Raw Granola

Thank you Ashlee for sharing this with me. This is a great way to satisfy your craving for an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie in a healthier way. It has the wonderful texture of cookie dough. It can be eaten with milk or plain. I would put this in the treat category, but it is a healthier treat. :) It is a great way to get your family to eat oatmeal. It got gobbled up by my family.

1/2 C honey
1/2 C coconut oil melted
1/2 tsp salt * optional
1 C unsweetened coconut flakes
1 C almonds chopped
4 C old fashioned oatmeal
1/2 tsp almond extract *optional
1 C dark chocolate chips (* or raisins)

1. Pour all the ingredients into a mixer except the chips. Mix until combined.
2. Pour in the chips and stir until just combined. Eat immediately or store in an airtight container to eat later. 

*If you want a version with fewer calories you can cut the honey and oil down to 1/3 C for each. It tried it. It tastes good just a drier version, and it doesn't clump as much.  If you are are adding milk to it for cereal, the the drier version will work great..
