I like granola. A lot. I know it’s generally fattening and a little goes a long way…But I like it. I like it as a cereal, I like to grab handfuls as a quick snack, and I like it on top of (atop of?) yogurt.
To go alongside the Homemade Yogurt I made over the weekend, I also made some Maple Almond Butter Granola.
I normally would make my granola with walnuts, just because I like them a lot, but as they’re one of those things I’m supposed to avoid taking too close to my levothyroxine, I went with almonds instead. That, and I used almond butter as a binder, so I figured I’d just keep the extra almond-flavoring boost.
I kind of wish I’d been able to make a double batch–I ran out of oats, though.
In other news, the bambino starts kindergarten tomorrow. I have been ultra-weepy and crying at the drop of a hat. He’s more than ready, but I’m not. I know, we all go through it, and he’ll be just fine…It’s just a huge step for him and school is much scarier than daycare. I plan to spend the day baking, so I don’t spend the day fretting.
