Almond Crunch Granola

Since we have been searching for healthy snack substitutes that we will actually enjoy, I was thrilled to find this awesome recipe for granola.  

This granola is packed with good ingredients, well as vitamin E. It's also low in sodium. Eat a handful or sprinkle it on berries or yogurt.


Notes, Tips & Suggestions 
*To toast almonds: Spread almonds in a single layer in shallow pan. Place in cold oven, toast at 350 ° F, 9-11 minutes, stirring occasionally, until lightly toasted. Cool on counter.

  • 1 cup slivered almonds, toasted*
  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats (either old-fashioned or quick cooking)
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup almond or vegetable oil
    1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Combine toasted almonds with oats, coconut and cinnamon.
    2. Whisk honey with oil and drizzle over almond-oat mixture, tossing to mix well.
    3. Bake 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from oven, loosen with spatula and cool.

That actually looks good. I might leave out the coconut though.

Can't wait to try this out Joyce! I was thinking of adding more coconut, but it is one of my favorite things!

Hope your recovery is going well :)
