Since we are trapped in the house for at least the next like 18 hours because of snow, I thought I’d do some baking! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get out to the grocery store before the snow hit, so some of the things I wanted to make will have to wait until I can get the ingredients. I did finally make up a second batch of homemade granola- complete with photos and a few variations!
Uncle Steve’s Granola
4 cups old fashioned or quick oats
1 cup chopped walnuts
¼ cup vanilla hemp protein
¼ cup chopped pecans
¼ cup ground flax seed
Several shakes of pumpkin pie spice
Mix well and then add:
1/3 cup canola oil
½ cup honey/agave nectar
Mix well and then spread onto two cookie sheets. Bake at 300 degrees for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and stir in about 1 cup of dried fruit (I did a mix of chopped banana chips, dates, and golden raisins and about ¼ cup of coconut flakes). Remove promptly onto a separate cookie sheet to cool, then store in bags or sealed jar.
