This morning I woke up to a beautiful sunny day, but when I came upstairs there wasn’t a lot of food around for breakfast. I decided to look through the cupboards for ingredients to make something delicious.
Here is what I ended up with: Honey Cranberry Granola and Hot Cocoa
3 cups quick cooking rolled oats
¾ cup hulled raw sunflower seeds
¼ cup raw sesame seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ cup honey
⅔ cup canola oil
1 cup dried cranberries
Mix the first four ingredients; I always mix directly in a 10”x10” pan. Then in a small bowl warm the honey and mix in the oil. Pour the liquid over the oat mixture and mix well. Spread in a 9”x9” pan or on a baking sheet if you like it well done. Cook in 350˚F preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until granola is golden. When you remove from the oven immediately add the cranberries, and then leave in the pan until completely cooled. Transfer to an air-tight container for storage.
Easy Hot Cocoa
3 cups milk
2½ tbsp cocoa (plus more if needed)
2 tbsp sugar (plus more if needed)
Put the milk in a medium saucepan, heat over low-med heat. Add the cocoa ½ tablespoon at a time, until preferred taste. Do the same with the sugar. Ensure milk is heated through, but do not let it boil. Enjoy while hot.
