I do not recommend granola since it is most often made with a lot of concentrated sugar of some sort and poor quality oil (remember any product made with non-organic soy or canola or corn–their oils too–is very likely made from genetically modified seed). Also, the rolled oats in granola are high in phytate, a mineral binder that makes mineral absorption difficult for the gut. (A healthy way to have oatmeal is to soak rolled oats overnight, rinse and drain, and then cook in water for at least 20 minutes until creamy.) Here is a healthy version of granola.
4 cups of dried organic coconut “chips”(if not available use the smaller flakes)
2 cups soaked walnut halves or 1 cup sunflower and 1 cup pumpkin seeds (soak the walnuts or seeds in plenty of water overnight-rinse very well and drain before use)
3 Tbsp. honey
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Optional: raisins or other fried fruit chopped into small pieces.
Place all ingredients in a large bowl and stir well until mixture is homogenous. Spread in a baking pan (about 9″ by 12”). Bake at 250 degrees F until light gold and dried. This may take an hour or more depending on your oven. Stir every 15 minutes so it browns evenly and doesn’t overbake on the sides or bottom. You can also dry the mixture in a food dehydrator for “raw” granola. Allow the granola to cool completely before storing in a glass jar. Keep refrigerated.
