If the shoe fits.......

So my brother Andy loves to call me a granola. Actually, I'm pretty sure he's not the only who thinks that I dont shave my legs and that I would rather live in the woods than in a fancy mansion. Despite the fact that both of those comments are true, I do enjoy granola food. I had never made it before Mom gave us this cool cookbook for Christmas. Here is the recipe I use (its like mark bitmans, but with dietitian additions)

6 cups real life rolled oats
2 cups almonds/peanuts
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup craisins
1 cup bran
1/4 cup flax meal

Heat oven to 350. In a bowl, combine the oats, nuts seeds cinnamon and honey. Spread evenly on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 30-40 until its brown all over.

remove from heat and add craisins. cool completely and store

YUMMY. Hooray for GRANOLAS!!!!!
