When my ds (then 14) was in yeshiva for ninth grade, he had to be in school for three meals a day. He liked taking this granola for breakfast – it’s a tasty recipe, and good for you, too!
- 8 c. rolled oats
- 1/2 c. melted butter
- 1/2 c. melted coconut oil
- 1 1/2 c. yogurt
- 2 c. water
- 1/2 c. honey
- 1 t. sea salt
- 1 t. cinnamon
Combine the first five ingredients. Pat down, cover, and leave out for 24 – 48 hours. In a separate pot, heat the honey and add spices. Add to the soaked oat mixture. Spread mixture thinly in a baking pan and bake at 200 degrees, stirring periodically, until completely dry and crispy. You can add nuts, dried fruit, coconut, or whatever else you can think of!
Note – this isn’t a very sweet recipe, and we find it perfect for our family (usually we cut the sweetener in a recipe by 50%). But you may find it’s not sweet enough; if that’s the case, add some more honey.
I make double this recipe because it’s so good that it goes fast!
