Heart Healthy Granola

Contrary to the many dessert recipes I post I do actually try to eat healthy! 

To balance the dessert I eat every night, I try to make smart choices during the day.

that includes a daily dose of Greek yogurt. To make it even better I sprinkle my own heart-healthy granola on top!

Here's the recipe:

3 cups Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
1 cup Fiber One cereal
1/2 cup Light Brown Sugar 
1/3 cup Canola oil
1/4 cup Honey
1 Tablespoon Agave 
1/8 teaspoon Cinnamon
2 Tablespoons Vanilla (or more depending on your taste)

Combine the oats, cereal, brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl
Heat the oil, honey and agave on the stove over low-medium heat. 
Pour the liquid all over the dry ingredients.
Spread it out on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 300 degrees for 20-30 minutes stirring every 10 minutes.  If you want chunkier granola skip the stirring.

it's great too sprinkled in boring cereals (ahem Total)
