A delicious quick and easy granola with almonds and dried cranberries that is made on the stovetop. Feel free to add your favorite dried fruits and nuts too.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oats then cook and stir until starting to brown and crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and spread out on a cookie sheet to cool.
Melt the butter in the same pan over medium heat. Stir in the honey and brown sugar; cook, stirring constantly, until bubbly. Return the oats to the pan. Cook and stir for another 5 minutes or so. Pour out onto the cookie sheet and spread to cool.
Once cool, transfer to an airtight container and stir in the almonds and dried cranberries. Any additional nuts and fruit can be stirred in at this time also.

Eat healthy breakfast to continue the day had become a fabulous habit. It’s a great way to start my 24 hours off healthfully. The sweet hit from the fruit wakes me up and gives me power to make on the morning. Sugar is more vilified as the root of all disease, but fruit is also loaded with fibre, which is great for your stomach system and helps keep you feeling full all day , and less likely grab a side food out of the vending machine before lunchtime.
Making fruit a at 7.00 clock habit is easy . Simply put the fruit in your fridge next to the milk or on the bench next to your grain pan , or move your coffee maker or tea kettle — somewhere where you’ll find it. Before you eat the rest of your breakfast , eat your fruit. If you’re not normally a breakfast person.
