No time for breakfast? Granola bars to the rescue. Hungry on the plane? Granola bars sure beat pretzels. Long stretch between lunch and dinner? Again, granola bars. They kept my blood sugar levels stable, and kept me from turning into a cranky, hypoglycemic mess.
4 cups old fashioned oats 1 cup dried cranberries 1 cup cashews 1 unsweetened flaked coconut 1/2 cup Persian Lime Infused Olive Oil 1/3 cup of Coconut White Balsamic gently reduced by half and cooled.
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. In a small bowl whisk together the olive oil and balsamic reduction or honey until thoroughly combined. In a large bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients except the cranberries. Pour the olive oil balsamic mixture over the oats and mix very well until all the oats and dry ingredients are completely coated with the mixture. Spread the granola out on to a baking sheet covered in parchment and bake for approximately 1 hour until golden brown and fragrant. Cool completely and then mix in the dried cranberries. Store in a sealed container for up to one month. Makes approximately 8 cups of granola!
