Submitted by: LTCARTWRIGHT

Introduction

Homemade granola, no extra oil added. Homemade granola, no extra oil added.
Number of Servings: 3

Ingredients

    1c rolled oats
    2T wheat germ (use toasted or untoasted)
    2T flax meal (or whole grain flour/meal of choice)
    1/4c walnuts, crushed
    1/4c coconut shreds or flakes (I used unsweetened)
    1/2 c raisins (or dried fruit of choice)
    1/2c sunflower seeds (or pumpkin seeds)
    1t cinnamon
    1/8t salt
    2ozs unsweetened apple sauce
    1T molasses, blackstrap
    1T honey or agave nectar
    1t vanilla extract
    2ozs water

Tips

Check mixture after 8 minutes. If it is browning too quickly but not hardening, decrease temperature and bake longer. If you did not taste "uncooked" batter for sweetness or you want it sweeter, after 8 mins spoon or squeeze more honey or other sweetener on top. If you do not like your fruits moist, then add them in the final 6 to 8 mins of cooking time.


Directions

Preheat oven or toaster oven to 350deg.

In separate bowl mix together well applesauce, water, molasses, honey or agave nectar and vanilla extract (wet ingredients). In another bowl mix all dry ingredients together EXCEPT dried fruit.

Combine wet ingredients a little at a time into the dry until dry mixture is together but not soggy (I had about 2/3 c of the wet mixture left over.) Spread evenly on cookie sheet with sides that is sprayed with non-stick spray and bake for 15 minutes or until you've reached your desired crunchiness.

Place in bowl or container and add dried fruit. When cooled, but in Ziploc bags or glass container. Store up to 2 weeks in air tight container.

Serving Size: Makes 3, 1-cup servings or 6, 1/2-cup servings
