For Those Extra Hippie Weekends

The husband is on a slightly more normal schedule these days so every other weekend we get to have fancy pants breakfast together. A few weekends ago I decided to try my hand at an old hippie favorite. Granola.

Home made granola is incredibly easy to make and will make you question why you ever purchased the commercial made stuff. How much more tree-hugger can I sound amiright?

Recipe was found at Gimme Some Oven. I nixed the dried fruit and subbed olive oil for coconut oil. (Would have loved to use coconut oil but didn’t have any in the house.) Frankly on one of the first delicious Spring mornings of the year this breakfast was superb. We turned the home made granola into Greek yogurt parfaits complete with berries and honey.

DElicious. Let me tell you guys. It’s also a really quick and easy (yet very scrumptious) breakfast to throw together. The granola takes max 1/2 hour to make, you  can even make it the night before if you prefer to get up and dive into breakfast.

Light. Healthy. Scrumptious. Easy. Best Saturday morning decision you’ll make. Promise.

Brilliant.

Found this recipe from Alida’s Kitchen while trolling Pinterest (and on a health kick). The whole wheat flour made it a little dense but that means it’s filling and won’t eat the entire cake in one sitting, so that’s a good thing right? I would recommend cutting the whole wheat flour to 1 1/2 cups and add 1/2 cup of white flour to make it a little less “wheaty” (anyone who’s baked with whole what flour knows what I mean) Other than that, I would totally make this ” Health Kick” treat again.
