Better Nutrition - - 80 YEARS YOUNG -

Serves 12 Did we get you in the mood for some home­made gra­nola? It’s not hard to make, not to men­tion that it’s tastier and less ex­pen­sive than store- bought gra­nola. Here’s a recipe we love, adapted from

Salad Peo­ple by Mol­lie Katzen. 2 cups rolled oats

1 cup mixed seeds ( sun­flower, pump­kin, sesame, etc.)

1 cup chopped nuts ( wal­nuts, pecans, al­monds, pis­ta­chios, hazel­nuts, etc.)

½ tsp. salt ½ cup honey

⅓ cup co­conut oil

1 Tbs. vanilla ex­tract

1 cup as­sorted dried fruit, chopped ( raisins, dried blue­ber­ries, dried cran­ber­ries, etc.) Pre­heat oven to 350° F. Com­bine oats, seeds, nuts, and salt in bowl. Whisk to­gether honey, oil, and vanilla, and stir into dry in­gre­di­ents. Spread gra­nola on bak­ing sheet coated with non­stick cook­ing spray.

Bake 15– 18 min­utes, or un­til golden brown, stir­ring once or twice dur­ing bak­ing. Cool on tray un­til dry and crunchy.

Break into bite- sized pieces, and stir in dried fruit. Store in air­tight con­tainer.
