Love it do you have a granola recipe??


Is this the 4 nut granola you posted a while ago on Mixing Bowl kids? It looks yummy. If it isn't, please share the recipe. Always looking for great granola recipes.


I'm loving this combination of flavours. I can't seem to get enough of cranberries these days. I have got to try this soon!

Hi Ann - The four-granola still makes it onto our table quite often.  But having said that here is the recipe for my very favourite granola recipe:



So up my alley! Love the idea of serving it in jam jars.. in fact you could transport the yogurt and fruit this way if you were taking it to go, with a baggie of granola to add before you eat it! great idea - thanks! the cranberries and maple syrup sound fab, too!

Me either, Cheri!  I like them more now than I did over Christmas.


I am digging this. I've been eating blueberry/almond parfaits. Since I have a stash of cranberries in the freezer, I may just whip this up!Thanks!

P.S. I'm a newcomer here. Just discovered you the other day through mamasminutia.blogspot.com (my cousin) and I like you!

Hi Zoe - Thanks for stopping by.  Im a big fan of Jennifer Jos blog..such good stories.


Created my own version of this earlier today: plain yogurt, homemade three citrus marmalade and coconut almond granola. Two big spoons up for taste, texture and nutrition! Sadly I didn't have mine in a jam jar -- packed away currently. Think I'll rescue a couple for my fiancée and I to use for breakfast.

I love the sounds of the citrus marmalade and the coconut granola - yum!
