My dear blogger friend at Quiet Paws and I made a promise to make granola this month. And blog about it of course!
I wonder what the difference is between muesli and granola? A Google search tells me that granola is toasted in honey and oil, which this recipe is. Does anyone know the answer?
Honey & oil pre-heating. Spices spilt on the bench.
Baking, blogging & apple eating in the kitchen.
Golden, crunchy, toasty stuff fresh out of the oven.
Making muesli always takes me back to when my mum made toasted muesli each week. Being very active, we needed a lot of fuel and I have fond memories of the simple, wholesome food we ate and sitting on the kitchen bench while mum retrieved the muesli from the oven.
As I made this, I also thought of Tracey. Would Jones and Baxter be nearby as she pottered in the kitchen? (Follow her on Instagram and you will find that Jones is surely the most smiley cat you have ever seen and Baxter looks super chilled and cuddly.) What does her kitchen look like? I know it has a big clock in it. Where would she get the recipe from? It was fun to be virtually sharing in this experience together.
To celebrate, I set myself up with a lovely date-for-one of green tea, a jug of almond milk, fresh figs and blueberries. Yum. Don’t forget to click over to Quiet Paws to see her homemade granola/muesli. Also, leave me a comment if you would like to join us for the April challenge and I will email you details.
One hand pouring, the other photographing. I is tricky.
