4 Cups old-fashioned oats
1 Cup All-bran cereal
1 Cup nuts and/or seeds (such as almonds, walnuts and sunflower seeds)
1/4 Cup brown sugar
1 TSP cinnamon
1/4 Cup honey
1/2 Cup vegetable oil
I love granola, and I always keep a stash in my pantry. I pour it over yogurt or eat as a cereal with milk for breakfast, or I eat it right out of the package as a snack. Not only are most packaged granolas loaded with sugars, they can also be pricey. Making your own granola is not only easy, but it also allows you to control the sugar and the ingredients. I've seen dozens of different recipes, but I chose this recipe from HonestCooking.com since it didn't have a huge list of ingredients. I just used almonds and a pinch of cinnamon, but the fruit and nut flavor combinations here are endless. This recipe makes A LOT, so I will be in sweet, crunchy heaven for the next few weeks.
1/4 Cup cocnut milk
1/4 Cup cream
1/4 Cup sugar
Pinch of salt
One of the best culinary purchases I made last summer was a popsicle mold. Popsicles are the perfect summertime snack, and by making your own you can control the sugar and the ingredients. I couldn't wait to try this unique recipe from Yum Sugar, since I have been obsessing over avocado-based desserts lately. Sounds weird, but if you like avocados, you'll love these. I used light coconut milk and 1% milk to lighten these up, but they are still pretty rich and creamy.
Cut the avocado flesh into cubes and add to a blender with the coconut milk, milk, sugar and salt. Blend until smooth, adding more liquid if needed. Pour into molds and place in the freezer.
