Here's a good recipe for the holiday season when you need to have healthy snack alternatives available.
Next time I make it, I'll cut the sugar and fat and give you an updated, more healthy recipe. I've never made granola this way before and when trying a new recipe for the first time, I try to stick as close to the original as I can. The next time I make it, I start cutting out and substituting so that I can compare it to the original. Does anyone have a Low Fat/Low sugar granola recipe with simple ingredients that tastes good?
Makes about 2 qts.
6 C. rolled oats
½ C. brown sugar
1 C. coconut
1/3 C. sesame seeds
¼ C. sunflower seeds
½ C. raisins (or other dried fruit - I used dried cranberries)
1 C. nuts, chopped (I used peanuts)
Mix all ingredients except raisins. Stir in and coat thoroughly with:
½ C. oil
2 tsp. vanilla
1/3 C. honey
Spread on cookie sheet and bake at 350 F for 25 min. Add raisins or other dried fruit and bake 5 more min.
For Gluten Free, make sure your oats are gluten free or use other gluten-free grain flakes. You can also flake your own grains with a grain flaker like the one below (Bosch also makes one that attaches to the mixer).
