Once again winter has reared its ugly, windy head here in southwest Manitoba, and the kids are home from school. By noon we are all going a little stir crazy! Lucky for me I picked the mail up the day before and my sanity is being saved by a wonderful new cookbook Brown Eggs and Jam Jars by Aimée Wimbush-Bourque.
So I opened up the book and found a recipe we could make right away! Maple Walnut Granola! Boom! Let’s do this! My kids love yogurt and I refuse to buy granola from the store when I know I can make it at home! BUT we are snowed in so some modifications were made – we changed it to Maple Almond Granola! And let the notes on the page begin!
The kitchen SMELLED SO GOOD!! And the kids could barely wait to eat this granola goodness! We ended up making two batches because it was that good! My two youngest were beyond excited to help make this and then we’re beyond excited to “taste test” it! And I like that I could use one of my many jars of applesauce that are in my cold room (the rest of the jar is already being made into fruit roll ups!)
I can’t wait to see what other treasured recipes are in this book! But right now I’m going to go have a granola snack! #winning
