With the boys heading off for a few days, I'll have no one bellowing at me about "what else are we eating for breakfast? What's the second course?!?" Yes, I actually do hear that on a regular basis. So I whipped up a batch of granola that I'll toss over yogurt and call it good.
4 C rolled organic oats
1/2 C sugar in the raw
1/2 C organic unsweetened flaked coconut
1/2 C sliced almonds
1/4 C organic flax seed meal
1/2 t smoked sea salt
1/3 C canola oil
3 T ginger syrup
dash of ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground cardamom
4 t lychee liqueur
In a large bowl mix oats, sugar, coconut, almonds, flax seed meal, and salt. In a saucepan heat canola oil and honey until warm. Remove from heat and whisk in lychee liqueur. Pour this mixture over the oat mixture and mix thoroughly till everything is completely coated
Spread this evenly on a parchment covered cookie sheet. Bake at 300º for about 20 minutes until slightly golden brown. Don’t stir during baking. Cool completely and break into pieces. Store in an air tight container.
