You are the milk to my granola

Friday, February 11, 2011

Do you want to make your husband and kids think you are a domestic goddess? I thought so!

Homemade granola has become an absolute favorite in our house. And, it is so easy. Seriously, you don't have to have any culinary prowess to make delicious healthy granola. Here is my go-to recipe slightly adpated from Katie Did:

10 c old fashined rolled oats
2c whole wheat flour
2c wheat germ
2c coconut ( I used flaked unsweetened coconut)
2c dried cranberries
1.5- 2c chopped pecans and almonds (sometimes I use whole almonds)
         mix above ingredients in large bowl
       4T vanilla
       1/2c water
       2c honey
       1c oil
         mix wet ingredients in separate bowl, add to dry ingredients
         and combine well. spread in shallow pans. stir gently every
         15 minutes or so while baking. bake at 250 until deep golden
         and almost dry, approximatley 2 hours. remove, let cool.

And because Valentine's day is just around the corner, I created these cute "you are the milk to my granola" labels to adorn your mason jars full of granola.

Now go make some granola! And PS, it's way more fun to eat your breakfast out of a footed milk glass bowl with vintage matte gold flatware. Just sayin'...
