I have two fabulous recipes that I absolutely have to share with you.
Here is the first, and I will post the other one a bit later:
I made this oh-so-yummy granola from Ellie Krieger’s The Food You Crave on Thursday evening, and I cannot stop eating it. The toasted nuts are so tasty and it smell like warm apple pie when you are baking it. Mmm … fall is in the (kitchen) air. I doubled the batch and we are already almost through the first. Make this a Sunday project!
3 cups old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup chopped raw, unsalted walnuts
1/2 cup chopped unsalted almonds
1/2 cup chopped unsalted pecans
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins, optional (I made it with 1/4 cup raisins, 1/4 cup dried blueberries.)
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl combine the oats, nuts, maple syrup, salt, cinnamon and the raisins, if using. Spread the mixture onto the baking sheet and bake until golden brown, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes. Transfer the sheet to a cooling rack and let cool completely. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
Take a look-y at the final product at top — Dan put some nutty granola on top of his yogurt and finished it off with some fresh strawberries. Soooo good!
