Breakfast

Granola (with Gluten-free Version)

Ingredients

 

4-½ c. Organic rolled oats (use gluten-free oats to make gluten-free granola)

1 t. Pink sea salt

1 t. Vanilla

1/3 c. Softened butter or melted coconut oil

½ c. Honey

⅓ c. Brown sugar (pure maple syrup or coconut sugar)

2c. Combination of: dried cranberries, raisins, flax or chia seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkins seeds, nuts, or shredded coconut


 

 

Directions

 

Mix and press into 2 cookie sheets.  Bake @ 300 degrees for 15 minutes. Take out & stir then bake another 15 minutes. Repeat one more time.  Don’t overbake, though.  They should be only light brown on top. Let cool. 

I add chocolate chips to make a healthy trail mix or leave plain to make a healthy breakfast cereal.

For a chocolate treat, melt dark chocolate in a 8x8 glass dish and press granola into pan. Let cool, then put in the freezer for 30 minutes until hard. Cut into squares or break up and put in a glass dish. Bet you can't eat just one.
