Orange Almond Granola

What you need: 

2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup soy flour
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1 teaspoon cinnamon
a pinch or two of salt
2 tablespoons orange juice concentrate
1/4 cup agave nectar
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

What you do: 

I've been known to add Goji berries and raw chocolate, but mostly I keep the recipe as is.
Combine dry ingredients. In a separate bowl mix orange juice concentrate, agave nectar and almond extract. Stir into oat mixture.
At first it may seem like there's not enough of the wet mixture to hold the granola together, but there is. Just keep stirring. Once mixed, put the granola in an airtight container and store in the fridge.
I don't bake my granola. I don't have the patience, and I like this one as is. Since its not baked, it stays soft and you can still use the oats to make oatmeal. I eat it with Yogurt (soy) and Acai bowls. Or just with a spoon.
This is a good breakfast granola as it has a little bit of everything (fiber, protein, carbs). Enjoy, lovelies :-).

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I added some pecans and some orange zest to make it nuttier and orangier.  Mmm mmm good.

Mm, very good, and simple - will be making this frequently. I did make some changes: my concentrate got made into OJ before I made this, so I used the juice and zest of 1/2 of a small orange, which to me was a fine sub. I also used 1/4 cup of sliced almonds instead of the extract, and I baked them for an hour at 250 F (flipping the granola after 30 minutes). It was a good snack at work tonight and I look forward to eating this at breakfast!  ;D

this is great, I replaced the agave with maple syrup since I had it at home and used an orange cranberry juice and threw some dried cranberries in.

Yummy yummy yummy!  I added some shredded unsweetened coconut and used a little almond butter in place of some of the orange juice concentrate.  This has to be my favorite granola recipe ever!  =D

Fyi, this is also REALLY good with frozen concentrated cherry juice in place of the concentrated OJ. The cherry gets along famously with the almond.
