1 cup chopped dates or 1/2 cup honey
1 cup water
8 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup raisins
1 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup slivered almonds
2 cups shredded coconut
1/4 cup EVOO
1/4 cup frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the dates and water. Cook stirring occasionally until the mixture forms a thick paste. Remove from heat and set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the oats, walnuts, raisins, wheat germ, sunflower seeds, and coconut. Spread out in a thin layer onto a baking sheet. If your baking sheet is small, this can be done in batches.
Bake for 7 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly toasted. Transfer the mixture back into the bowl, and mix in the date paste, apple juice concentrate, and oil. Return to the baking sheet and bake for an additional 7 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until lightly browned. Granola will become more crispy as it cools. Store in an airtight container.
I came across another awesome looking Healthy Granola recipe, this one is more my style though, it just gives the items to use and doesn’t say how much. “Custom” granola… sweet! haha The nice thing about healthy granola is that it’s pretty forgiving. Just stick any old thing in there and it should come out pretty good.
Even the wet ingredients are the same way… check it out:
Mix all of that around then add the wet ingredients:
lite maple syrup

With the heat of summer upon us, we all try to keep cooking to a minimum. I thought this was a good recipe for healthy granola and since it can be made ahead of time and last all week, the cooking only needs to be done once thus keeping the house cooler in the mornings, or whenever a quick, healthy granola snack is needed.
I like how the recipe uses applesauce and agave nectar for sweetness and body; just sounds so un-ordinary… and I love that. So check it out, and let me know how you like it!
