Anyone who knows me, knows I like to make things at home. Lots of things. Bread, Cereal, Yogurt, Granola Bars, Pasta, Chicken Broth. Tonight, it was granola 🙂 and bread, and buns, since we’re having hot dogs and sweet potato fries tomorrow (YUM). Plus fried catfish and quinoa for dinner tonight.
The granola was a happy accident. I was trying to make granola bars and found a new recipe for no bake granola bars here: http://www.kitchenstewardship.com/2010/04/08/recipe-connection-soaked-granola-bars/
But it didn’t work, probably because I didn’t really follow the recipe at all. I used a mix of butter, brown sugar, and maple syrup instead of the butter, honey and sucanet that’s in the recipe. Oh well, I was able to save the first batch by adding flour and applesauce and baking it. They were good, but the Dave said he thought the granola would have made great cereal. So, I made it again for cereal.
The bun recipe I use is from King Arthur Flour, and it’s perfect! Every time! (ok, it took a few times of getting flat, but flavorful, buns before I got it right). Now they look like this
Like I said, perfect, and oh so good.
