I was asked to please post the granola recipe from yesterdays blog post. This recipe has kind of changed over the years as I add or delete things from it. This is the current recipe.
6 cups old fashioned Oats
1/3 cup almond meal
1/4 cup ground flax seed
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
1/3 cup brown or white sugar
1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt – your preference
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup to 1 cup chopped nuts of your choice – this time it was walnuts
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup to 1 cup chopped dried fruit – raisins, apricots, cherries or other dried berries
Put everything in your large mixing bowl, except the fruit. Start on low and as it incorporates the liquids you can increase the speed a little – add about 1/4 cup of water to it. By adding the water to it you will have a little chunkier granola – I never used to add that and it was very dry and no big chunks then I read a recipe that added the water and I added it and liked the results. Spread the mixture on a large baking sheet – bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes, then take it out and stir it around so the browned bottom is more on the top and put it back in the oven and bake it again for about 10 minutes or longer to achieve the brownness you want. Leave it cool completely on the countertop. Stir in the dried fruit you want – if you want it and then put in a tight sealed container. Mine last several weeks and it makes around 8 cups. (as all recipes are you can make the changes you want – don’t want almond meal or flax seed – leave it out and add an extra amount of oats – don’t like dried fruit – add fresh fruit before you eat)
Not much sewing done the last couple of days – I have been getting neutral hexies basted though for Handful of Scraps which is still the same as the last photo you saw of it. Tweety Loves Quilting has a link up today lets see what everyone else will be working on.
The last hexie quilt I made – Diamonds are Forever is currently on the bed and I just love it. Hexies are addicting and I see more in the future of quilting for me.
