                           I have made and bought GRANOLA before, but this one recipe
                  is very different. It is better tasting, !
                           You can eat it as a snack for a boost of energy, eat it for breakfast
                 over yogurt, or layer it in a glass with your favorite fruits for an easy dessert
                 Children love it as much as adults, it is a great way to start any day!.

                                                 CAPTAIN  CRUNCH   GRANOLA

                  Preheat oven to 300*
                  In a large bowl combine;  1 large beaten egg white [adds the crunch]
                  3 cups old-fashioned oats [not quick oats]
                  1 + 1/2  cups chopped nuts [ such as almonds, pistachios, or walnuts]
                  1 + 1/2  cups coconut shavings [ available at natural food stores
                                                                   and some supermarkets]
                  1/2  cup maple syrup [ or honey or agave syrup ]
                  1/4  cup olive oil
                  1/4 cup sesame seeds
                  2 Tablespoons light brown sugar [ packed ]
                  1 + 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
                  1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
                   Toss together to combine. Spread out on a rimmed cookie sheet.
                   Bake 40 - 45 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes till golden brown.
                   Let cool on baking sheet [ it will crisp as it cools ]

                   Mix into granola, as it cools, 1 cup of dried cranberries.
                   Make this your own by adding 1 cup of chocolate chips, or raisins
                   at this time also, even more, or a variation of , nuts, and seeds .

                  This GRANOLA will keep for 2 weeks in an air-tight container
                  at room temperature.
                  GRANOLA  can be put in baggies for an easy-grab snack.

      That is all for today,  friend. This is Jenny
