A lot of the ready made granola that you find in the cereal isle at grocery stores are either very high in sugar or are mixed with raisins which have a very high glycemic load (GL). Last summer, I went in search of a recipe to make a low GL granola and after experimenting and combining various recipes, I’ve come up with this fairly basic recipe that can be adapted to what you have on hand or to your personal tastes.
2 c old fashioned oatmeal (I’ve also used a mixed whole grain cereal)
4 tbsp coconut oil
3/4 c mixed nut
4 tbsp pumpkin seeds
Pumpkin Pie Spice to taste
Note: These photos were taken back in the fall and I just recently discovered the photos and decided to post the recipe.
