Better than granny's granola

Healthy Start Breakfast

It's easy to claim that you don't have time to eat breakfast and that finding something quick, easy, and healthy is next to impossible. Don't be that person. Instead, be the person who makes a batch of granola on the weekend and has a healthy option on the go.
I modeled this recipe after Dorset Cereals Honey Granola. I've made it twice and this is a rough idea of what to do!

Your Shopping List:

2 cups oats
1/4 cup rye flakes
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup flaked almonds
1/3 cup crushed pecans
Pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp oil

What to do with it:

  1. Preheat oven to 300.
  2. Mix all dry ingredients in large bowl.
  3. Add vanilla, honey, and oil.
  4. Mix well and then spread granola on baking sheets. A thin layer is preferable.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes and then stir granola.  Bake for an additional 5 minutes,  or until it looks golden.  Be careful not to overcook it!
  6. Let cool and store in airtight container (I like Mason jars).  Serve the granola with plain Greek yogurt and fruit.
