When your yogurt feels like snot in your mouth unless you add something to it
When your messiah-style sandals and left-leaning political views aren’t crunchy enough
When you want people to hear you eating from across the street
Granola yeahhh yeahh
Ingredients (adapted very closely to “Killer Granola” in The Cheese Board Collective Works”)
- 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
- Pinch of salt
- 1.5 cups chopped nuts (I used 2 parts pecans and 1 part walnuts)
Preheat your oven to 325F. Melt the butter in a large saucepan and add the salt. Add the chopped nuts and stir for about 5 minutes on medium.
- 2 tsp honey
- 2 tsp maple syrup
- 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
Once the nuts are toasty but not burned, turn off the heat and add the honey and brown sugar, stirring to mix.
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cups rolled oats
- 3/4 cup coconut flakes
- 1/3 cup toasted sesame seeds
Put these four ingredients into a large glass or metal bowl, and pour the nut mixture on top and mix with a large spoon. Spread this out onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake in the oven for 15 minutes, opening to stir the granola around every 5 minutes or so. Watch carefully for anything burning…your oven may be stronger or weaker than mine! Let the granola cool completely on the baking sheet and then store in an air-tight container.
