Alton Brown's Granola

I've been wanting to make some granola for a few weeks now, and finally had a free night to try my hand at some. Alton Brown's Granola Recipe looked delicious and pretty easy to throw together, so it was right up my alley.

I mixed by oats, nuts and shredded coconut into a big bowl:

And then separately mixed together my wet ingredients along with salt and sugar.

It looked sticky and delicious before I had even tossed it in the oven.

From about 30 minutes on, my house started to smell amazing, and I was pretty excited to taste it every time I peeked in the oven to stir it all together.

Once I pulled it out, I mixed in dried cranberries instead of raisins and then left it to cool over night.

Yesterday morning I didn't even mind getting up at 7 to feed the baby, because I knew I had Greek yogurt topped with granola to look forward to.

This was AMAZING. I ate it for breakfast, for snack, and for dessert. And I'll do that again every day until it's gone.
