summer breakfast

heat is here. and my breakfast has to change. i've had this stuff basically every morning since january. time for different, though i'm not straying too far from my baked treat.

crunchy granola
(recipe adapted from food network)

Heat oven to 275.

Put 1 1/3 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup of water in a saucepan and heat til sugar dissolves.

Then stir in 4 tsps. vanilla and 1 tsp. salt

Toss that liquid with 8 cups of old fashioned oats and 2 cups of some nuts (whatever you've got that sounds good. i've added flax seed here too).


Spread this all out on 2 cookie sheets and bake for an hour.


once it is all golden-crunchy, take it out and add some dried fruit if you want. i usually have raisins.


let it cool, then either eat it or store it for later.

i love this stuff. with yogurt. yum.
