After FOUR weeks of not being able to post, I am back!
Norway's constitution Day has come and gone (17th of May) and I celebrated it after seven years in Scotland now having marked the day. The flatwarming has been had and I am super stoked to be back and blogging again, withdrawal symptoms? You betcha! I shall enroll a few of the happenings that have come and gone, along with the back log of delicious recipes I have sitting waiting here patiently on my desktop.
Since it’s a new, fresh start, I figured I would post a breakfast recipe – perfect to kick off any morning!
Granola has become one of my favourite things to make! It tastes a lot better than store bought granola, and it is easy as chips to make!
I love that you can add whatever you feel like of seeds, nuts and dried fruit as well as spices for extra fragrance. Here though, I decided to keep it simple, and it was lovely! Would perhaps add some whole nuts to the mix next time, I can imagine some dark cocoa would be a lovely addition too, but I haven't tried yet!
Peanut Butter Granola
(Makes 2 small jars)
4 tbsp peanut butter
4 tbsp honey (use syrup for vegan version)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups of oats
- Start by pre-heating the oven to 180C.
- Now, in a pot, melt the peanut butter and honey over medium heat (this can also be done in a bowl in the microwaves for about 20-30 seconds.
- Fold in the oats, cinnamon and vanilla extract and make sure it is all covered. Take a baking tray and spread the mixture out, press down into a layer so that you will get some clusters. Bake for about 15-20 minutes until golden. Then, open the oven door slightly and let it cook for a further 5-10 minutes to let steam out.
- Take out, and leave to cool entirely before breaking it up carefully. Store in an airtight container. Serve with milk, or over yogurt with a drizzle of syrup or honey!
So, I thought I would share some of the pictures from the move with you! Below, you see the "Before and After" photos of my room in the new flat - quite the difference, huh?
And here is the first "proper" meal that I had in the flat as I was unpacking. In all fairness though, with a bit of turkey, this salad by Sainsbury's was pretty tasty - I love the addition of the crunchy crumbles, and sultanas!
