Homemade Flax Granola

Posted on September 18, 2007. Filed under: Recipes |

Granola BarsWhen family or friends are sitting gathered at your home over the holidays, instead of reaching for that second piece of fudge, have a handful of this Flax Granola.  Taken from Flax Your Way to Better Health, this snack offers a healthy alternative to the many tempting holiday treats. 

“It tastes great!”

6 cups dry oatmeal
1 cup soy nuts
1 cup ground flax seed
1 cup raisins
½ cup canola oil
½ cup sunflower seeds
½ cup sesame seeds
½ cup wheat germ
1 ½ cup honey

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.  In a separate bowl, combine all the wet ingredients.  Add the wet to the dry mixture.  Spray a cookie sheet with a non-stick spray.  Pour mixture out on the cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degree F. for 12-15 minutes.  Remove from oven, stir, then bake 5 minutes more.  Repeat once more.  After final baking, remove from oven and continue to stir every 10 minutes, until the mixture begins to cool down, then transfer mixture to a large bowl and stir every 10 minutes to break up clumps as they form.  Store in a cool, dry place or refrigerate.  Makes about 30 servings.  Each serving contains ½ tablespoon flaxseed.
