Crunchy Granola

Yield 10 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)
For those who have a higher carb allowance, here's a whole-grain granola to eat for breakfast or snacks. This recipe is comparable to some of the commercial granolas on the market, but still lower in carbs than a few of the brands. Sometimes it's easier just to make your own rather than search for the brands with the least amount of sugar and the most fiber.

  • 2 cups regular oats
  • 1 cup wheat germ
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
