Here is a quick recipe for some delicious and healthy, Brain Power Granola. This is a great snack for anyone needing a little brain boost. You can also add milk to the granola for a great breakfast or add it to yogurt! This is a really yummy homemade recipe that you will love!
Brain Power Granola
2 cups regular oats (gluten free)
1/3 cup ground flaxseed
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup chopped slivered almonds (I sometimes sub in some pistachios for walnuts or almonds)
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/3 cup orange juice
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup dried cranberries
Preheat oven to 300°.
Combine first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl.
Mix orange juice, honey, and brown sugar in a small saucepan. Cooking over medium heat just until the sugar dissolves, making sure you are stirring frequently. Remove mixture from heat; stir in oil and vanilla.
Pour the honey mixture over the oat mixture we first created, stirring to coat. Spread this mixture in a thin layer onto a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 300° for 10 minutes; stir well. Bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until the granola is a golden brown. Spoon granola into a bowl, then stir in dried cranberries. Cool completely.
If the Brain Power Granola outlasts a hungry household and you have extra, you will want to store completely cooled granola in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.
