Good morning! How was your weekend? For many, including my family and a lot of friends in the Midwest it was another cold, wet, snowy weekend. My friend Anita of Castles, Crowns and Cottages said she got 2 FEET of snow. I hate to even write this but it was 85 here on Saturday and I got a sunburn while planting my containers. Sunday it was hot, humid and rainy but no snow.
Since it was raining on Sunday I decided to use up some of the plethora of nuts, seeds and dried fruit that we have and make some granola. I make it to eat dry like a trail mix and as easy way to get my flax and chia seeds as well as healthy oats, nuts and fruit. But you can also sprinkle it on yogurt or eat it for breakfast with fresh fruit and milk.
Honey Fruit, Nuts and Seeds Granola
3 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup raw walnuts
1/3 cup ground flax seed
4 tablespoons chiaseeds
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup of dried fruit(I used cranberries and raisins)
1/2 cup of honey
3 tablespoon melted coconut oil
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup of coconut
Combine the oats, almonds, walnuts, flax seeds, chia seeds, cinnamon and salt in a mixing bowl. Stir in the dried fruit. Then stir in the coconut oil, honey, and the extract, mix well to coat. Spread the mixture evenly on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 300 for 15 minutes, then stir the mixture and rotate the pan, cook an additional 15 minutes, then sprinkle the coconut over the top and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Remove baking panfrom oven and let cool. Enjoy.
I hope that you have a great day!
