I want to share a recipe for Granola with you. This is what I eat almost every day for breakfast. I think it has many ingredients that are healthy. Oats for heart health, craisens for urinary tract health, almonds for protein etc. One of the great things is this cereal will stay with you for hours. I make a double batch and keep it in the frig.
The nice thing is it is flexible and you can substitute for most of the ingredients
1/2 teaspoon (t) baking soda
2 c regular rolled oats (not instant)
1/2 c flaked coconut
1/2 c slivered almonds
3/4 c bite sized dried fruit ( I like Craisens)
3/4 c milled flax (very high in fiber)
1/4 c honey
1/4 c brown sugar
1/3 c Canola cooking oil
1 1/2 c Rice Krispie type cereal
1/2 t cinnamon
1 t vanilla
Mix all ingredients well. Place in an oven safe pan. I use a large roaster for a double batch. Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes. Stir well. Return to oven for 15 minutes.
I leave the granola in the oven to cool with the oven off and the door open so it can continue to crisp and brown. Just watch that it doesn't get too brown.
