Food snob, that's me. I'll freely admit it. Remember this lunch from last week? I wanted a repeat but I haven't made another batch of granola since lovely Miss Ky spilled the last batch. The sandwhich I had for lunch today was wonderful but something was missing. It's hard for me to eat fruit and yogurt now without granola. Snobbish, I know.
So I quickly mixed up a batch and am waiting for my oven to heat up so I can bake it.
Here's what I did (thanks to my sister in law):
4 cups oats
2 cups coconut
2 cups nuts (I used sliced almonds)
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup flax seed (I used whole seeds but is there something about your body not processing them correctly if they're not ground? Maybe someone will enlighten us.)
Mix it all together and add 1/2 cup oil. Mix well and add 3/4 cup honey.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
Feel free to add in any extras you'd like. I added craisins once but my kids didn't like it.
Yum. By the time it's done baking, I'll have the kids down for their naps and be able to enjoy this bliss in silence! Double bliss!! I'm spoiled and I know it!
