Hysterically enough I’ve heard yogis be referred to as “granola people” on more than one occasion. And ironically, I identify with this term much more than “tree huggers” or even “yogini”. Well, because let’s face it, who doesn’t love a good granola?
Cranberry Orange Granola (People)
1/4 c agave or honey
2 tablespoon oil (coconut, corn)
1 tablespoon water
2 c rolled oats
1/2 c flax seed or wheat germ
1/2 c cashews
1/2 c dried cranberries
zest of one orange
Bring agave, oil, and water to a boil. Reduce heat and allow to simmer for 10 minutes. In the mean time, preheat oven to 250*. Add oats and flax seed to a cookie sheet or deep oven-safe dish and pour simmered mixture over the top. Allow to bake for 30 minutes, stirring well half way through. Remove oats from stove and add fruit, nuts, and zest, return to oven for 15 minutes more.
Best served after yoga and stereotypically enjoyed by most granola people.
Do you have a favorite term for yogis? Or a favorite granola mix-in?
