It’s not December.
But I miss gingerbread and eggnog. And I’m getting a little tired of the same old granola every day.
Click on the granola for the link to the recipe. You know those awesome ginger snaps that you buy in the brown paper bags? That’s what this tastes like. Add a little milk and it’s like cookies and milk for breakfast. Except it’s all natural – ginger, crystalized ginger (okay, I’m not sure if that is “all natural” or not, molasses, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon; you know, the basics. This recipe is definitely going into the “Big Book.”
My little assistant, Noah, was a big help with all his stirring and pouring that makes granola such a great kitchen project to do with kids.
I had a little trouble finding the crystalized ginger until I remembered I had seen it in the bulk bins at our local grocery store. If you can’t find it at your grocery store, try a Whole Foods, Central Market, Trader Joes or other health food or epicurean store. I promise, it’s worth the trouble.
