Hi everyone!

I am looking for recipes for homemade granola. My husband picked up a package at a local farmer's market but we ran out! Between he and I and the $4 package, it can easily get to be an expensive treat.

I was wondering if anyone here would have any recipes that are healthy. I would love to be able to make it at home instead of paying so much for a small bag.

Thanks in advance!

Is there such a thing? Sure you can add in raw almonds, dried fruits, leave out the extra sugar and chocolate chips, etc., but all granolas are fattening.

I usethis granola bar (http://allrecipes.com/recipe/cranberry-nut-granola-bars/detail.aspx) recipe as a guide. I usually stick with 3 cups of regular old oatmeal and then a total of 3 cups of what ever mix of nuts/dried fruits/chocolate chips I want. I also add in 2 scoops of whey protein powder and a little bit of milk. Is this the kind of recipe you're looking for?

Thanks everyone! i like to have a bit for breakfast and as a recovery for after my workouts. I'm looking for one with low sugar and no/or no oil.
