Note From Mommypotamus: Today’s recipe for crunchy, maple goodness comes from Carol of Ditch the Wheat. Her cookbook recently came out and it’s fantastic! We’re talking grain-free pizza pockets, nachos, three kinds of cheesecake, tart cherry gumdrops, gummy worms and salami basil fig bites, so no procrastinating, mmmkay? Grab it here.
Maple Granola ~ It’s Easier Than You Think!
I’m Carol Lovett from Ditch the Wheat and I am thrilled to be sharing a recipe from my new cookbook. I have been a huge fan of Mommypotamus for a long time. I finally got to meet my hero in July. I’ve been living in Nashville for a few months and I was invited to see Heather’s farm and meet her family. It was an epic adventure full of goat kisses and walks through a dream backyard.
Have you seen pictures of where they live? It’s paradise! I was at their farm taking pictures of the goats and chickens for a future secret project. Their mama goat was nibbling on my shorts, which was really funny, but you would have thought I had granola in my pocket.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would make granola. It always seemed so intimidating to me. I finally mustered up the courage to make some and realized it’s easy peasy. Really you just take a bunch of nuts and seeds you enjoy and add some maple syrup, then add flavorings like vanilla and cinnamon. The next step is to bake it and break it apart once it’s cool. Try not to eat it all at once. It’s very addicting!
