I love it when people call me granola… although I don’t think I deserve it.
If you are not familiar, it’s a term people use to describe someone who is a bit on the rugged side, earthy, probably makes chai from scratch and can, without much effort, throw on anything and pull it off. Again… not me, but I love my granola friends!
I also love… making GRANOLA! My roommate brought a recipe she actually got from her roomie last year and we made it yesterday and WOW. So good! I thought I would indulge you with the recipe and encourage you to try your own variations and report back!
Preheat oven to 250 then combine wet/dry ingredients in separate bowls.
2 cups wheat flour
6 cups oats (steel cut if you can find em)
1 cups coconut
1 cup wheat germ
1 cup chopped nuts
3 T powdered milk
1t cinnamon (i would add a touch more)
1 t salt
(also add almonds, craisins, sunflower seeds, etc. to your liking)
1/2 cup water
1 cup oil
1 cup honey
2 t vanilla
Combine wet and dry together and mix thoroughly. Spread onto 2 cookie sheets and bake for 30 minutes. Flip and bake 30 more minutes. It’s best if it is spread out thin – crispier that way.
eat on its own, with yogurt or milk… all the time!!
