i cannot BELIEVE how amazingly fun this has been so far!!! sharon and susan campbell, you’ve got more granola coming your way!!! and no need to charge shipping and handling ~ i’m having too much fun to nickel and dime you! i just can’t believe how much everybody loves it! YIPPEEEEEE!!!
i also discovered another really healthy option that is even more delicious ~ molasses instead of maple syrup. or in addition to, at least. turns out blackstrap molasses is really good for you. here’s what i read at earthclinic.com:
“Thanks to the wonderful feedback we have received over the past eight years, blackstrap molasses appears to be making headlines as one of the best home remedies around! We have emails from our readers about blackstrap molasses curing cancerous tumors, fibroid tumors, anxiety, constipation, edema, heart palpitations, anemia, arthritic pain, joint pain, and acne, just to name a few. It has also been reported that molasses turns gray hair back to its original color and is a wonderful skin softener!”
you should read more about it. it’s amazing. so i added it to a batch and it was SO GOOD.
on that note ~ my friend toni has asked for an ingredient list. my pleasure, toni!
the base of the granola stays the same:
- BASE OF THE GRANOLA: oats, ground flax seed, a variety of nuts, spices, vanilla, coconut oil (organic extra virgin), and a mixture of the following: blackstrap molasses, agave nectar, maple syrup, and honey. maybe not ALL of those, but definitely the molasses and the honey. i’m keeping the sugar content as low as possible.
- APPLE COBBLER ADDITIONS: golden raisins and green granny smith apples that have been baked in the oven with cinnamon and a dash of sugar.
- VERY BERRY ADDITIONS: a mixture of dried strawberries, cherries, cranberries, blueberries, and golden raisins.
- CHOCOLATE VERSION SOON TO COME!
this granola is made specifically for each customer, so it’s easy to request gluten-free or leave out the nuts or whatever. $5 a container, and each container is about 2 1/2 cups of granola.
thanks, customers, for loving this product! i am having a blast with this!!!
