This was my breakfast today, granola topped with strawberry yogurt and fresh strawberries :lol:

Healthy Granola

Ingredients
4 cups oats (use old fashioned or rolled. Do NOT use instant oats)
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup bran flakes
1/4 cup dried fruit (eg cranberries, cherries, blueberries...)
1 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup sunflower/pumpkin seed
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup chopped almonds
1/2 cup flaxseed
1/4 cup oil (I use canola)
1/3 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method
1. Preheat oven to 325F.
2. In a large deep bowl, mix together oats, bran flakes, wheat germ, sunflower/pumpkin seeds, walnuts, almonds and flaxseed.
3. Add the oil, honey and vanilla extract and mix well.
4. Spread the granola onto a large baking sheet in an even layer.
5. Bake 15-20 mins. or until the granola is golden brown. Halfway through the baking time (about 8mins), I stir the granola to ensure a more even baking.
6. When granola is done, remove from oven and mix in the dried fruits and raisin. Let cool completely before storing in an air tight container.

note:
1.You can eat the granola like a cereal ie with milk, yogurt or even ice-cream.
2. You can even use the granola in baking bread, muffins or cakes.

Ya Jo, you can omit the nuts. Actually all the ingredients in the granola can be omitted or added according to your taste. The only constant ingredient are the oats. I add nuts, wheatgerm, flaxseed in mine as they are heart healthy.

Jo, I could be wrong but I thought Chinese normally don't eat beef/mutton if they have chickenpox or other ailments. Those meats supposed to be what the Cantonese call "tuk". (poisonous) :roll: :roll: Not sure about enzema though.
