Tried an amazing recipe over the weekend for Granola. Can be eaten plain or I love to put it in my yogurt in the morning. Instead of using the cranberries I substituted it for dried cherries. This one is defiantly a keeper.
- 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
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.
