summertime saturdays.10

Emily got me thinking. About granola. And how my granola jar has been empty for far too long.
So this morning I was up early, searching for a new recipe to try.  Don't you hate when you know you saw one you wanted to try but  just can't remember where?  Well, after about an hour I found it.  I made a few modifications to the recipe.  Adding 1 tablespoon of vanilla and substituting dried cranberries for the dried cherries.
We topped yogurt with it and fresh fruit.  And enjoyed one of our last slow summertime saturdays outside.  It was delicious.  As is the granola.  Go make some.  Really, you won't be sorry.
Happy long weekend!

i make a huge batch of granola every weekend that i can...it only lasts a week in our house! i like to add lots of dried fruit ( dried cranberries, golden raisins, dried apricots, etc.) and have found that putting it in the freezer keeps it crunchy. Delicious with cold milk !
love the blog......

Oh, yummy. That looks so good. I just finally got around to making your (or Heather's) Banana Bread recipe. It would have been really awesome if I hadn't undercooked the middle. :(

I love granola. Looking at this post is making me excited. I am off to Vancouver Island on Monday and there is a store there that sells the most wonderful granola made for them by a local person. I can't wait to buy some.

Elizabeth said...

That granola looks very tasty. I always have the issue that I can't remember where I saw a recipe online. If you ever come up with a good system, let me know!

That sounds delicious. We have a nut allergy at our house, so I'm always looking for something to use in place of the nuts, though, to add some crunch. Any ideas?

Suzanne said...

I made some!! Turned out great. Skipped the pumpkin seeds, I'm not crazy about them, but its very simple and delicious!!
Thanks for the inspiration!
