My church proved to me how wonderful it is to be a part of the body of Christ by setting up a meal train over the last few weeks. It was an amazing gift for a new mama!
One lady actually changed my future plans for when I bring meals to people. She brought me many things that could make up multiple meals and were quick and easy. She brought homemade chicken salad with a big container of croissants (perfect for throwing a sandwich together with a crying baby on one arm). She also brought a container of Greek yogurt, another container of blueberries, another of cut-up strawberries, and another of homemade granola. It was amazing for throwing together a healthy breakfast or snack. I loved it, and got many meals out of it. (This is saying something considering I am not a huge yogurt fan)
So I asked her for the granola recipe to share with you all. I loved the taste of the granola, and my husband loved it because it was a little crunchy without being too hard. He always complained about granolas that I bought because they were so hard they would cut up the roof of his mouth (ouch!).
So here is the recipe for you all (it is also VERY affordable, which you all know is right up my alley).
All the ingredients you need are:
-1 Cup Olive Oil
-1 Cup Light Brown Sugar
I also added:
- 3/4 cup almonds, which I chopped in the food processor
-almost an entire bag of mini chocolate chips
***The Greek yogurt she brought me was Chobani brand vanilla with chocolate chunks in it (changed my life!), so I saved money by buying vanilla Greek yogurt and adding mini chips to the granola.
Add add ingredients together except chocolate chips and put in a pan. Roast at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, stirring at least every 10 minutes as it burns easily.
