Home Made Granola

This Granola is amazingly addicting! I wanted to make my own granola so I searched on line and looked at several recipes and decided to make up my own.

It was so good I thought it was worth sharing!
You will need:

  • 8 cups of rolled oats
  • a 1/2 stick of butter
  • 1/2 cup of coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup of molasses
  • 1/2 cup of honey
  • 1/4 cup grape juice
  • 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup of ground flax meal
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of craisins
  • 1 cup of dried blueberries
  • 1 cup of chopped pecans
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
The first thing you need to do is melt your coconut oil and butter in a small sauce pan on the stove. Put 8 cups of oats in a large bowl add your melted oil and butter and stir well. Spread evenly on 2 cookie sheets. Put them in a 350* oven until oats are lightly toasted. Pull them out and pour them back into the large bowl.

Next you will want to take your molasses, brown sugar, grape juice and honey and put them in the small sauce pan over low heat until sugar is dissolved. You will want to keep stirring it. Then turn off the heat and add your vanilla.

Add your chips, nuts, cinnamon and berries to your oats. Mmmmmmm Looking yummy!
Then drizzle this sweet stickiness to your dry ingredients. 
 Mix well...........
Spray your foil covered cookie sheets with cooking spray and spread  the mixture evenly between the two pans. Place in a 325* oven for 20 minutes. 
Cut up into bars or............
Crumble it up and use it for topping your yogurt, ice cream, or put it in a baggie or a bowl and eat it just the way it is. Tastes so much better than store bought! I'm sure you could cut back on the sugar if your trying to cut calories. Or you can dig deep, pull up on that will power and refrain from eating too much! I'm diggin' deep! *Smile*
