summertime saturdays.10

Saturday, August 30, 2008

Emily got me thinking. About granola. And how my granola jar has been empty for far too long.
So this morning I was up early, searching for a new recipe to try.  Don't you hate when you know you saw one you wanted to try but  just can't remember where?  Well, after about an hour I found it.  I made a few modifications to the recipe.  Adding 1 tablespoon of vanilla and substituting dried cranberries for the dried cherries.
We topped yogurt with it and fresh fruit.  And enjoyed one of our last slow summertime saturdays outside.  It was delicious.  As is the granola.  Go make some.  Really, you won't be sorry.

Happy long weekend!

    i make a huge batch of granola every weekend that i can...it only lasts a week in our house! i like to add lots of dried fruit ( dried cranberries, golden raisins, dried apricots, etc.) and have found that putting it in the freezer keeps it crunchy. Delicious with cold milk !
    love the blog......

  24. That sounds delicious. We have a nut allergy at our house, so I'm always looking for something to use in place of the nuts, though, to add some crunch. Any ideas?
