-Oven-Baked Version-

Line two 15″ by 11″ jelly roll pans with parchment paper. Spread the granola out evenly on the pans and press the granola together. Bake at 300 for about 30 minutes or until golden brown, stirring every 15 minutes. Be careful not to burn.  I place the pans on the two middle racks of the oven and switch them around halfway after stirring. After cooling, store in an airtight container.
