At Least Twice A Week

Archive for the ‘Snacks’ Category

I joined a group called ‘Martha Mondays”.  I found it on the Martha and Me Blog.  It’s really great, kind of a Julia and Julie type thing.  Brette, the blog writer, spent a year doing Martha Stewart type activities, cooking, a little crafting, general organizing.  And if you are a Martha fan like I am you will enjoy reading her stuff.

Anyway…The group gets a new recipe or craft to work on for the week and post their results.  This is the first one I have been able to do but love that I can share it with everyone.

I haven’t ever thought of making granola before and had read the recipe in the February issue of Living before the ‘Martha Monday’ was announced so I was happy about it.  It’s very simple, oats, coconut chips (I left these out), brown sugar, maple syrup, pecans, raisins and I added dried cranberries.  The most labor intensive thing is having to stir in every 10 minutes for 40 minutes while it is in the oven, however, when you toss some in your mouth it tastes better than the bars you buy.

Hubby likes it and he usually doesn’t enjoy maple flavored anything and I’m thinking about pouring milk on it and eating  it like cereal.  I can see making this at Christmas time for gifts it was that good. This is definitely a keeper.
