I love, love, love this granola. I don’t think there is anything quite as lovely as a bowl of good yogurt, some fresh blackberries or raspberries, and a generous amount of homemade granola. There isn’t! Nothing beats it for brecky (that’s breakfast in Australian) or mid day snack, or late night snack. Yum!!
I stole this recipe 10 years ago at a Great Harvest convention. We were in the wilds of Montana, sleeping on itsy-bitsy cots, and housed in Teepee’s. There were a lot of other folks in our Tee Pee, and I had a nursing baby. I remember it well—-I wonder why:) Anyways, every morning for breakfast the folks in the lodge would put out a large spread of goodies, but my favorite was the enormous bowl of granola and yogurt. It was so good. So being the nursing mother I was at the time, I felt like everyone owed me something, and I walked right into the kitchen and demanded the recipe. Actually I asked very kindly if the nice cook would share some hints to why her granola was so good. I totally expected her to be one of those recipe nazi’s that won’t share. It’s inhuman to not share recipes–it makes me want to find out the recipe even more, and then share it with the world. But the nice cook lady shared! She shared! Can you believe it? She shared! She pointed me to a yellow sheet of legal paper and said, “Copy it down honey. Here’s a pen.” I will forever be in this woman’s debt. I love her. It’s really that good.
So don’t buy another quart of yogurt until you’ve made a grundle of this stuff. You will love me, and forever be in my debt for sharing. Actually I do it because I love my friends! I’ll share anything with you———just not James!
