I’m on my way to recovering and I attribute it to these 2 things.
Besides that I’ve been watching a whole lot of TV and doing basically nothing else. It’s been kind of a long 2 days so far, part of me is enjoying doing nothing and part of me really wants to get up and move. I really can’t do anything yet, so I have to embrace the relaxation.
I haven’t been cooking and we’ve been basically ordering in lots of soups and eating whatever is in the fridge. But I still have some recipes I haven’t shared with you from my holiday baking extravaganza.
Like this granola…which I’ve been eating every time I make it off the couch. It’s amazing and dare I say better than the pumpkin granola.
I based it off Jessica’s gingerbread granola, before I realized I had no ginger, but it’s still delish. It’s perfect in and/or on yogurt, fruit smoothies, ice cream or just by itself.
I had to change it around because I didn’t have a couple of the item, so here is my version of it. It’s gingerbread-ish because it still has that holiday spice to it, without having any ginger in it.
[print_this] Chocolate Gingerbread-ish Granola
adapted from Jessica at How Sweet Eats.com
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1/4 cup wheat bran
- 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- optional: 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/3 cup molasses
- 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375. Add all dry ingredients, except chocolate chips, to a big mixing bowl (oats, ground flax, wheat bran, salt and spices). Mix. Then all remaining ingredients (except chocolate chips) and stir well. If mixture seems too dry add 1 tbs of honey. Stir in chocolate chips. Lay mixture on a baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes, turning every 3-5 minutes until lightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool. [/print_this]
This is a perfect gift to give someone for the holidays! Give it a try, it’s super easy and tasty too.
I’m actually going to try to get out of the house today. I haven’t breathed fresh air since Thursday and I think it will be good for me.
