I have a friend named Becky.
Becky and I couldn’t be more different than any two people. But we love each other.
I think we love each other because we are so different.
What I love about Becky is that she is always figuring out something new to do.
Like the time we stayed at the River Oaks Lodge outside of Ingram, Texas. I don’t think there’s any such place anymore. But back when, they provided a nice, comfy bed and breakfast every morning.
The caretaker made granola.
Of all the things there were to eat, and there were some amazing dishes, it’s that granola I ate.
I hadn’t made any in a while and something got me to remembering about it.
So I made it this past week.
I believe in breakfast.
You should make this.
And serve it with this:
When you bake this stuff, it makes your house smell lovely.
It freezes well.
IF you have any left.
18 ounce Quick Oats
1 1/2 cup Pecan sliced
1 1/2 cup Almonds sliced
7 ounce Coconut
1 cup Canola Oil
1 tablespoon Vanilla
1 cup Maple Syrup
Mix together first four ingredients. Then mix the the last four separatedly and pour over granola mix. Bake at 325 for about 25 minutes or until golden, stirring several times. Judge the bake time by tasting. My over bakes slow so it took longer than this.
