Some days I just feel fat!
Let’s face it. I’m a girl who LOVES to bake.
So it’s pretty much inevitable I’ll have those days.
Lately I’ve been trying to eat better.
Be more conscious about the foods I’m putting into my body.
This has lead to a slight obsession with granola.
Now people usually love one of two types of granola.
Granola chunks that cling together or individual granola pieces perfect for sprinkling.
I live in the second camp.
I don’t want big chunky pieces.
I want to be able to sprinkle my granola over yogurt.
Or pour milk over it and eat it like cereal.
Even grab a handful as a snack.
I want you to enjoy some granola too!
2 1/2 C. Whole Wheat Quick Cooking Oats
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Nutmeg
1/2 tsp. Ginger
1/2 C. Honey
1/2 C. Walnuts (feel free to substitute your favorite or mix several varieties)
1/2 C. Oil
1/2 – 1 C. Dried fruit (I used cranberries, use what you like)
Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with aluminum foil. Leave enough foil on the ends to allow you to pick the foil up off of the baking sheet once baking is complete. Pre-heat your oven to 350. In a large bowl mix nuts, spices, oil, and honey. Spread the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. Stir frequently during baking. The edges will brown very quickly. Remove from oven and lift the foil from the baking sheet to stop the baking process. Allow granola to cool. Stir in fruit. Sore in an airtight container.
