Granola is great for a quick, hearty breakfast and it is super easy to make. The basic recipe that follows came from my wife’s mom. I often modify it with different oils or flavorings.
4 cups Organic rolled oats
1/3 Cup organic oil (I like to use raw organic coconut oil the most)
1 cup nuts or seeds
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/3 cup Organic maple syrup
Mix all the ingredients in a mixing bowl thoroughly and then put in a baking pan.
Place pan in a preheated 250 degree oven for 45 minutes. Remove stir and replace into oven for 45 minutes.
Once the granola cools I often add raisins or other dried berries. Shredded coconut is also a good addition.
To ensure complete avoidance of genetically modified ingredients only use organic ingredients.
