of oven and preheat to 300°F. Lightly spray large baking sheet with nonstick spray. Mix next 6 ingredients in large bowl.
Combine oil, honey, and sugar in small saucepan; bring to simmer over medium heat.
Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Pour hot liquid over oat mixture; stir well. Using hands, toss mixture until thoroughly mixed.(okay- I use a good LeCreuset scraper and mix it alot)
Spread granola on prepared baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes. Transfer sheet to rack; cool granola completely. (Can be made 2 weeks ahead. Store in airtight container at room temperature.)
Makes about 8 cups. (enough for 2 quart sized zip-lock baggies full)
