With all the homemade things out there, granola was last on my radar. Not for any reason, other than I just never thought about it. A good friend of mine makes her own granola and I thought I should do this...I COULD do this! So I did. We would eat granola around here more often if it wasn't so expensive. I love to have it in my greek yogurt, and its good for you! (minus all the sugar, which is why I wanted to make it myself so I could control the amount of sugar that went in).
So, I got my friend's recipe and took a shot at it.
I bought some off-brand old fashioned oats and applesauce and set to work.
Doesn't that look appetizing? No? It doesn't to me either. I'm not sure even the dog would eat that. I was sorta bummed, but that's to be expected. I usually mess up the first time I cook something.
So, I tried again. I put less applesauce, more honey, and cooked it for a shorter amount of time.
Then I ran out of oats. Boo. I will try this again, (I want to try THIS recipe) and hopefully will continue to do it once I get the hang of it. It's much more healthy, and way more cost effective...not to mention, SO yummy!
Next week: this is kind of silly, but I desperately need to get our family ornament done this year because last year's didn't get done at all...and I'm sad about that. So, I need to put a time frame on it and just do it. You guys will keep keep me accountable, right? :)
