Homemade Granola Girl, Uh Huh!

I’m getting sick of talking about my health issues. Also, I don’t want my blog to be hijacked by The Rash, much as it would love to eat my blog, too. So, just know that I am improving and I will be updating My Health Project page quarterly (that means March 21st, Nourooz/Ostara).

I woke up today craving granola. It’s something that’s a little hard to find gluten-free, sugar-free, etc. I have long known that I could just make my own, but it wasn’t until today that I finally managed to try it out. Woohoo!

So, basically, I took some gluten-free oats and toasted them under the new kickass broiler. Then, I toasted some pumpkin seeds, which I love. I tossed the oats and seeds together and coated them very lightly with agave syrup. You have to watch that stuff because it is really sweet.

Then I added some sliced banana and cinnamon, and voila! Granola.

The flavor when you make it yourself is obviously way different from grocery-store granola. At home, it’s more nutty and you really taste the oats. Next time I’ll try oats, walnuts, and blueberries, and maybe toss in some sheep yogurt (one of my new favorite foods).

I feel good knowing my intestines are getting an oatmeal cleanse.
