Nicole’s Healthy Homemade Granola

imageI love Nature’s Path Pumpkin Seed Granola, but at $3-4 per box, it was starting to get a little expensive.  So, I decided to make my own granola, and it is delish!  Here is the recipe:image

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups Old-fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • image1/2 cup chopped almonds or walnuts
  • 1/3 cup ground flax seed (I like Bob’s Red Mill, pictured above)
  • 1/3 cup wheat germ (I like Kretschmer, pictured right)
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.  Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Spread granola onto cookie sheet and cook in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until desired crunchiness. 
  4. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

The result? A delicious and crunchy granola, good enough to give away as a holiday gift!

I like to enjoy my granola on top of plain, fat-free yogurt, with a drizzle of honey and a chopped Fuyu persimmon.  Heaven!
