My friend Nicole and I made some yummy yummy and more yummy homemade granola the other day. It’s so easy to make and actually really healthy. I’ve eaten it every morning with vanilla yogurt and blueberries. Mmmm mmmm mmmmm. Wanna make it? I thought so!!
2 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1/2 cup craisins
1/2 cup flaxseed
1/4 cup maple syrup
3 Tbs vegetable oil
2 Tbs warm H2O
Now you make it:
-Preheat oven to 275 degrees.
-Spray 9×13 pan
-Mix oats, wheat germ, salt, and extra ingredients (except for the dried fruit) in bowl.
-Heat syrup, oil and water to simmer on medium heat.
-Drizzle over oats and stir to combine.
-Pour mix into prepared pan.
-Use your (clean) hands or a spoon to mix ingredients together.
-Bake 30 minutes then stir in dried fruit.
-Bake 20-30 minutes longer or until golden brown.
-Cool and store up to one month in airtight container.
**this recipe will make 2 batches (I love that word) of granola so you’ll need two 9×13 pans.
Now eat it up because it’s addicting. I want some right meow. So the granola itself was good enough but we also made Harry Potter Butter Beer!! Eek! I have always been a lover of all things Harry Potter so when my friend Josiah showed me this Butter Beer recipe I had to make it. It sent Nicole and I into sugar shock but it was totally worth it.
1 bottle IBC Cream Soda
1/3 cup heavy cream
2 Tbs sugar
1 Tbs powdered sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Then you make the sweet magical goodness:
-Whip all of the ingredients (except the cream soda) to desired consistency.
-Pour Cream Soda into frosted mugs.
-Layer foam on top with spoon, let rest for 10-20 seconds for the soda to carbonate the foam.
I’m headed to Omaha in the morning. I’ll try to blog during the weekend but it’s going to be a little hectic with my work schedule and all. Signing off to finish eating the brownies I just made and watch Across The Universe. My how I love this movie.
