Exotic Granola

  • 2 tsp canola oil
  • 1 1/4 cups regular rolled oats
  • 1/8 cup flax meal
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 2 Tbsp agave syrup
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • ½ cup toasted nuts (of your choice)
  • ½ cup exotic dried fruit (of your choice)

|Preparation | Preheat oven to 325°F. Lightly grease baking sheet with canola oil (you may also use cooking-oil spray or line baking sheet with nonstick foil). In medium bowl, combine oats, flax meal, cinnamon and salt. Mix well. In small bowl, combine apple juice, agave syrup and honey. Mix well.

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, stirring until mixture is fully combined and moist. Spread mixture on greased baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.

Remove from oven and stir, breaking large chunks into smaller pieces. Bake for an additional 8 minutes, or until crisp. Remove from oven and allow to cool. While still warm, stir to break up any remaining chunks. When completely cool, store granola in an airtight container.
