Yogurt + summery nectarine + fresh blueberries + crunchy homemade granola = the perfect 5-minute breakfast!
It’s been a while since I made granola from scratch, and I have no idea why. It’s so simple to make, and best of all, it makes the house smell amazing!
I partnered with Morgenhaan to showcase their beautiful measuring cups and spoons. If your current set of measuring cups is warped, leftover from the 90’s or missing a cup or spoon, you should think about buying this set! Who knew that so much thought could go into the design of measuring. But once I started using these a few weeks ago, I really did appreciate their shape so much – especially the spoons that fit so well into skinny bottles and jars! They are made of 18/8 stainless steel, have flat bottoms so they won’t tip, are dishwasher safe (a must!) and stack together perfectly in a drawer. I think the best feature is that they are etched on the inside so that you can see the 1/3, 1/2 or 3/4 volume mark on the inside of the larger cups, so you can measure more with only one cup out.
I have an Amazon coupon from Morgenhaan to share with you all for 10% off: KATHEATS. Just put it in at the Amazon cart checkout : )
So, let’s do a little measuring, shall we?
This recipe uses red quinoa for extra protein, color and crunch! Buttery walnuts and rolled oats make up the bulk of the bite, and oat flour helps to clump it together a bit.
Butter, honey, vanilla, and cinnamon bring it all together.
Start by mixing all the ingredients into a large bowl.
Mix the butter throughout to ensure everything is evenly coated. Clean hands work well for this!
Once everything is moist and clumpy (lovely description, huh?!), pour onto a half-sheet pan covered in parchment and bake at 325 degrees for about 25 minutes, stirring once in the middle to ensure even cooking.
It smells so good!
Serve anywhere you need a little more crunch in your life.
