Edit: Hey guys, this post was supposed to go up yesterday…and then I fell asleep. So just consider Tuesday the day of two posts!
I am serious, readers. Cameras were invented for the sole purpose of making me sad. So you get no pictures today. You do, however, get a super duper, crazy awesome recipe for sugar free granola. Call me a giver. 🙂
6 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 cup honey (or maple syrup if you’re a no honey vegan)
1/2 cup nuts of your choice (I used pumpkin seeds, but they’re seriously all good)
1/2 cup dried fruit (I used raisins, but again, they all taste super)
2-3 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 F
In a small saucepan combine the honey and molasses and bring to a simmer. Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine the oats, nuts, and spices. Add the heated molasses and honey mixture and stir to coat. Spread evenly over a baking sheet (you may need to do this in batches) and bake for 20 to 30 minutes, stirring every five minutes or so to keep the granola from burning. It should be golden, and yummy looking. Let cool before stirring in the fruit (otherwise it will burn and be disgusting!).
Olive and I like to eat this with a little almond milk or yogurt. Mike and my dad love to just nibble on it as a snack. Either way, it’s delicious and filling. Enjoy!
