Cinnamon Raisin Granola

Standard

My two year old Myles is like a dog – he needs a walk every day or he goes crazy.  So, I have been on the hunt for a healthy snack that we could take on the go. This started out as a granola bar recipe, but it was just too sweet for us! (Add a cup of brown sugar to the below recipe and press firmly into all corners of a lightly greased baking sheet for bars) So, I started experimenting with making the bars sans sugar. They taste great but just don’t stick together the way that they should.  Rather than throw away the failed attempts, I stored them for later use as granola!

Add this to a cup of plain yoghurt, a handful of fresh berries or bananas, and some crushed nuts.  It makes for a delicious breakfast, a nice mid morning snack or a healthy dessert.    🙂
