|3 cupsrolled oats (old fashioned not quick)|
|1/2 cupchopped pecans|
|1/2 cupchopped almonds|
|1/4 cupflax seeds|
|2 tablespoonswheat germ|
|1/4 cupbrown sugar|
|1/2 cupplain unsweetened applesauce|
|1 teaspoonVanilla extract|
|1 tablespoonVegetable or canola oil|
|1/2 cupcoconut shavings|
|1/2 cupdried cranberries|
Healthy Granola Preparation
Preheat oven to 300 Degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, nuts, flax seeds, wheat germ, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside
In a small saucepan, warm the applesauce, brown sugar, honey, vanilla extract, and oil over low heat
Add the applesauce mixture to the oat mixture and stir until everything is evenly coated.
Spread the mixture onto two baking sheets. Make sure you have an even layer and the pans aren't crowded. Bake for 30-45 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until the granola is a golden brown color.
Remove from oven and add in the coconut shavings and dried friuts.
Allow to cool completely before eating or storing in an airtight container. The granola may seem like it's a bit mushy in parts when it comes out of the oven, but once it cools it will harden and develop that wonderful crunch granola is known for.
You can add just about anything you desire to the mixture to make it healthier.
