Granola – By Request!
Not too long ago Rahzh let you know that we take requests. A few of you stepped up to the plate and we recently gave a yummy granola recipe a whirl. We are making it for the second time tonight so that ought to tell you that we loved this really easy breakfast dish and also love that we have been able to stop buying cereal on our weekly grocery shopping excursions because this has taken its place in a big way!
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup flour
3/4 cup vegetable/canola oil
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup maple syrup (or brown sugar)
3/4 cup cup soy milk (or rice etc.)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
cinnamon, nutmeg, raisins, and nuts to taste
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Spread evenly into a baking pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 24 minutes, stirring every 8 minutes but check in the last few minutes again to prevent from it from burning. (We learned the hard way!)
This is another insanely easy but yummy recipe. It makes just about two weeks of cereal for the 2 of us (in addition to protein shakes). For some reasons the pictures we tried to take of this one didn’t come out so great but picture the tastiest looking granola you’ve ever seen and that’s exactly what this is. Until next time. NOM.
