My next contribution is this Lemon Honey Granola.  This is perfect for an after school snack or topping yogurt for breakfast.  Made with ingredients from Dixie Crystals, Taylor & Colledge, and Flahavan's you will take bite after bite wanting more.

Ingredients:
1 cup almonds, chopped
2 cups rolled oats (I used Flahavan's)
3 tbsp. vegetable oil
1/3 c. honey
1/3 c. packed brown sugar (I used Dixie Crystals
2 tsp. lemon extract (I used Taylor & Colledge's lemon extract paste) 

Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking liner.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together oats and almonds.  Set aside.
  4. In a small saucepan, mix the oil, honey, brown sugar, and extract.  Bring to a boil and stir to dissolve sugar.
  5. Remove from heat and pour over oats and almonds.  Mix until evenly coated.
  6. Spread the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes, stirring half way through.
  8. Let cool to room temperature, break into pieces, and store in an airtight container.
