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!
Gather the ingredients.
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.
Mix the dry ingredients together.
Then add in the wet.
Spread out in a tray (or two if your tray is small).
Bake at 325 for 30 minutes, stirring it halfway through.
Put on your favorite yogurt (we eat goat) or eat by the handful (oh yes I have).
