Today we started Phase 3... the last phase of The Maker's Diet. We ate some steel-cut oats (soaked for 24 hrs prior) with vanilla, cinnamon, and sliced banana. Tasty. Filling. Healthy. And good for energy! For lunch we ate chicken tacos with all-natural cactus tortillas and pepper-jack cheese. But what I'm REALLY excited about is a granola recipe I'm making!!! Seriously, I wish there was a way I could post the aroma this mixture gave before, during, and after baking. The smell was scrumptious! I had some of the mix before baking and... WOW!!!! When they are finished, they have almost a chewy cookie texture, but are way healthier and just as yummy (if not more)! You have got to give this one a try! It was real simple, too. I used soaked and dehydrated nuts, but I don't know if that's necessary since they get baked to 350 degrees for this recipe anyway.. Hmm..?
I modified my recipe from these two:
Let me know how yours turn out!
|Still too crumbly to take out of pan; but not too crumbly to enjoy! So delicious!!!|
