Helpful hints

  • Instant oats contain added salt. Old fashioned rolled oats are preferable as they are lower in sodium.
  • Packaged apple chips vary in size. Select the brand closest to 3.4 ounces.
  • Store granola in an airtight container. Enjoy with Maple Cinnamon Roasted Pears, unenriched almond or rice milk, cottage cheese or yogurt.
  • For a gluten-free version be sure to use oats and puffed rice cereal that indicates gluten-free on the label.
