To be able to be my fittest and healthiest and to have my girls be theirs, I make our granola- What I made for the next two weeks or so-Coconut Ginger Granola.  This is great for regular breakfast of course, but is particularly nice to have on hand for comp days- before, after, and even during the events.

Coconut Ginger Granola Recipe

Ingredients
• 8 cups rolled oats
• 1 1/2 cups ground flax seeds
• 1 cup grated unsweetened coconut
• 1 cup sunflower seeds
• 1 cup coarsely chopped almonds
• 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
• 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
• 2 cups sweetened dried cranberries
• 1/2 cup molasses
• 1 cup coconut milk
• 3/4 cup honey ginger spread
• 1 cup vegetable oil
• 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
• 1 teaspoon ground cloves
• 1 tablespoon ground ginger

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line two large baking sheets with parchment or aluminum foil.
  2. Combine the oats, flax seeds, coconut, sunflower seeds, almonds, pecans, walnuts, and cranberries in a large bowl. Stir together molasses, coconut milk, honey ginger spread, oil, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and vanilla in a saucepan.
