Natasha Corrett’s Healthy Granola

We love this video from Britain’s Natasha Corrett on how to make a sustainable, homemade granola.  Her idea is to make the granola on Sunday night and put it into a sealable container.  She says it will keep for a few weeks that way.  This is such a great idea for busy moms who need to plan meals ahead if they want to have healthy eats for their families.  Delicious!

Aimee Song’s Raw Bar Recipe

This incorporates homemade granola into making your own granola bar.  It’s a fun video mashup from two of her tapings.  We think you’ll love the freshness of her approach and how she uses dates instead of sugar.  If you’re a fan of Aimee on Instagram, you see her bringing these homemade bars with her everywhere (even to Dior fashion shows!).

Catherine McCord’s Dried Cherry Granola Bars

How about $4.00-$6.00 for 30 granola bars?!!  This is how much you can save if you make your own granola bars with Catherine’s recipe.  And you can even do this recipe with your children.  You’ll need —

  • Old-Fashion Oats
  • Whole Wheat Flour
  • Unsweetened coconut
  • Little bit of brown sugar
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (we suggest this, because there’s less GMO possibility than canola oil)
  • Honey
  • Vanilla extract
  • Dried Cherries (or dried cranberries)
