Light and Crunchy Granola

Most granola recipes call for oil or syrup instead of yogurt. Yogurt gives the granola a lighter taste and fewer calories.

Light and Crunchy Granola

Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine 1/4 cup plain low-fat yogurt, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Mix well. Add 2 cups rolled oats and 1/2 cup chopped nuts or seeds. Pecans, cashews, walnuts, slivered almonds, peanuts, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, and pumpkin seeds all work well. Stir until all of the rolled oats are moistened. Spread the mixture 1/2 inch deep on a cookie sheet. Bake until some of the granola begins to brown (about 20-30 minutes). Allow to cool before eating. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

Weight Loss Tip: For variety, add some shredded coconut to the mix, or use different nuts. To make lighter granola, substitute puffed wheat for some of the rolled oats. Enjoy the granola in low-fat milk or yogurt, topped with raisins or fresh fruit.
