I guess I have an obsession with granola that tastes like cookies. A few weeks ago I made this Gingersnap Granola which was so great I had to try my hand at my second favorite type of cookie – oatmeal raisin.
Oatmeal Cookie Granola (with Avocado)
2 cups old fashion oats
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 small or 1 large avocado, sliced
2 tbsp raisins
4 pitted dates
3 tbsp apple juice
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp canola oil
1. Preheat oven to 300. Spray a cookie sheet with oil. In a large bowl, combine oats, salt, and cinnamon.
2. In the bowl of a food processor, place avocados slices, raisins, dates, honey, oil, and apple juice. Process until well combined (it is okay if the dates and raisins are still in chunks).
3. Stir together wet and dry ingredients. Spread on prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until crunchy.
This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. Because Joseph her husband was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly. But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: “The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”–which means, “God with us.” When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.
