This morning I was in the mood for making some home-made granola. It doesn't involve that much... just some oatmeal, maple syrup, brown sugar, salt, a little oil, and vanilla... oh, and lots of fresh chopped nuts!
|I use almonds, cashews, pecans, and macadamia nuts
This is after 30 minutes in a 325 degree oven.
|Comes out in 1 piece after 30 mins cooling
Then I break it up and put it in tightly covered container... for us to snack on or eat for breakfast. You can crumble it if you want smaller pieces, but we like to eat it like cookies.
The only thing I do differently than is said to do in the recipe is that right before I put it in the oven, I sprinkle it with a little cinnamon sugar. Adds a little sweet to the salt, and makes the house smell marvelous while cooking. And it's yummy!!
Now for some funny photos:

We've started calling her "Mini Pearl" because of her small size and the fact that she stands out like a Pearl among all the black ferals...
