Simple Granola recipe

So this month has been a iittle rough. All four of us have been off sugar, and if you know my family, you know how we LOVE everything sugar (like this, this, this– I could go on forever). We are just detoxing from sugar cane, though. Honey and Pure maple syrup are acceptable. Even so, it has been challenging with our fast paced schedules, to find snacks to take on the go. Needless to say (but I will say it anyway), I had to come up with some kind of grabable food that we all like.  I made this Simple Granola recipe a few times now, and it seems to be a good substitute. It satisfies our need for sweet without being “sweet”. And now I have a printable recipe to share with you!

We happen to have a very picky tween in the house, so our granola is pretty simple. Actually, we have  even made it without the sunflower seeds, just with oats, which is even simpler. You can add nuts and dried fruit to yours, if that is your cup of tea, though.

  1. I tried honey instead of maple syrup because it was what I had, and mixed in flax seeds. It was delicious before it even got to the oven! It’s actually still cooking…

  2. Michelle, it got a little overdone at two sets of 15 minutes, but it still very yummy! Eating it plain right now while the rest cools! Thank you for sharing this recipe.
