Granola is one of those funny things. It can be soft, gooey and delicious or it can go the other way and become dry, over sugary and tasteless. Of course whether you like your granola chewy or crunch is always down to personal preference, the same as if you like it full of fruit or chocolate. Either way, there is good granola and bad granola.
In an attempt to keep things fresh and happening during each Meet Market, we like to attempt to bring at least one new thing to the table each time. This time, I decided to have a go at a granola recipe that I’ve been holding on to for a while. I’m not really a granola person per say, but I decided it might be the healthy alternative to something sweet that people would choose over cakes or cookies. This is one recipe I am glad I tried.
Usually by the end of every Meet Market I am sad by the fact that we have left-overs. It’s inevitable of course because you can never truly judge what the crowd wants, but also I have a knack for making triple the amount of desserts required for any event. This time though I was over joyed with having half of my granola bars unsold. I have been eating one (sometimes two) a day at work and I plan on making a whole new batch this weekend to fuel me on for another week to come. They are soft, rich, chewy, wholesome and just plain delicious. In fact, I’d go as far as saying they are the beast breakfast I have had in a long time. I am usually a yogurt in the morning type of person (yogurt or which ever box of cookies is closest to my reach in the store). THe problem with yogurt is it doesn’t keep me full for very long.
Forgive me, I’ve just realized I’m rambling. I just wanted to share my recent joys I discovered over making my own granola. I’ll take some pictures of the next batch and post them up, hopefully you will be as impressed as I still am. I just wanted to send out a thank you to the makers of the recipe who ever they may have been and let them know that they changed my morning routine.
So, thank you.
