Making attempt to get granola under 200 calories per 1/2 cup. This is a good recipe with plenty of flavor, even while cutting down on the fat and nuts. I added the flax seed in the last 10 minutes of baking, as I have read that heat destroys the nutritional value. Eliminating the flax seed would save 23 calories per 1/2 cup. Eliminating the coconut would save 16 calories per 1/2 cup. Adding another 1/2 cup nuts would add approximately 20 calories per 1/2 cup. You can use any dried fruit equal to 1.5 cups for the same calories. Bake on two pans, but watch for too much browning if you leave it too close to a heat source. Try to get both pans near the middle of the oven and switch from top to bottom rack when you take it out to stir.
A one dish dinner, that you can prepare in 30 minutes start to finish if you are fast at chopping. Avocado and cilantro provide the inspiration. You can substitute other veggies as desired. In the "most nutrients for the fewest calories" challenge this is a winner.
