new granola

I tried a new granola today, and it's really yummy. It's from Nigella's Feast (I found a link to the recipe here so I wouldn't have to type it out). I think this would be a great granola for holiday giving--not terribly different from my other granolas I suppose, but this one is sweeter and very easy to whip up. (One thing I did change from the recipe is I added more oil--I've never made a full batch of granola that only calls for 2 tablespoons of oil, so I went ahead and added a third of a cup. I didn't want to go to the effort of making granola only to have it not crisp up!)
Sadly, I'm going to be without my camera for two more weeks at least. I really really miss it and am just realizing how much I depend on it as an everyday thing. These photos were taken with Faith's little camera (thanks, Faith, for letting me borrow it!)

I love granola! I make it with lots of seeds (sesame, pumpkin, flax, millet). Have you ever added millet? It adds a nice crunch, and tastes great toasted. Sometimes I also like to add orange rind. I use a vegetable peeler to take off the zest and a little bit of the white, chop it into small bits and bake it with the granola. This is making me hungry!

It looks nice. I was fed muesli as a child way too many times and have fond memories dry reaching as i tried to swallow every mouth full. Its been a few years and maybe i might just have another go at it (not with fingers holding nose)

I think I'll try this! I (thats me, NOT the children!) have a nut allergy and the bought ones that you can find without nuts - which is a chore itself!- are so heavily sugared. This should be ok without the almonds?
