Yesterday I spent half my morning attempting to make homemade white bread.
Well, it was a huge fail!
Like throw it in the garbage kind of fail. Apparently, you can "kill" the yeast if you use too hot of water. Who knew? And yep, I killed the shit out of it. But, I'm not giving up. I will try again soon!
I did however successfully make homemade granola. This recipe was given to me by a friend and neighbor. And it SO good and SO easy.
Recipe : Homemade Granola
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
4 c. old fashioned oats
1 1/2 c. nuts, unsalted (I used sliced almonds)
3/4 t. salt
1/2 t. cinnamon
Note : I also added 1/4 c. of flax seed into mine.
Mix together the above dry ingredients.
1/2 c. coconut oil, melted
1/4 c. honey
1/4 c. packed brown sugar
1 t. vanilla
Carefully melt coconut oil, add honey and brown sugar. Mix well.
Remove from heat and add vanilla.
Pour wet ingredients over dry and mix well.
Loosely spread over aluminum foil covered pan.
Bake for 21 - 23 minutes stirring halfway through.
Cool completely on pan.
Dried fruit or chocolate chips can be added after cooling.
Store in air tight container.
This is SO good by itself or on top of yogurt!
What do you add to your granola?
