A place to store and share the things I make.

Monday, June 6, 2011


At my husband's suggestion, we had a lovely breakfast picnic this morning.  We had 2 beautiful sunny days this weekend and were hoping for a third; it was a bit on the cool side but decidedly picnic-worthy.  Today was the first day I have really had to rest/recover from last weekend's busy trip to Washington.  We shared a house full of love and fun and hugs and laughs as we celebrated Seth & Molly's wedding, and left exhausted and joyful.  Family is a good thing.  So is breakfast.

 Aunt Shannon's  Granola Recipe (Adapted from Body + Soul)

3 cups oats (Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free oats for me)
1/8 cup flax meal (I added wheat germ to Graham's)
1 tsp cinnamon
a dash of cardamom, nutmeg, ginger, cloves
dash salt

Mix together

1/2 cup apple juice
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup honey

Mix it all together.  Spread on parchment paper on cookie sheet, and bake at 325 for 15 minutes.  Stir it up, then add dried fruit (we added coconut and dried cherries).  Bake 8 minutes more.  It keeps soft if you store it in the fridge.  Yum!

We added chopped almonds and sesame seeds, and at the end added some candied ginger.
