RECIPES TO TRY:
Grain free strawberry granola cereal
Delicious, chocolaty and it makes your "milk" turn chocolaty too!
2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
2/3 cup nuts / coconut
2 Tbps melted coconut oil or vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
1/4 tsp salt
3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2 Tbsp water

Mix rest of ingredients in a pot or microwave dish. Warm to melt and mix well.
Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix well.
Spread on parchment lined baking sheet (about 1/2 thick)
Bake 45 min at 300'.
Remove from oven and press granola down firmly. (this will give better clusters)

NOTE: I just made this again and mixed up these 2 recipes by accident!
Used 2 c oats, 1+ c nuts, 1/3 c ea hemp hearts, sesame seeds, 2 T cinn (plus 1 t nutmeg), 1/4 c coconut oil, 1/2- 2/3 c xylitol icing sugar, 2 T apple juice. The added nuts and seeds will lower the glycemic effect, and the xylitol will lower the sugars.
