If you are not familiar, it's a term people use to describe someone who is a bit on the rugged side, earthy, probably makes chai from scratch and can, without much effort, throw on anything and pull it off. Again... not me, but I love my granola friends!
I also love... making GRANOLA! My roommate brought a recipe she actually got from her roomie last year and we made it yesterday and WOW. So good! I thought I would indulge you with the recipe and encourage you to try your own variations and report back!
YUMMY GRANOLA Preheat oven to 250 then combine wet/dry ingredients in separate bowls. dry: 2 cups wheat flour 6 cups oats (steel cut if you can find em) 1 cups coconut 1 cup wheat germ 1 cup chopped nuts 3 T powdered milk 1t cinnamon (i would add a touch more) 1 t salt (also add almonds, craisins, sunflower seeds, etc. to your liking)
wet: 1/2 cup water 1 cup oil 1 cup honey 2 t vanilla
Combine wet and dry together and mix thoroughly. Spread onto 2 cookie sheets and bake for 30 minutes. Flip and bake 30 more minutes. It's best if it is spread out thin - crispier that way.
eat on its own, with yogurt or milk... all the time!!
