I've been making some homemade granola.  I'm saving packaging and trips to the store, and of course it saves money too (yea).
My prices:
Brown Sugar 2lbs $1.49
Syrup 27oz $2.98
Oil 96 T $2.69          
Oats 15 C $1.99     
Raisins 3 C $1.69        

With my recipe that comes to $1.12 for a 6 serving batch.  As opposed to $3.27 for an 8 serving package.

  • Mix 1/4 C packed brown sugar, 3 1/2 C Oats, and 1/4 t salt.
  • Mix 2 T vegetable oil (I use canola) and 1/4 C syrup.
  • Combine mixtures, spread on lightly greased cookie sheet, bake at 300 degrees for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through.
  • After cooled,  put in airtight container with 1/2 C raisins.
We use it so fast that I double the recipe and store in an empty oatmeal container, and we still use it up before it gets stale.
