This is a wonderful way to prepare granola at home. It tastes great and is not processed or full of high fructose corn syrup like the commercial brands. I love to sprinkle this over yogurt with strawberries or just snack on it during the day. This is low GI.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup pure floral honey
  • 6 cups old fashioned oats (not quick oats)
  • 34 cup pecans (or any other nut, such as almonds, walnuts, or cashews)
  • 14 cup ground flax seeds
  • 12 cup cashews
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup mixed dried blueberries (or any other combination of dried fruit, except dates) or 1 cup currants (or any other combination of dried fruit, except dates)

Directions

  1. Lightly coat a large baking pan (10"x9"x2 1/2") with nonstick spray. Add the honey.
  2. Place the pan in a cold over. Turn over to 350. Warm for 5 minutes or until honey has melted.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the oats, nuts, flaxseed, and cinnamon. Mix well.
  4. Remove the pan of melted honey from the oven. Add the oat mixture to the baking pan. Spread and turn to coat well with honey.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the oats are well toasted, turning every 5 to 6 minutes.
