Starting the day off with a good breakfast is important. I find that I feel better throughout the rest of the day if I eat first thing in the morning. That's why I eat granola; it's loaded with great minerals and keeps me going.
 Molasses is high in magnesium, potassium, etc.; honey is good for aiding your digestion; the various nuts in the granola are chalk-full of good vitamins. You get the idea. Eat granola. The amounts and ingredients can easily be switched around. The basic formula for this is 7 c. dry ingredients, 1 c. wet.


4 c. Certified Gluten-free Oats
1 1/2 c. Shredded Coconut
1 c. Sunflower seeds
1/2 c. Walnuts (or any nut of your preference)
2 Tbsp. Chia seed
2 Tbsp. Flax seeds

1/3 c. Honey
1/3 c. Molasses
1/3 c. Olive Oil

Combine all ingredients in roaster pan, or one of suitable size. A 1/2 batch in a 9x13 in pan would probably work well. Bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes - 1 hour, stirring every 10 - 15 minutes.
 The time may vary depending on your oven. Our gas oven burns hotter than an electric one, so it takes less time (30 minutes, stirring every 10) In town, with the electric oven, cooking for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes, worked just fine.

Serve plain or with applesauce. If you can handle dairy, it's also very good with yogurt.
