Granola

In honor of Fight Back Fridays over at Food Renegade (as well as Vegetarian Foodie Fridays, Friday Feasts, and Foodie Friday) I thought I would share with you this idea for your own fresh, homemade granola. I have been making my own granola for a long time. The flavor is so vastly better than most commercially available granola that it really is worth making yourself. The good news is that it is also easy. I like to mix and match the flavors, and play around with different dried fruit and nut combinations: cherry almond, cinnimon raisin, blueberry giner (with chuThe possibilities are really endless. Here old fashioned oats are mixed with sliced almonds, sweetened dried coconut, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground ginger, and a pinch of salt, and then tossed with vegetable oil, honey, and pure vanilla extract, and then baked. This is great on its own as a snack, as a cold cereal, as a hot cereal made with steamed milk, or as a topping for yogurt or ice cream. It is healthy, sweet, crunchy, nutty, and satisfying. Enjoy!
