Weekly Baking: Granola, take 1
A few weeks ago we went away for the weekend, and one day we stopped by a bakery for a quick tea and pastry. There was a big jar of granola on the counter and it just called to me. Sadly we didn’t have time to stay and granola and yogurt didn’t strike me as the best car food (possible yes, but…). Once I was home I decided I had to recreate the fetching granola display. Since a stop to Ikea was on the agenda, I grabbed another one of their Burken jars and looked around for my aunt’s granola recipes (which I was loving a few weeks ago at her house). I couldn’t find it and proceeded to open up every granola recipe I’ve ever bookmarked plus a few cookbooks and kind-of-sort followed one of them (well the wet-ingredient list anyway), throwing in a few ingredients I remember from my aunt’s go-to recipe. Mild success. It is tasty enough, but not the granola nirvana I was hoping for. However it had drastically increased the number of days I actually eat breakfast, so that is a win.
Granola take 1 recipe: Everybody Likes Sandwiches Better than from a Bakery Granola
Stuff: oatmeal, almonds, pumpkin seeds, pistachios, sesame seeds, unsweetened dried coconut, dried cranberries, some vanilla and Penzey’s baking spice for extra flavor (note – do not use baking spice in granola again)
