I was stoked to be doing an afternoon ride and the weather was amazing. Do I overuse my thumbs? Maybe. Or maybe everyone else under uses them.
Short sleeves and shorts in January? I love Arizona winters!
Bringing it home just as the sun sets. Gorgeous. I was so happy. What a way to usher in a new week.
We love granola in our house and we go through it quickly. I buy all different brands but it gets expensive so I make it a lot too. I have made it a million ways with a million different ingredients but I always go back to one simple and fast recipe I learned a while back.
You can have granola is a matter of 15 min or so. Can't beat that. I am pretty sure you need this recipe so here it is.
Stove Top Granola
adapted from Light and Tasty
2 cups old fashion oats or quick cooking
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon butter1/4 cup pecans or other nut
2 tablespoons dried cranberries or other dried fruit
2 tablespoons flaked coconut
In a large nonstick skillet, toast oats over medium heat until golden brown. Remove and set aside. In the same skillet, cook and stir the brown sugar, honey and butter over medium-low heat until bubbly, about 1-2 minutes.
Stir in the almonds, raisins, coconut and oats until coated. Cool.
Store in an airtight container.
I substitute all the different nuts (today I used pipitas) and fruit (we love dried apricots cut up).
*revised: You don't have to toast the oats if you are really hungry for granola. :-)Use your imagination.
