1/4 c. vegetable oil
3/4 c. chopped onion
Saute slowly until onions are transparent, not brown.
3/4 c. ketchup
3/4 c. water
3 Tbsp. worchestershire sauce
3 Tbsp. of brown sugar (fyi, I use the same amount of sugar and tint it with molasses to substitute for brown sugar since we can't get it here, and it works great!)
2 Tbsp. mustard (American-style, prepared-- not the spice)
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/4-1/3 c. lemon juice (fresh is best)
Saute over low heat until thickened.
My friend says this is absolutely delicious, and it sounds easy-peasy. I hope to make it soon. Enjoy!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Dump into a big bowl, and stir until the oats are evenly coated:
- 10 cups rolled oats
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 1/4 cup real maple syrup (you can use the fake stuff... we did and it was tasty!)
As with the other granolas I posted about, spread it all out on a large cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes, taking it out every five minutes to stir it around, and keep it in an airtight container shortly after taking it out of the oven, so it stays very crunchy.
If you're reading this and thinking "that sounds too sweet for cereal", well, think of it as a snack then -- it's very crispy and when you're crunching it up in your mouth it really does taste like you're eating some kind of fancy maple cookie.
