Hodgepodge Granola

Hodgepodge...such a fun word! It means a heterogeneous mixture; a jumble and that is EXACTLY what is going on in this granola. It is a crazy mixture of a wide variety of shapes, sizes, tastes and textures that will leave your taste buds guessing what is coming next. Even more than that though, is the fact that it is CRAZY healthy! It combines some of the world's most nutritious grains, topped with spices that have almost magical healing powers!

I love granola with just about anything and everything... yogurt, fruit, ice cream, pudding, smoothies, steak-okay, maybe not that far-just making sure you're paying attention!


-1 cup oats
-2 TBSP. chia seeds
-2 TBSP wheat germ
-2 TBSP. flax seed
-1 egg white (not pictured-sorry!)
-1/4 cup Splenda (or sugar, or any sugar substitute)
-1 TBSP vanilla (also not pictured, man where was my brain today?!)
-1 TBSP. cinnamon
-2 tsp. ginger

1. Preheat oven to 300*; Beat egg white until it is fluffy
2. Add sugar & vanilla and mix well
3. Add all other ingredients and stir until each is coated and starting to form clumps
4 Spread onto a parchment lined cookie sheet
5. Bake 20-25 minutes or until granola is beginning to slightly brown and get slightly crispy
          ~Don't worry if your granola isn't very crisp, in my experience it always gets crispy after it is removed from oven and has time to cool

Delicious! Don't you wish you had some of this to top some frozen yogurt with right now?! I DO!
