Hip Hip HOOORayy for fall! Seriously, I am loving the fall colors in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. Here’s some photos from yesterdays run…I even saw a wild turkey!
When I got home from my run, I was in one of those moods….a BAKING MOOD. Sometimes I just get the itch to create! Other times, I’m like “do I really want to destroy the kitchen and then spend a half an hour wiping everything down and making it spick and span?”
Well…my run inspired me to get some fall flavors in the air. Lone behold….
I used pretty simple ingredients, but any add ins will suffice. My ingredients included: rolled oats, extra virgin olive oil, chia seeds, raisins, and agave nectar! For spices I used cinnamon and all-spice. I also added a little bit-a salt, which really brought out the cinnamonny flavor.
My favorite way to eat granola is on top of a Chobani or with skim milk! Just love the crunch…love it!
