Whipped up some granola before class this morning… and it ended up being possibly the most delicious granola I’ve made to date. It turned out light and crunch and delicious.Recipe: Mix 3 cups oats (maybe a little more), 4 T brown sugar, sliced almonds, chia, hemp, pumpkin & flax seeds to preference (and maybe coconut shreds).
Boil 1/4 C maple syrup, 2.5 T water, and roughly 4 T coconut oil (probably not 4 full T since it’s hard to scoop), and a smidgen of vanilla to boil. Drizzle it over the dry mix, stir, and bake for 35 minutes at 375, turning halfway. Let cool before eating and try not to break up the pieces when you’re turning it.
Then at lunch I made a nice little veggie/couscous mix. 1 C couscous, 2 each zucchini and yellow squash (oven-roasted at 400 until soft mixed in olive oil/rosemary/sage), mushrooms/onions/carrots sauteed, salt/pepper/creole seasoning.
peace love and noms,
