a special homecoming granola

yummy'nola gor the auntie

With banana….or without banana? This granola is tired, now, and….true! πŸ˜€










Some of you may, already, know that my aunt travels for her work quite a bit. Well, today she’s arriving home from out-of-town and I thought I’d surprise her with some “auntie-homecoming-granola!”

The line-up:


homecoming g'nola!

1/2 c. raisins


1/2 c. dried cranberries

'nola gor the auntie

2 c. oats


1/2 c. honey

homecoming g'nola!

plus a dash of salt!

homecoming g'nola!

Mix all ingredients together in large bowl until well combined! Then spread mixture onto baking pan and pop into 350 degree oven for 1.5 hours! Check baking/drying process every 30 minutes to ensure no burning!

homecoming g'nola!

And then skip around for joy that your friend/roommate/aunt/loved-one will be arriving home shortly while you wait for homecoming granola to bake!

Okay, okay…If you MUST try a bit before your loved-one arrives home, I won’t tell anyone…

This homemade granola goes really well with yogurt, soygurt, sliced banana, coconut butter drizzle or any of your favorite toppings!
