Re: Yogurt and granola recipes

We're nut free so just add whatever nut you want.

Here's a granola we like

A slightly less sugar version (and smaller recipe)
3 cups oatmeal
1 teas cinnamon
1/3 cup raisins or other dried fruit
1/2 teas salt
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp veggie oil

Preheat oven to 300. Mix dry ingred and raisins. In sauce pan heat applesauce, honey, brown sugar and oil. Mix all together and spread onto baking sheet. Bake stirring every 10 mins until a deep brown about 45 mins. This is completely optionally, but turn the oven off without opening the door and let the granola sit for another 15 mins or so (some people leave over night) this will help it be crunchy. We use this recipe to make these sometimes. You omit the brown sugar and raisins in the granola if your going to use it for the bars.

I know you didn't ask for granola bar recipes but this one is a favorite of my my dd . These are harder (the ones above are less chewy). Its a basic recipe, take the raisins out and you can make any kind you want. We usually do dried cherries or cranberries and chocolate chips. We usually end up taking about a week and half to eat the pan. They stay on the counter the whole time and are still good.

We don't make yogurt, we don't eat enough of it to make it worth it for us.
