Healthy Home Made Granola

Homemade Granola

Submitted by Michelle Forrester

My friend and frugal living guru Dorothy gave me a recipe for home made granola and I am in love. Dorothy said making your own granola was easy and so much healthier than out of a box because you get to control how much sugar is in it. It is now my go to cold breakfast. Whether it’s with milk or yogurt and fresh fruit, I am in heaven and my tummy is happy until lunch.

Home Made Granola

Mix together in a large roaster:

4 ½  cups rolled oats

½     cup sunflower seeds

½     cup ground flax

½     cup sesame seeds

½     cup chopped walnuts

½    cup chopped almonds

½     cup pumpkin seeds

Mix in a small pan:

½ cup honey

½ cup olive oil

Stir together well while heating. Do not boil.

Pour hot mixture over dry and mix together well.

Bake @ 275 C for 1hr, stirring every 15 minutes.

Cool and store in airtight containers.

You could also leave the nuts whole and add some dried fruit after baking and it would make a great trail mix!
