Paige’s Granola Recipe!

by Bethany Vessey, Registered Dietitian on January 21, 2013 · 3 comments

Soooo, how are the challenges going??? Only 3 days left before I tack on another nutrition challenge! I hope everyone is starting feel as if the water is no longer a challenge.

As promised here is Paige’s super yummy granola recipe. I planning to make it today myself along with my “No Ordinary Soup” recipe! Maybe this is nesting haha! I am pumped as 1 serving of Paige’s granola will meet my Omega 3 challenge and give me 4 grams of fiber; pair that with 2 servings of the soup at 6 grams of fiber there is 1/3 of my fiber intake in 2 meals! Not to mention I will likely throw 1 cup of blueberries on the granola with yogurt for breakfast which would add another 6 grams of fiber!!! 16 grams of fiber in 2 meals, easy peasy!

Thanks for the share Paige!

Talk to everyone soon!

Paige’s Granola

52 Servings

1/4 cup servings

6cups oats
1cup almonds
1cup hazelnuts
1cup peacans
1/2cup chia seeds (sometimes I use hemp hearts)
1/2cup ground flax seed
1/2cup whole flax seed
1/2cup oat bran

Mix together a 1/4 cup oil and 1 cup natural honey with a tbsp of
cinnamon and a teaspoon of vanilla
once it is well mixed stir into the granola mixture.

I spread it over two cookie sheets nice and thin and bake it at 325
for 20-25min. When it comes out it is still a little soft. That's when
I add a cup of raisins and a cup of either dried cranberries or dried
cherries (depends on whats in my cupboard!) I don't put them in the
oven because they get hard and hurt your teeth! I also chop dates and
throw them in sometimes too.. this is really a granola that just comes
from what is in my cupboard!

So once the fruit is added in I let it cool on the counter until it is
crunchy! Then I put it in mason jars or ziplock bags. OKeeee hope you
folks like :) I just had my fresh batch for breakfast and it was
delightful!

Any ideas what the hazelnut and pecans can be replaced with? Just more almonds?

Any other nut that you are able to eat. There are no rules. Just keep the portions the same! Hope you enjoy! I have been loving it!

This is so good! Plus, it leaves a great aroma in the house!
