Homemade Granola


I need better pictures for this post....It's on the blog to-do list!
Julie's Granola Recipe #1
1 serving (1 cup or 14g) puffed rice-50cal
1 serving (1.25 cups or 16g) puffed wheat-50cal
1 serving wheat germ-60 cal (NOT RECOMMENDED)
1/2 serving reduced sugar maple syrup-50cal
1/2 cup skim milk (but I'm LOVING my almond milk lately!)-20-50cal)
Liberal dose of cinnamon and ginger
1 pack sweetener (optional)
1/4 cup of whatever dried fruit/nut mix you like.

For Recipe #2 I used all the same ingredients but omitted the wheat germ.


Mix all dry ingredients together

Mix wet ingredients in a little bowl (mix thoroughly!)

Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, stirring halfway through

It's done when you think it's crunchy enough (but beware, it gets crunchier when it cools!)

Comes out to about 300 cal total (without wheat germ)

I separate it into 3 4oz (1/2 cup) servings for 100 cals each.

Makes for a nice snack, but beware, this isn't as "healthy" as other granolas that pack in protein and all sorts of good things that come in nuts.
