by Meg on November 16, 2009

Granola Recipe:

- 2 cups of oats
- 1/4 cup of agave nectar or 1/2 cup of brown sugar
- 1 tsp. cinammon
- 1/2 cup of chopped almonds
- 1/4 cup of oat bran
- 1/2 cup of raisins(or any other dried fruit)
- 1/8 cup of shredded coconut
- 1 tbls. of canola oil or olive oil
- cooking spray or rub canola oil(for baking sheet)
Add ins:
-1/4 cup of cocao nibs
-1/4 cup of pecans, walnuts, etc

Preheat oven to 350F. Place the oats and chopped almonds onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes to toast. Place all other ingredients in a bowl and mix. When oats and almonds are toast, add them into the bowl. Bring down oven temperature to 300F. Spray pan/coat with oil and place mixture on cookie sheet. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until slightly brown in color. Let cool, then break apart into pieces. I keep my granola in the freezer, I think it stay fresher this way.

What I eat my granola with:
- low fat yogurt with a client’s YUMMY peach and organge jam
- by itself in between class
- warmed in the microwave for 30 seconds and with about 1/4 cup of either pumpkin or vanilla ice cream(Breyer’s if my favorite)

*** some gluten intolerant people can’t have oats, due to contamination. If needed make sure oats are clean(aka- haven’t been mixed with other grains) before using them****
