After making Pumpkin Granola the last month. I think I’ve stumbled on a new addiction. I love, love, LOVE granola but the stuff is so pricy. On the flip side, it’s so cheap and easy to make. Well, I’m not 100% sure about the cheap side. My kitchen is filled with mason jars of dried fruits, nuts, beans and grains, so I generally have a cup or two on hand of any necessary ingredient. The only things I had to go out and buy was some extra oats (which by the way are REALLY cheap right now–Christmas baking anyone?) and coconut.
I love granola–a bit over plain yogurt, drizzled with honey, or even by the handful. My husband on the other hand eats it like cereal, by the bowlful. I’ve encouraged granola like cereals, but apparently not the same. Sorry, but granola isn’t exactly cheap and the cup rather than quarter cup makes us run through it pretty quickly. Not to mention eating that much adds a lot of calories, but that’s besides the point. So I decided buying these 2-3 cup bags for $5 was not working for our budget.
