Our recipe for homemade granola "bars," which are actually chunks of the baked mixture, is easy to make and a wonderful snack. These ingredients are an excellent combination for an energy boost.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put oats, flakes, sugar, nuts, zest, nutmeg, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Melt butter with honey in a saucepan over low heat; stir into oat mixture.
Spread mixture in a 7-by-11-inch baking pan; bake until just golden, about 10 minutes. Let cool in pan (mixture will harden). Break cooled mixture into large chunks.
Granola can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to ten days. Soy and wheat flakes can be found at health-food stores.
