My 100th Post & Homemade Granola

Paella with Frozen Seafood was my first recipe on this blog. It’s one of my “new life style” twisted recipes; since I've heard about the Clean Eating and all that healthy stuff, I've started searching and learning about processed food, calories, bad and good fat, what our body needs…etc.

I like food and I love cooking… and between us, I couldn't follow any of the diets out there. So, I chose to make my own recipes from scratch, and trust me, lowering the fat and calories does not take any of the flavors off your food. You will get the real taste of your vegetables, meat…etc and you will see some weight loss.

Family and friends love my recipes and are always asking for more. That’s how I started blogging about my food and my new life style, and I’m happy I’m doing it!! 

Okay…now my 100th post is my favorite homemade Granola. So easy to put together, and it's ready in 40 minutes. Throw it in the oven while watching your favorite TV show. And guess what? After so many tries, this granola recipe  is low in fat and sugar, and you know exactly what's in it.

In total, I used 2 ½ cups of nuts. Feel free to use the ones you like.


1 and ½ cups oatmeal
¼ cup ground flax-seeds
½ cup dried cranberries
1 cup silvered almonds
1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
3 tbsp. natural peanut butter
½ tsp. sea salt
1/3 cup raw honey
½ tsp. vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients. Mix until evenly blended.
Transfer mixture to a baking pan and press it down.
Bake for 4o minutes.
Let it cool and then store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
