Granola!

Hi everyone! I'm still working on finishing my post from the other day about "diets" but today I'd like to share a great recipe with you all.

This yummy granola recipe was adapted from My Baking Addiction. I added a few more ingredients for an ever healthier “punch”. Enjoy this granola on it's own with milk; sprinkled on top of yogurt; or in a home-made berry parfait.

Directions

Mix together in a very large bowl:

4 cups of oats
½ cup ground almonds
1 tbsp wheat germ
¼ cup ground flax seed
½ cup chopped pecans
½ cup coconut
2 tsp cinnamon

Combine the following in a saucepan:

¼ cup brown sugar
3 tbsp vegetable oil
¼ cup honey
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla

Place to the side:

1/3 cup dried blueberries
1/3 cup craisins

Heat the brown sugar mixture on medium until it slowly bubbles up to the surface.

Working quickly (and with a spatula) pour wet ingredients over your oat mixture.

Spread as evenly as possible in a rimmed cookie sheet. Place in a preheated 350 oven and bake for approximately 15 minutes or until golden, stirring occasionally throughout.

Once you’ve taken the granola out of the oven, add the dried fruit to the granola and mix! You now have a yummy bunch of granola to eat and share!

This granola was SO delicious, I was lucky to try some of Stacy's batch. So good my husband and I just ate it dry as a snack while we watched tv. Thanks for the recipe Stace!
