Snack Time

Mmmm I am always looking for a good snack!! And granola has always been a favorite, I especially LOVE to add it to my yogurt!
So since I am going to FOCUS on  losing this extra weight...I knew I had to find a good and healthy recipe. I found one one and it's even low in points!!

It turned out better than expected and the whole family LOVED it!! Guess I will be making this again!
Weight Watchers Granola (1 cup=4pts)

4 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup sliced almonds (I actually chopped mine)
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup cooking oil
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries
In a bowl mix oats, almonds, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon. In sauce pan warm oil and honey. Then whisk or stir in vanilla. Carefully pour liquid over the oat mixture. Stir gently with a wooden spoon, finish mixing by hand.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Spread granola onto cookie sheet (higher the sides the better). Bake for 40 mins. Stirring every 10 mins. Transfer to cooling rack and cool completely. Stir in cranberries or raisins. Seal in air tight container for 1 week at room temperature or in freezer for 3 months.

Hey kate, I would recalculate this recipe in the recipe builder on WW's website (or use the PP+ calculator and the nutrition facts of I did and I got 7PP+ per serving and I'm wondering if the recipe does indeed make 12 cups. I'm thinking the 1cup=4points in the old points system. Sorry :( Just thought I would let you know.

OH...that would be a HUGE downer! Okay thanks!! I found it on a website, and you are probably right about it being the old points.
