The best way to start the day is with an amazing breakfast. My favorite is homemade granola. This is my Mom’s recipe and it is my favorite…(or haven’t I told you that it’s my favorite 😉 )
8 C large flaked oats 1 ½ – 2 C ribboned coconut 1 -2 C nuts and/or dried fruit (almonds, pacans, sunflower seeds, peanuts, walnuts, pumkin seeds, cranberries, raisons, ect…) ½ C honey ½ C (real) maple syrup (or all honey) 1 C oil 2 tsp vanilla
Combine last 4 ingredients and heat in microwave, stir well. Mix everything together. Mixture should be sticky and moist but not soggy.
I like to bake on parchment paper on 2 cookie sheets.
Preheat oven to 325 stir every 7 minutes for 21 minutes on middle rack switching pans back and forth with each stir. (or until golden)
Enjoy with milk or yogurt, fresh fruit and a hot cup of tea or coffee. (Store in an air-tight container)
The perfect start to any day!
p.s. it’s my favorite!
