Update & Favorite Granola

Happy Hump Day! I am currently en route to Fairhope from Baton Rouge, I took advantage of a lighter cookie week to travel with Bowen and we’ve had a ball.

We might should call our trip the spring food tour. Its been an eating extravaganza at all his favorite spots in lower Louisiana–bbq at The Shed in Ocean Springs then onto raw oysters and Abita in the French Quarter, dinner at John Folse’s R’evolution and today we’ve enjoyed some greek food in Baton Rouge.

I’ve already gotten Bowen to agree to a supper of roasted veggies and salad. I have enjoyed indulging but am looking forward to veggie fueling.

And I plan on making my second batch of this delicious granola this afternoon. I have posted a version of this recipe before (my mother in law’s recipe from Deer Valley)..I changed the recipe up a bit by eliminating the sugar and added in some things and I love it so much.

My very favorite granola recipe yet.

There are some ingredients I don’t love in this recipe but you need to include them to achieve the right consistency of the mix. This granola taste JUST LIKE blueberry muffin streusel topping. It’s almost like a really chewy oatmeal cookie but better. Bowen said I should call this dessert instead of breakfast. Leave a comment below and let me know if you make it!
