Healthy Granola Recipe
This is a delicious and healthy granola recipe.
Granola, or muesli, as it is known in Europe, is a baked mix of oats, wheat germ, nuts, seeds and fruit.
You make it once, cool it, then keep it in the refrigerator or freezer. It keeps for months in the freezer, but won't be around anywhere near that long, it is so good.
Combine the oatmeal, wheat germ, walnuts, sesame seeds, coconut and dates in a 9 inch square shallow pan. Mix the honey and oil in a small saucepan and heat, stirring until mixed. Add the honey mixture to the cereal mixture and toss lightly.
Bake at 325°F, turning from the bottom with a spatula, every 5 minutes. Cook until lightly browned, about 20 minutes. Cool.
After the mixture has cooled, add the chopped dried apples and store it in covered containers in the refrigerator or freezer.
Serve with milk as a breakfast cereal or as a topping for creamy desserts or fruits. My favorite way to serve granola is to sprinkle it on plain yogurt and add fresh fruit such as blueberries or sliced strawberries for extra flavor and nutrition. Fabulous!
