Hello, Monday. It's seems that you were only just here.
You keep popping up way to quickly.
Ready for this week? The first day of spring is Wednesday..woohoo! Can't wait! Unlike, last weekend,this weekend was much more relaxing and I was able to accomplish a ton. However, it did go by a bit too fast and was a whopping 30 degrees. Considering this time last year, it was 80 degrees...that was a bit of a bummer. But, alas, it was a very good weekend.
Let's break out the crock pot to start off our week. How about some granola? In the crock pot you ask? Yep..in the crock pot! It's very easy and this recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod is delicious. A little sweet, some crunch and it's perfect for breakfast or a snack. Dig in!
Here's to a good week :)
3 1/2 cups oats (old fashion)
1 cup almonds
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp allspice
3/4 cup applesauce
1 1/2 TBSP honey
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 TBSP canola oil
1 cup dried apples, chopped
In a mixing bowl, mix oats, almonds,brown sugar, ground cinnamon and allspice. Combine well. In a saucepan, warm applesauce, oil,honey and vanilla. Pour liquid over oat mixture and coat evenly. Pour all into crock pot. Cover, but, vent a bit. Cook on low for 3-4 hours, stirring frequently. Let it cool completely , then, stir in dried apples.
Store in an airtight container. Makes approx 5 cups of granola.
