First, let me say my granola needs a name.  So share your suggestions.  

After many requests from friends and neighbors, I decided to publish my granola recipe.  Now they can make their own!  

This batch was made for us but also to gift to a friend who just had a baby.  I am re-using a glass juice jar.  I just need to add a tag (once I have a name) and viola.  

My secret ingredients are dried pineapple and peanut butter.

You can get the exact recipe from my blog http://chicaenglish.blogspot.com/2011/10/granola-goodness-recipe.html.  

It is pretty simple.....just mix oatmeal with the additions of your choice (dried fruit, nuts, etc.)  

Combine and whisk your wet ingredients until smooth.

Then combine dry and wet ingredients and mix.  Use a wooden spoon or your hands to get nice clumpy pieces.  

Then spread in a single layer on very lightly oiled pans and bake at 200 for 3 hours.

you could always call them granola bites, since its basically granola bars but in bite size pieces instead.

so I'm looking at the page and while i am copying the recipe i had a few questions.

1. is the canola oil measurement 1 Cup or 1/2 cup?
2. I am guessing this is a crunchy granola versus a chewy. 

I like the granola bites name though.

It is 1/2 a cup of canola oil.

Also you can make it chewy by not baking as long.  I like crunchy granola b/c I mix it with yogurt and fruit.  It is also what I take for snacks when I travel.

Since this uses multiple baking sheets why not make 1/2 crunchy and 1/2 chewy.  Then store in different containers.  It is a win-win.
