Polly Motzko’s Multigrain Banana Cinnamon Granola – Made in your Microwave



This healthy super good for you granola is made in your microwave in only about a half hour, and you can vary it lots of ways.
There’s only one fourth cup of canola oil in the whole batch and this makes over 4 cups of granola, which isn’t bad.

It’s also high in fiber and the quinoa is the only grain that has all of your precious amino acids present. It’s just all-around yummy and good for you.

Feel free to vary the Ancient Grains with almonds or walnuts or pecans for a crunchy effect.

Also feel free to add other dried fruits like chopped dried prunes, dried dates, dried pineapple or peaches.

If you make this leave a comment in the comment box and let me know that you made it and you love it.

You can add it to Greek yogurt for a super healthy, high protein Breakfast Parfait topped off with some fresh fruit in season.

Oats, barley, wheat, sprouted buckwheat, sprouted Millet, chia seed, golden flax seed, red quinoa shelled hemp seed, and amaranth. The wet ingredients are a little bit of 1 banana, canola oil, brown sugar, cinnamon, and pure vanilla extract.

After cooking it for about 10 minutes, stirring every 3 minutes, you had one half cup of dried cranberries or you can add raisins, and stir with a spatula and then once the granola is nice and dry that you let it sit and cool for about an hour and then store it in airtight containers.
