Morey Girls Granola

Here’s another good granola recipe to throw on the pile! It was supposed to be the “Morey Girls Granola” from Carrie Morey’s Callie’s Biscuit Cookbook, but I ended up changing so many things I’m not sure Carrie would recognize it. Whether you go off the rails like I did or use Carrie’s ingredients, it’s a […]

Make the Bread, Buy the Butter

I have a long list of favorite granola recipes and recently added one more.  It’s from Jennifer Reese’s book, Make the Bread, Buy the Butter: What You Should (and Shouldn’t!) Cook from Scratch to Save Time and Money. For me, this book falls into the very special category of “books that get lost between the […]

(Almost) No-Bake Granola Bars

A few months ago I was making tons of granola and eating it all myself. It was so tempting! I couldn’t pass the pantry without opening the little recycled peanut butter jarand getting a handful — not just once, but over and over during the course of the day. Granola is not exactly a low […]

Granola with Quinoa

Granola with quinoa

Last week I complained about the flavor of quinoa, but rather than write it off completely, I’ve done a little more research and have continued trying to find ways to use it. Based on what I’m learning about quinoa, it’s worth it. It’s nutritious, plus it makes granola look a lot more interesting. Prepared like […]

Applesauce and Agave Granola

To celebrate the opening of our new neighborhood Whole Foods, I made some granola similar to that which they sell in their bakery – or at least the Whole Foods Union Square bakery. I haven’t spotted this granola in the new neighborhood store, and may not since the stores carry different items, but I really […]

Tropical Granola for Gift Giving

tropical granola

Here’s a handy tip:  Start recycling empty peanut butter jars now so that in December, you can take them out, fill them with treats and give as little gifts. Unlike pickle jars, peanut butter jars are odor free after a couple of washes. This jar is full of the latest, greatest granola. As mentioned, I […]

Extra Chunky Granola

Chunky granola

If there’s a blog dedicated to granola, don’t tell me about it because I’ll be compelled to try every recipe and will subsequently be buried in mounds and mounds of granola. Then again, maybe not. It’s one of those treats that’s so easy to wrap and share. Plus people react differently to a gift of […]
