We are still at this kiln galzing thing...

 An interruption with the storm and all so here is a recipe for you.

If you have never made Granola you should try.
It is so much better than the store bought stuff.
You can make this as sweet or not as you want.
Here is the whole recipe - but you can throw in anything you want just remember 6 cups dry to 1 cup wet.
My old tried and true Recipe:
Mix all the dry in a big pottery bowl.
Chop up in a variety of forms:
1 cup walnuts
1 cup cashews
1/3 cup almonds
(use any combination of nuts that you like)
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/3 cup coconut
1/3 cup wheat germ
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3-4 cups oats

mix all the wet in a big measuring cup
1/4 cup oil
3/4 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
Add wet to dry with a big spoon and mix well.
Dump onto a cookie sheet- or two if you need the room and bake at 250- for 30 minutes.
Stir after 15- keep a close eye after 25.
add dried fruit of your choice in the last 2 minutes- just to warm it and blend in.
BECAUSE you do not want to burn the dried fruit- trust me.

We make homemade granola and you're right, it's SO much better than what you get in the store. It doesn't keep forever like the packaged stuff but it tastes so good you'll eat it before it goes bad anyway.

I made granola for the first time this year. Put maple syrup in it. SO good. I'll never buy store bought again. Hope you're safe and haven't blown away!!!

I've never made granola before, it always seemed very intimidating. I am going to try your recipe though - it looks easy enough even I can make it!

this is so easy and yes, so good- you will never buy the stuff from the store again. In fact I need to make a batch for us soon.

Laurie said...

That sounds good, I am going to try it using coconut oil as that is good for you.
