homemade granola

i know quite a few people who make granola from scratch. i like granola so i’m not sure what took me so long to try making it.

this past week i stumbled across a farming type of blog, written by one of my college professors. i was intrigued to read what she and her husband are doing. she has quite a few tasty looking recipes on her website and of course the granola recipe caught my eye. it sounded simple and healthy so last night i made a version of her recipe. the kitchen smelled so so good while it was baking. randy and i both like the finished product and i imagine this will become a regular item in our pantry.

i'm sort of obsessed with putting food in mason jars. it's a way to store things.

i’m also somewhat, (ok, totally), obsessed with taking pictures of food. i love cooking and i enjoy taking pictures. and yes, i enjoy looking at pictures of food. did you know that there is a book (perhaps more than one) on how to take quality pictures of food?! i’m not the only one who’s obsessed and i’m certainly far from professional. it’s a hobby 🙂 our good camera basically lives on the kitchen counter.

homemade granola + greek yogurt + my favorite dish with a handle = a lekker breakfast!

you can add all sorts of grains, nuts or spices to this granola. i could have gone crazy at the bulk section of our health foods store buying ingredients, but i didn’t want to make $25 granola. i’d say that this batch cost a few dollars. hard to know because so many of the ingredients i bought in bulk. excited to vary the recipe and try new things.
