Recently we asked you on Facebook for your favorite recipes or snack ideas. Bootcamper Jodi shared this recipe for marmalade and granola. Yum, thank you Jodi!

Marmalade and Granola
The key to the recipe is the marmalade. It can also be used as a substitution for jam with peanut butter, on toast or a muffin, or with a curry dinner as a condiment.

Mix together:
1/2 cup nonfat cottage cheese
1/2 cup nonfat yogurt
1 teaspoon marmalade (see recipe below)
2 Tablespoons granola, Kashi or Grape-Nuts

Marmalade recipe:
2 whole oranges (option: add strawberries with the oranges)
1/2 cup dates
1 cup apple juice concentrate
optional: chopped walnuts
  1. Wash oranges and cut in quarters (do not peel).
  2. Place in food processor with dates and process to chop fine.
  3. Transfer to a sauce pan.
  4. Add apple juice to fruit mixture and bring to simmer.
  5. Cook until orange rind is very tender (stirring frequently), and marmalade is thickened.
