WomensBest_Recipes

Ingredients:

Keep this nutrient-packed homemade granola on hand for a quick-fix breakfast or for snacking. Munch on it dry, add milk, or stir it into yogurt.

 

2 cups regular oats
1/3 cup ground flaxseed
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup chopped slivered almonds
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/3 cup orange juice
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cooking spray
1/3 cup dried cranberries

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 300°.

 

Combine first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl.

 

Combine orange juice, honey, and brown sugar in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat just until sugar dissolves, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; stir in oil and vanilla.

 

Pour honey mixture over oat mixture, stirring to coat. Spread mixture in a thin layer onto a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 300° for 10 minutes; stir well. Bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Spoon granola into a bowl; stir in dried cranberries. Cool completely.

 

Note: Store completely cooled granola in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.
