SIGGI’S YOGURT TOPPED WITH NUTTY GRANOLA

 

Time for a little diversion. We need to feed our bodies as well as our minds and souls. So, I am sharing my favorite homemade granola. It is good in a bowl with some almond milk, as a topping on yogurt, or just for snacking.

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup organic, rolled oats (certified gluten-free)
1/4 cup sliced, raw almonds
1/3 cup coconut sugar
1/4 tsp Himalayan salt
1/4 tsp. Ceylon (or Mexican) cinnamon
1 egg white
3 Tbsp. water
3 Tbsp. raw, organic honey
1 tsp. grapeseed oil
2 cups raw walnuts
1 cup raw pecans
1-2 handfuls of raisins

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. In a food processor, combine the oats, almonds, coconut sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Pulse until you have a rough chop. Do not pulse until you get a flour. Pour into an additional bowl and set aside.
  3. In the empty food processor, add the walnuts and pecans. Pulse to break nuts into pieces.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg white until foamy (but not stiff). Add the waterhoney, and oil; whisk to combine.
  5. Add the walnuts and pecans pieces to the bowl of liquid and completely cover the nuts. Use your hands.
  6. Add the oat mixture to the bowl with the nuts. Using your hands, cover the nuts with the oat mixture. You will have more mixture than nuts.
  7. Spread the mixture onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Watch carefully to prevent burning. After 7 minutes, gently stir the mixture.
  9. After removing from oven, add the raisins.

Let's get to the elephant first: I have myotonic dystrophy which defines my physical limitations, but it does not define me. Without the distraction of physical activities, I have found my passions: (1) Encouraging others to live more fully with fun, faith, and hope; (2) finding freedom in oil painting; (3) writing about my experiences; and (4) encouraging others to live more passionately. It is my belief that every person lives with at least one disability - for impairments are not limited to those with chronic illnesses. Many neurotypical people are psychological architects who have constructed enclosures in which they trap themselves. Mindsets, attitudes, and perceptions are fluid realities. Many of us have forgotten that it is possible how to live beyond our disabilities. Life may have challenges but faith and hope are within reach. I have made my choice: I am LivingFreeWithdisAbilities.
