Cinnamon & Flax Granola

Cinnamon & Flax GranolaWhen our family decided to stop buying processed food, cereal was probably the first thing to go–hubby was pissed.

My reason for this madness was the obvious: breakfast cereals are full of sugar, sodium, chemical preservatives, and artificial flavors and are so highly processed that they contain no nutritional value until synthetic vitamins are added back in. There are many misconceptions when it comes to breakfast cereals, and I won’t go into detail about them because I think that this article, Why Breakfast Cereal Should Not be in Your Bowl, by Holistic Squid (a blog which I love), explains some popular myths about it. In sum, cereal is not part of a balanced breakfast.

My husband agreed to surrender his Cheerios if I was able to come up with a suitable replacement, and below is the recipe that he’s agreed is a much tastier and healthier alternative.

  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl. It's best to use your hands for this so you can really work the coconut oil in.
  3. Spread evenly onto a cookie sheet, and bake for 10 minutes--trust me, not a minute more!
  4. Once cooked, allow the granola to cool. If using, stir in a couple tablespoons of the optional (yet recommended) ingredients before transfering to an air-tight container.
  5. Lasts up the 2 weeks.
Recipe Notes

If you'd like to keep this recipe raw, you can dehydrate instead of bake it.
