Sample Recipe: AmaTierra’s Low Fat Home Made Granola
Makes 8 Cups
- 4 Cups Oats (2 cups whole, 2 cups quick cooking oats)
- ½ Cup Sunflower Seeds
- ½ Cup chopped Walnuts
- ½ Cup chopped Almonds
- ½ Cup dried Coconut
- ½ Cup Vegetable Oil
- ½ Cup Honey
- ½ Tsp Cinnamon
- Optional: ½ Cup dried fruit
Measure out oil and honey into a large mixing bowl. Add oats, seeds, and nuts and mix everything together very well. Bake on a baking sheet at 300°F for 20-30 minutes, turning frequently. Granola is ready when everything is evenly golden brown. Remove from oven, and toss in chopped dried fruit if desired. Cool and store in an air-tight container.
Enjoy with milk or yogurt or as a topping for fruit.
The great thing about this recipe is that it is extremely versatile. You can choose flaked or rolled oats, grains, wheat, barley or a combination of all. You can also choose any sort of nut or seed you’d like: walnuts, pecans, almonds, brazil nuts, hazel nuts, pumpkin, sesame, sunflower seeds, or anything else you like. And dried fruits such as shredded coconut, raisins, dates, berries or any others add another dimension to your granola.
Nutritional Note: Even though AmaTierra’s granola is low in fat and made with healthy ingredients, do not be fooled into believing it is a low-calorie food. Especially if you prepare it with dried fruits, it is wiser to refrain from eating granola every day, and eat oatmeal more often if you are watching your weight. Oats give you plenty of protein and soluble fiber to improve and slow down digestion, which also makes you feel fuller for longer.
