pixy’s granola: take two.

whelp, it’s been a year of granola making, selling, and eating.  i posted the recipe for “pixy’s granola” a while back, but the recipe has morphed a bit since then.

here’s the updated recipe…

PIXY’S GRANOLA

  • mix the following dry ingredients together:  4 cups oats (gluten-free if needed), 1 cup rice crispies (optional, but it really makes the batch crispy and crunchy), an assorted mix of nuts of your choice (use raw), 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of garam masala, and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  • and now for the wet ingredients:  take two tablespoons ground flax seed/meal, add 3 tablespoons water and microwave for a minute.  stir and let sit until it takes on a thicker consistency.
  • add 2 tablespoons coconut oil, 2 tablespoons molasses, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, 1 tablespoon honey and 1 tablespoon agave nectar.  or you can just choose one or two of these yummy  liquid sweets and just use what you like.  but the molasses is really incredible.  and i read that it is also very good for you!!
  • mix the dry ingredients with the wet.  mix WELL.  use your hands!
  • spread out on a couple sheet pans lined with parchment paper.
  • bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes, until brown and fragrant.
  • let cool and add your favorite dried fruit!!!
