Butterscotch Granola (I know YUM! Right?)

Ooooo tried a recipe today.  One of my own design thank you very much!  I just started playing around with my main recipe and here is what I came up with.

Butterscotch Granola

5 cups quick cooking oats(Or whatever variety of grains you would choose; oats, wheat germ, rice flour, barley, coconut, etc.  Make your largest contribution be oats and then just add extra of the other grains to make 5 cups)

1 ts cinnamon
dash salt
1 stick butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp butter flavored extract

Butter a large cookie sheet.  In it place  your grains, cinnamon, and salt.  Mix well.  Put aside.  In a sauce pan melt the butter.  Add in the sugar, honey, vanilla, and butter extract.  Heat just until melted well and sugar is dissolved.  Pour syrup mixture over your grains.  Mix with a spoon as much as you can,  but then go thru it with your hands to make sure it is really well incorporated (Wash hands first please!).  Spread out evenly on the cookie sheet and bake in a 350 oven for 10 mins.  Take the cookie sheet out and stir thoroughly then put back in the oven for 5 min.  Take from oven but don't stir.  Let it cool where it sits.  Once cool you can store it in an airtight container.
