And the sugar-free granola said, "EAT ME!"

I love to cook in the kitchen with Joel. It's so much fun and we have been working on killer recipes! We got rid of cable so instead of watching tv, we cook, bake, read, or work on projects (Joel recently showed me how to use flash professional so that I could make cool intereactive projects). It's all fun. MMM! The best thing we have made so far, is our Granola. We created it from several other recipes and put our spin on it. I'm not that great at measuring; I usually just dump stuff in a bowl and mix it until it looks good. So this is the best I can do for now. Maybe next time i'll measure and write down what I did.

oats 5 cups
sliced almonds 1 cup
unsweetend coconut flakes 3 cups
enouph hazlenut milk to make is moist
canola oil 3/4 cup
agave 3/4 cup
vanilla
cinnamon

dried rasberries

Put the oats, almonds and coconut in a big bowl and poor hazlenut milk over it to make it moist so that it will clump together better when baked. (real hazlenut milk, not milk that tastes like hazlenut. i bet almond milk would taste good too. i'm thinking maybe coconut milk next time.) Put some cinamon in and mix it well. Then you have to wisk the canola oil and agave together in a separate bowl and add vanilla until you think it tastes yummy. TASTE IT! mmmm... it tastes soooo good (like honey!). Then pour it on the granola and mix it. yummy yummy yummy. I didn't want to cook it because it tasted really good raw.

Spread it all out on two parchment paper lined cookie sheets and bake for 30 minutes at 400, mixing twice (we left it in an additional 10 minutes that last time). add raspberries after if you want.

I like to eat it like cereal with the hazlenut or rice milk on top. Hope someone out there wanted a granola recipe. Maybe it will just spark that hidden desire in someone to make their own granola. The granola voice is saying "make me, bake me, eat me."

Now we are trying to perfect our bread! :-)
