This is a recipe of my Mom's that she has made for years. It is a favorite and a staple in our home growing up and now. It has also found a home on the menu at Camp Shetek where it is made by the ton! It's so famous, it has even made a cameo appearance in the music video 'Without Camp'. What? You've never seen that video? Well, here you go!

And here's the recipe:

Camp Granola
from Mom Judy

5 c oats
1 c coconut
3/4 c brown sugar
2 T cinnamon
1 t salt
3/4 c oil
3 T vanilla
1/2 c chopped nuts (opt)

Mix above ingredients. Bake on cookie sheet at 300 degrees for 1 hour, stirring every 20 min.

*And for a peanut butter version remove the 3/4 cup of oil, and instead melt 1 cup real peanut butter with 1/4 cup of oil and the 3/4 c brown sugar in a saucepan until smooth. Drizzle over rest of ingredients and mix well. Cooking time and temp are the same.

**Can be GF if you use GF oats
