Grain Power

Alicia Silverstone‘s book, The Kind Diet has a ton of great recipes. Last night I wanted to make her granola recipe, but I only had half of the ingredients. This is my take on her “Mom’s Granola” recipe…


  • 3 c oats
  • 1/3 c wheat germ
  • 1/4 c shredded coconut
  • 1/2 c chopped pecans and walnuts
  • 1/2 c raisins
  • 1/4 c safflower oil
  • 1/3 c maple syrup
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla
  • couple dashes of cinnamon

Bake the oats at 350 for 10 minutes. Then add with dry ingredients. Mix in wet until everything is combined. Return to oven, bake for 5 minutes, stir and bake for 5 more.
