Here’s a great recipe with oats that I love to include as part of a healthy breakfast or snack:
Making your own granola is easy, saves tons of money and is world’s healthier. So just do it!
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Place the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir until thoroughly combined. Add the molasses, oil, and vanilla and stir until the dry ingredients are evenly coated. Spread the mixture evenly on a baking sheet with sides and bake at 325 degrees until lightly brown and toasted (about 25-30 minutes). For even cooking, carefully stir the granola mixture every 10 minutes. Remove the granola from the oven and allow it to cool – it will become crunchier as it cools down. Store the granola in an airtight container at room temperature or in the freezer in a Ziplock bag. Makes about eight cups. One serving is 2/3 of a cup.
*Feel free to omit or add any nuts, seed or dried fruit to your liking.
