The biggest kid goes through phases of foods that are consumed in mass quantities. Right now it’s granola, so let’s make some!

Here is the recipe I use:

Mix:

  • 2 cups old fasioned oats
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup flax seed
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup pepitas (the inside bits from pumpkin seeds)
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup cranberries
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg

Boil:

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup water

Mix your dry ingredients

Boil your sugar mix (mine boiled over. Oops. Also its hot…)

Mix your boiled sugar with your oaty goodness

Press into a baking sheet (I used parchment paper to avoid getting my hands sticky)

Bake @ 325 for 20 mins, then break apart.
