This granola is my favorite thing to pair with greek yogurt and fruit. I discovered this recipe a couple of years ago and have kept it stored away. It has great flavor. Here are a few pictures with the recipe at the end. I hope that you give it a try!
1/4 cup honey 1/4 cup brown sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 cups whole oats (not quick cooking kind) 1/4 cup wheat germ 2 teaspoons cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon salt
In a small pot, combine honey, brown sugar, and vanilla. Heat over medium until sugar and honey are combined and smooth. Make sure to stir it a couple of times.
In a bowl, combine oats, wheat germ, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well.
Pour honey mixture over the oat mixture and stir well.
Pour granola onto a sheet pan that has been sprayed or has a silpat. (I just use parchment paper)
Bake at 325 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Make sure you stir the granola often, maybe every 5 minutes or so — This is important! It will burn without frequent stirring. Trust me. I’ve done it.
Let cool on sheet pan and enjoy it! It will become crunchy as it cools and breaks from the parchment paper easily. If stored in an airtight container it will keep well.
Before my trip I shared with you the recipe for these chips. Now I want to share the recipe for the spinach dip. It is so delicious.
Here is what I did. I halved the original recipe and as you can see it still made plenty.
These are the ingredients.
For the batch pictured here you need:
8oz, plain greek yogurt
8-9oz. fresh spinach
1/2 clove of garlic– minced
1 Tablespoon olive oil
dash of cayenne pepper
Not pictured is the cayenne pepper that I added- that was a last minute decision. The yogurt is 16oz, but I only used 8oz. That leaves some for a second batch or some to eat with fresh fruit. I used all of the 9oz. of the fresh spinach.
First you need to get a pot of water boiling. Add a little salt. Add the spinach and let it boil until it starts to wilt, but is still bright green. This should not take long– 4-5 minutes.
Drain the spinach and let it cool.
Get out all of the excess water and then chop the spinach.
Mince the garlic. Saute the garlic with the olive oil until it is just starting to brown– About one minute.
Add the chopped spinach in with the garlic. Saute for another 2-3 minutes. Add some other seasoning here if you would like.
Add it to the yogurt and you are all done!
Enjoy your new and healthy snack!
