OK - small diversion. Back to stitching content tomorrow. Still a strumpet, struggling with project monogamy.


So, every morning for the last two years, my husband has eaten granola with yogourt. I have a very fit, handsome husband......

(The sexiest part of this photo is that he's folding laundry. Uh huh.) So, I decided that since my handsome, laundry folding husband liked his granola so much I would go to the trouble of finding a recipe that I could make for him. I started with a recipe from Recipezaar which is a site that I really like. I used recipe #76560 by NHNichole and only tweaked it slightly. I added two tbs of softened butter and only 1/2 cup of brown sugar.


  1. 1
    Pour oatmeal into a glass microwaveable dish and cook for two minutes; stirring once. [I think this is to help the mixture to come to be more manageable - you know, the heat will help the oats be coated more evenly?-C]
  2. 2
    Combine all other ingredients into a bowl.
  3. 3
    Add in oatmeal.
  4. 4
    Stir until well blended.
  5. 5
    To finish, use either the microwave or oven. Both methods are listed below --
  6. 6
    Microwave method: Pour mixture into a glass dish and microwave on high for 4 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. 7
    Stir every minute.
  8. 8
    Cool on wax paper.
    1. Enjoy!
    2. 10
      OR --
    3. 11
      Oven method: Pour mixture into a large cake pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
    4. 12
      Stir every 5 minutes.
    5. 13
      Add 1/2 cup of raisins.
    6. 14
      Cool on wax paper.
    7. 15

    So - let me know if you try it! You can always omit the raisins and coconut, or add in different dried fruit - it would be a very forgiving recipe.
