Penny’s Granola

My mother-in-law is an amazing cook! I definitely won in that area because every time I eat at her house it’s absolutely scrumptious!

When Mr. W and I were dating we passed by their house on the way to Lake Powell. We stopped in to say hello and Penny gave me a batch of this granola to take on the road. I thought it was kinda random but took it graciously. O my goodness I didn’t realize then that she was handing me a pot of gold!! I never was a granola fan until Penny’s granola. Everyone who tries it becomes an addict instantly!


  • 2 1/2 cup Rice Krispies
  • 2 1/2 cup Oats (I’ve used both quick and old fashioned)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 cup craisins
  • 1 cup sweetened coconut flake
  • 1-2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Mix together all dry ingredients
  3. Add vanilla and mix
  4. Slowly pour sweetened condensed milk over the mixture while stirring
  5. Spread out on a greased cookie sheet and put in oven
  6. (Bake times vary on how you like granola) chewy/soft granola: 9-11 minutes or firm/toasted: 15-18 minutes. I prefer a more toasted granola and so I bake it for 11 minutes and then stir/flip it on the pan and then bake it until it is a brown color.
  7. Store in gallon size bags
