Granola Home Made (Ruth Stanton)

image courtesy google search

Usually my mother enjoyed plain quick cooked oats for her breakfast, but there were times she wanted to dress up her oats a bit.

She liked making her own home made granola, and on some occasions she would spoon this granola on her bowl of oats as a topping. In the summer she would enjoy her granola with milk as a cold cereal.

When Mom needed a "pick me up," she would reach for the container in the refrigerator and enjoy a snack. It was healthy and satisfied her hunger pangs. She also found it excellent sprinkled on yogurt any time of day.

  1. Good, easy granola recipe. Thanks Gail E

  2. I remember granola, the dried dates were my favorite... still love them today...

  3. I used to make my own granola. Now I get "homemade" granola in bulk at the grocery. Love it.

  4. Oh yum. I make my own granola, too. I want to give your mother's recipe a try.

    I read a few posts that I missed. MORE! I'm thankful for the "more" in my own life. What a difference it makes.

    Giggled at your teacher story. Love that you were encouraged at a young age to keep writing.

  5. Sounds similar to my mother-in-law's granola recipe, and it is SO good! Thanks for sharing this1
