A very dear person shared this absolutely yummy granola recipe with me. It is so very easy to make and yes it is healthy! While many granola recipes have either lots of oil, sugar or butter this one does not.
3 cups old-fashioned organic oats
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
3 T. packed brown sugar
3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/3 cup honey
2 T. vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line rimmed large baking sheet with parchment. Mix first 7 ingredients in large bowl.
Stir honey and oil in saucepan over medium-low heat until smooth. Pour honey mixture over oat mixture; toss.
Spread on prepared sheet. Bake until golden, stirring every 10 minutes, about 40 minutes.
Stir granola; cool.
I like to use either Trader Joe's Organic oats or Bob's Red Mill Extra Thick Oats.
The possibilities are unlimited so enjoy! Oh, and of course this goes wonderfully on top of homemade yogurt with fresh summer fruit on top.
