All About Fitness
People keep asking me what I’m doing to lose weight. No I’m not doing a 30 day diet or a shake challenge. I’m eating healthy and exercising. It’s basic people.
Holiday flavor Clif Bars!!!!
OMG!!! I want!
Did it! Here’s the homemade granola recipe and nutrition information! (Adopted from http://beautyandbedlam.com/healthy-homemade-granola-recipe/ but I made slight changes and calculated all the nutrition info myself).
Yield - 9.25 cups (Seriously, so much. That picture shows HALF of what I have).
Recommended (by me) serving size) - 1/4 cup
6 cups rolled oats
1 cup raw sliced almonds
1 cup oat bran
1/2 cup flax seeds
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup grapeseed oil (or canola/coconut)
2/3 cup honey
Preheat oven to 325.
Mix all dry ingredients together. As it says on the website, you can mix and match the dry stuff and replace nuts and seeds and stuff for whatever you like - I replaced wheat germ with oat bran (only because I couldn’t find wheat germ), omitted the walnuts (admittedly because they’re expensive) and dried fruit entirely and used flax and sunflower seeds as my “extra” cup of ingredients. I also cut the sugar in half, you can add more or omit it completely. It’s just sweet enough, but if you’re looking for a dessert-y thing, I’d add the full 1/2 cup, or maybe just some dried fruit (raisins, figs, whatever).
Simmer honey and oil in a small saucepan until it’s liquified. Pour it over the dry ingredients and incorporate thoroughly (just keep mixing, there’s a LOT of dry ingredients but it should coat it evenly after awhile).
Spread it onto a baking sheet (about 2” thick) and bake at 325 for 10-15 minutes (I think it really depends on your over), take it out and mix it and bake again for about 5 minutes.
Let cool and enjoy!
