20th 52! Granola Trail Mix

I probably had this recipe done in 20 minutes tops. Now I have the problem of keeping people from stealing it! I really don't like dried fruit of any kind so I didn't add any. I added chocolate chips and peanut butter chips and coconut. But feel free to add dried fruit to it (if you like that kind of thing.). This is great to munch on all day. Or for the camping trip or hike in the woods (not that you do that very often in the middle of winter...). Point is this tastes great and is super fast and easy to make.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Lots of chocolate chips
  • Lots of peanut-butter chips
  • Lots of sweetened coconut
Preheat oven to 350. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oats then cook and stir until starting to brown and crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and spread out on a cookie sheet. Turn the oven off and put the cooked oats in. Melt the butter in the same pan over medium heat. Stir in the honey and brown sugar; cook, stirring constantly, until bubbly. Return the oats to the pan. Add vanilla and cinnamon. Cook and stir for another 5 minutes or so. Pour out onto the cookie sheet and spread out. Put back in the oven (it should still be off but still hot. In about 3 min. take out and cool. Once cool, transfer to an airtight container and stir in the chips and coconut. Any additional nuts and fruit can be stirred in at this time also.
