This is one of my favorite healthy and hearty breakfast recipes adapted from the book The Plan. It is full of protein, omega 3’s, calcium and fiber.
1 cup water
2 cups whole flaxseed
1 tablespoon agave nectar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
½ cup raisins or any dried fruit
First in a medium bowl add the water to the flaxseed and mix well. Let sit for 30 minutes then mix again.
Preheat the oven to 275 degrees.
Spread the granola in a thin even layer on a baking sheet and bake for 50 minutes.
Reduce the oven temperature to 225 degrees. Cut the sheets of granola into clusters, then turn over and bake an additional 30-40 minutes until the granola is thoroughly dry.
Use within two weeks.
There are many other options for add ins, I added ½ cup of raw sunflower seeds to my last batch. Candied ginger is also a delicious addition.
I serve with alternative milk and add fresh fruit, blueberries are my favorite.
I hope you will try this nutritious and delicious recipe.
