BOY am I glad it’s Friday! As Calder might say, “awesome, wow!” (we’ve been listening to a lot of the Hamilton soundtrack lately). So yes, FRIDAY!
This particular Friday means two things: one – I’m on a flight east to start some early Thanksgiving celebrations with my family (hooray!) and two – weekend baking! Double hooray!!
This weekend, I challenge you to make your own granola. It’s easy (the measurements below aren’t set in stone, so take any liberties you like), satisfying, and this pumpkin version in particular will make your house smell like the tiny fairies of Autumn sneezed warm spices everywhere (and I say that with the utmost respect/admiration for those guys).
One batch of this stuff will yield you a healthy, delicious and très seasonal breakfast (either with milk, yogurt, or sprinkled over a warm bowl of oatmeal) for the upcoming week and beyond. It makes a great gift, and also freezes nicely for future breakfasting/snacking.
Happy Friday, everyone! Let’s get to baking!
