Vanilla Coconut Snacking Granola ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #coconutoil #healthy #natural #lowsugar #homemade #granola #recipe

My yoga friend Sue went to Mexico last month. When she came back, all she could talk about was this wonderful granola that she had in Mexico … she brought back several jars of it and told us how she and her husband would munch on it like snack mix. It’s not sweet, she said, as […]


Triple Chocolate Pumpkin Pecan Granola

Chocolatey nutty goodness with an undertone of pumpkin spice that is just wonderful. Plus, (especially if you use dark chocolate), it’s good for you. What could be better than that? I know that there are those of you that will think “why on earth would I bother to make granola when I could just pick […]


Pumpkin Chai Apricot Granola … & Interval Training

Pumpkin Chai Granola with Apricots ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chai #granola #recipe

I’ve discovered a secret … okay, it’s not a great epiphany or anything, but I’ve found a way to motivate myself to exercise on the weekends when I’d much rather relax, cook a lot of wonderful tasting things, hang out with my foodie friends (in person and/or online) and drink tea and wine. See, here’s […]


Kumquat Cranberry Pecan Granola

Kumquat Cranberry Pecan Granola

A crunchy sweet granola with a bit of citrus zing from the kumquats and the tart-sweet chewy taste of craisins. Usually when I make granola, I use some sort of fruit puree in it (like applesauce and one time I used strawberry sauce). I have an abundance of kumquats this winter, though, and I couldn’t […]


Pumpkin Gingersnap Chocolate Chip Granola

Sweet crunchy homemade granola with intermingling tastes of pumpkin, gingersnap cookies, and chocolate, inspired by Simply Gourmet’s Gingerbread Granola. I’m travelling today with my daughter who is supposed to be at a dance workshop all day, but instead she is here in the hotel feeling yucky and dizzy, so I’m pondering what to do for her […]

  Eeek! I’m so excited! I did it … I finally got my own domain, my own home for my blog. I’ve been researching, thinking, dreaming of what I could do if I only had a REAL site of my own. Today I took the plunge and just did it. It really wasn’t as hard […]


Almond Berry Granola

Almond Berry Granola

I don’t know what it is with me and breakfasts lately … all my posts seem to be about breakfast. Oh well, breakfast is important. What you eat in the morning sets the tone for your day, so you should make it good. Granola is the perfect breakfast on mornings when you’re in a rush. […]


Tropical Trail Mix Granola

Tropical Trail Mix Granola

I am SOoooo into homemade granola! I love love love love LOVE it! Ideas for different granola flavors are bouncing around in my head like crazy. The idea for this tropical granola sprung from a peanut butter trail mix cookie I used to make with tropical trail mix (come to think of it, I need […]


Homemade Banana Nutella Granola

Homemade Chocolate Banana Nutella Granola

I am completely obsessed with homemade granola. It’s so marvelous to munch on … to have for breakfast in a bowl with milk. To make into a parfait. To sprinkle on ice cream. It’s nothing like that flat-tasting store-bought stuff that to me just tastes like sugar and cardboard. Homemade granola is like 10,000 levels […]


Lowfat Apple Berry Granola Crisp

Lowfat Apple Berry Granola Crisp

It was raining this morning and I’d been gone all weekend. I needed to bake something. I have these frozen apples in a bag my friend gave me for making apple pies, but I’m not so good at pies. Have I mentioned my fear of crusts? I am not good with pie crust … and […]


Chocolate Peanut Butter Granola

Chocolate Peanut Butter Granola

I’ve seen a bunch of chocolate granola in the foodie world lately and oh I ached to do one myself. Because I really really love eating chocolate for breakfast. Simply Gourmet Photography did a lovely dark chocolate peanut butter granola. A Little Bit Crunchy A Little Bit Rock and Roll made a dark chocolate one. Oh Nuts! […]


Pineapple Peach Yogurt Parfait

with honey and lime and homemade maple cranberry granola … The great thing about having granola in the house is you can make pretty parfaits with it. All you need is some fruit and some yogurt and a pretty glass to put it in. It can be for breakfast or dessert or even a mid-day […]


Homemade Maple Cranberry Pecan Granola

Homemade Maple Cranberry Pecan- Granola

I have long been fascinated with the idea of making my own granola. I don’t know why it took me so long to actually DO it. Suddenly several of my foodie friends are talking about it, so perhaps it was the power of suggestion? I don’t know. I just know that last week I suddenly […]
