Light & Crispy Honey-Almond Granola

Light & Crispy Honey-Almond Granola

We are granola obsessed in this house. Last winter I was making practically a new flavour every month. Then one day I bought a package of granola from the store that claimed to be light and crisp. After one bowl I knew I needed to up my granola game. It really was light and crisp…

No-Bake Maple Walnut Granola Clusters

No-Bake Maple Walnut Granola Clusters

This recipe came about as kind of a mistake. I was attempting to make a new granola bar recipe using unprocessed sugars and the results were one crumbly, crispy granola bar that ended up basically just turning into granola. So we crumbled some up and made parfaits with unsweetened yogurt and fruit. Oh my goodness…

Peppermint Mocha Granola

I’ve gotten into the habit of making a different granola recipe each month, depending on the flavours of the season. My family loves granola and it’s pretty hard to get sick of it when you’re having new flavours all the time. December is the month of peppermint so naturally the first flavour combination to come…

Next week I’ll be decorating my house and listening to Christmas music all day long, with no shame involved!

Merry Christmas!! It’s less than a month away so I can officially say that now right? I’ve been holding off because I know so many of you had Thanksgiving to celebrate yet. I think Canadians tend to start celebrating Christmas before Americans. Can you blame us? Our Thanksgiving is at the beginning of October and…

Easy Almond Granola

I know this might sound a bit strange but I’ve created a schedule for our breakfasts during the week. Not because I’m anal, but because my son has become a food snob and if we eat the same thing too many times he simply won’t eat it. I’m not even a food snob but somehow…

Remember how I told you I like to scarf down granola bars in the middle of the night but since I haven’t been able to find any here yet I’ve been eating spoonfuls of peanut butter instead? Well, it was just too much for me to bear so I decided to create my own. I may have a…
