 There are an abundance of delicious tasting granola recipes in the blogging world.
I have tried many of them and have saved many of the recipes.
But, yesterday I found one that used four of the ingredients that I wanted to use...

~melted coconut oil
~100 % maple syrup
~raw honey
~vanilla

The recipe I discovered that did all that was shared by Pamela Salzman.
You can find it too, at ... pamelasalzman.com/granola





 Each time I opened the oven to stir the mix, I found this, and could not wait to taste it.  As with every recipe, one can adapt it to one's own personal preference.

My variation;  I used chopped, roasted almonds, and some chopped walnuts for the nut part of the recipe.
I cut up some dried cranberries that my friend gave to me.  She informed me that there is a big difference between craisins and dried cranberries.  After tasting the ones she gave to me, I totally agree.
I chopped a few of them and added them as the dried fruit part of her recipe.

This recipe will definitely go into my file.  A healthy, easy, and so delicious granola recipe.
Thank you, Pamela, for sharing it.





 One idea I may use in giving it as a gift.  My old canning jars come in handy in many ways.
Thanks to my friends who purchased a big box of them for me, at an old farm auction, years ago.





Or, just putting some in a clear, cellophane bag.  I think anyone would like receiving a bag of homemade goodness.  Add... fresh fruit, some milk and lots of hot coffee:)...instant breakfast.

Happy Thursday to each of you!

This looks delicious...what great gifts, you have packaged them so well. My daughter in South Africa uses coconut oil and tells me I should too. Is it expensive in USA? Its seems like it is here in the UK. But I expect it lasts a while.

This sounds and looks delicious, Judy. Your first photo is so attractive with the red placemat and strawberries. What a cheery way to begin the day.
Once again you excel at thinking of pretty ways to create gifts for others. I appreciate that you share these ideas and also the recipes. I have recently started using coconut oil in my cooking. I look forward to trying this granola.
