Crest Cottage Creations

Food, Family, and Fun in our little cottage…



I have been making granola since I first saw this recipe over at Kitchen Stewardship.  You may remember me posting about it on Munching Madness.  I had been following Katie’s recipe most of the time, but now I am branching out!  I am not posting the exact recipe because it is not mine, but I am noting the change I made. Trust me, this recipe is worth clicking over to see. 
I start with oats, of course, and my latest flavorings were LOTS of cinnamon, and a good bit of salt.  
In a separate glass container, I melted down 1/4 cup coconut oil, 1/8 cup honey, and 1/8 cup Maple Syrup!  That was added in with the vanilla and water.
The ingredients were all combined and baked.  I must say.  I LOVE the maple syrup version much better than the original honey ones. 
John likes them both, so they will probably both be in rotation.  I like to have it for breakfast with some dried fruit and yogurt.  MMMMmmmmm…..
