Summertime Food

It's nice to lighten up and enjoy what's fresh.  However, I have a staple at the Lazy T that is good anytime of the year.  So I am going to share my favorite granola recipe.  It is so easy to make and change to suit your taste or allergies.  It makes a good snack, too.

Makes 6 1/2 cups, serves 12 (not at my table)

3 c. old-fashioned oats
1 c. slivered almonds
1/2 c. coconut
1/3 c. honey
1/4 c. canola oil
1 c. dried cranberries
1.2 c. dried banana chips

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

Stir together oats, almonds, coconut, honey and oil in a large bowl.

Spreak in a rimmed baking pan and bake until oats are golden (about 30 minutes).  Stir often to prevent sticking.

Remove from oven, let cool, then stir in cranberries and banana chips.  Store in airtight container after completely cooled.

Substitute the fruit or nuts to taste or for variety.


Coming up next is about being a first time Bed and Breakfast guest!  Answers to many questions I receive.
