granola goodness

Since I didn't get pancakes for breakfast this morning (see previous post) I finished off the homemade crockpot granola. It's great stuff and I am about to go make another batch. I love this stuff. So do my kids, I make a batch every week to 10 days. At this point it seems that the cold cereals of choice in our house are: Cheerios, Kix, Special K, Raisin Bran and homemade granola. Probably better than all of the colorful, dye-laden cereals that we used to eat.

Recipe (modified from an earlier post):

3 C. rolled oats
2 C. barley flakes
1/2 C. ground flax
1/4 C. wheat germ
1/2 C. honey
1/2 C. oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cups dried fruit
1/2 cups nuts, broken up

mix all ingredients together
place in crockpot and stir well
turn crockpot on low
leave wooden spoon in crock to help prop lid open
stir once every 30 minutes
cook 4 hours

So good to see you posting again! I have missed keeping in touch with you. Since most of my blogging is done in the evening, I can feel like I am not taking time away from the family while doing so.

Easter Always reminds me of you! Just wish we could have that cup of tea in person...
