...continued I'm still struggling with my painting project. Yesterday I actually made some progress, but to work a second day at that energy level... hmm, I don't know. I'm trying to think of something that's more urgent than painting again today. Wait! I haven't eaten any breakfast! Good excuse to go into the kitchen. The granola I made last week would be delicious with the "cream on top" whole milk vanilla yogurt in my fridge. And there's fresh organic strawberries... Perfect! And maybe my neighbors need a tart...
GRANOLA (sauce adapted from the Good Breakfast Book)
7 1/2 cups organic rolled oats 1 cup raw wheat germ 1 cup sesame seeds 1 cup chopped almonds 1 cup dried sour cherries 1 cup dried blueberries
Sauce: 3/4 cup honey 1/4 cup corn oil 1/3 cup water 1/2 cup natural peanut butter 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Combine first four ingredients in a large bowl. Heat together sauce ingredients, spoon over the dry ingredients, then spread onto a sheet pan and bake in a 375 degree oven about 15 minutes, until dry and lightly browned. Remove from oven. Cool. Stir in the dried fruit.
