Honey-Almond Granola

I liked this granola recipe in that it was super simple, and used butter instead of oil.  I like to do that sometimes for a change of flavor.  I added some cinnamon to this.  This recipe is no longer available on the original website I got it from, for some reason.

Honey-Almond Granola
adapted from here, although no longer available
330 g (4 cups) rolled (old-fashioned) oats*
80 g (1 cup) sliced or whole almonds
80 g (1 cup) shredded coconut
1/2 tsp salt
100 g (1/3 cup) honey
60 g (1/4 cup) butter
60 g (1/4 cup) water

1.  Preheat oven to 200°C (390°F).  In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, almonds, coconut and salt.
In a saucepan, melt butter and honey. Stir until they no longer separate then add the water. Pour honey and butter mixture over the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl. Combine until absorbed.

2.  Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and spread the granola mixture evenly.  Bake for 20 minutes. Remove the baking sheet from the oven after 10 minutes and turn the granola.  If not browned enough for your liking, leave in the oven, watching carefully, until done.  When cooled completely, store in an airtight container.

*Can be made gluten-free with the appropriate oats.
