Nuts For Granola!
December 06, 2017
"I like granola with my Greek Yogurt but commercially prepared ones have lots of fat and calories. This is my attempt to be a little healthier! I have also made a hot cereal using 3/4 cups boiling water to 1/2 cup oat mixture. Add oat mixture to boiling water, bring back to boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently until liquid is absorbed."

In a saucepan, combine juice, sugar and spices. Bring to boil and keep to a simmer until slightly reduced.
Pour liquid over oat mixture and stir until everything seems evenly mixed.

Return to oven for another 5 minutes or until mixture is dry.

Tips & Variations
- I use a cast iron pan but it could easily be made on a rimmed baking sheet.
