Since we have started the Whole 30 diet we have made a real effort to eat healthier. Our granola recipe is a variation on one we found in the AARP magazine by Myra Goodman.
Above is a mixture of 5 Cups of rolled oats, 1 C of shelled sunflower seeds, 1 1/2 C chopped raw almonds, 1/2 C chopped pecans, 3 Tbsp cinnamon, 2 Tsp nutmeg, 1 C VT maple syrup, 1/3 C canola oil
Bake at 325 degrees for 25 mins, stir then bake additional 25mins on a lined baking sheet
After baking add dried fruit of your choice and mix...we added dried apricots, raisins, craisins and dates (total of 2 cups)
Let the mixture cool completely and store in a gal zip lock bag.
In the morning we have 1/3 C of granola with fruit like blueberries, strawberries, pineapple, raspberries, banana and almond milk. What a great way to start your day. This is wonderful with yogurt, also.
