Introduction

As far as sweeteners go, molasses is a pretty healthy one. This granola offers a good amount of calcium, fiber and flavor! As far as sweeteners go, molasses is a pretty healthy one. This granola offers a good amount of calcium, fiber and flavor!

Ingredients

    5 cups oats
    5 T blackstrap molasses
    1/8 cup raw sugar
    1/8 cup canola oil
    4 T reduced sugar fruit preserves
    1/8 cup water
    2 T cinnamon
    2 T sesame seeds
    3 T flaxseeds
    1/8 cup sunflower seeds
    1/8 cup pumpkin seeds
    4 T dried blueberries

Directions

Mix oil, sugar, molasses, cinnamon, water and preserves in a bowl. Add oats, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds and mix well.
Spread on baking sheet and bake at 250 for 75 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes or so.
When it's done baking, add flaxseeds, sesame seeds and blueberries.
Allow to cool before placing in resealable container. This granola is fairly low in fat, and it doesn't stick together in large clusters.

    I didn't have the pumpkin or sunflower seeds or preserves but this granola was good anyway! It had about the right touch of sweetness and I really love molasses so this was great! I'll be making it again. It's a good basic recipe with which to create your own granola. - 10/14/08

    I see why that person made the comment about 12 tsp = 1/4 cup. In the recipe you call of 1/8 cup raw sugar but if you check the indredient details it lists it as 12 tsp. And 12 tsp is 1/4 cup. Hope this clears up your confusion. - 8/7/09

    This looks very good, make sure to be careful with the conversions. 12 tsp is 1/4 cup not an 1/8, looks great though!

    Your comment confused me. DId I make an error or did you? I didn't see anything about teaspoons in the recipe.
