Remember that song?

Funny things happen when you’re a mom and a song gets stuck in your head. 

How does singing & songs relate to granola?

Quite simply.  They don’t.

Child song + granola recipe I wanted to share = Wednesday blog post

Erin & Angel’s Granola

  • 3 oz. brown sugar
  • 5 oz. canola oil
  • 12 oz. honey
  • 1 pound of Gluten Free Oats
  • 1 1/2 oz. of ground flax seed
  • 8 oz.  nuts(I use what I have on hand–this batch included sliced almonds and chopped pecans—sunflower seeds and sesame seeds are my other favorites)
  • 2 oz.  coconut

Add brown sugar, oil and honey into small pot.  Bring ingredients to a boil.

In seperate bowl, mix together oats, flaxs, nuts, coconut, dried fruit…whatever else you choose to add.

Once honey mixture has boiled, add to dry ingredients. Mix until moistened.

Spread on greased baking sheet(or use a Silpat–the best invention EVER) and bake @ 325 for ~30min.  Check half-way through baking time to ensure it isn’t browning too fast.  Once it is golden brown, remove from the oven. The granola will still be soft but IT WILL HARDEN once cooled.

Dangerous stuff. 🙂
