How much granola can one woman eat?
A whole heck of a lot.
Add some almond milk and BAM: vegan treats. 
Especially when she eats it every morning at work, at her desk, while she watches enviously those who stroll in with their doughnuts.

This tray makes me think of breakfast in bed. How come nobody brings me breakfast in bed? Cruel. 
I also count on granola as my 4:00 pm pick me up. 

Granola: Makes 7-9 servings
  1. 5 1/2 cups rolled oats
  2. 2 tsp cinnamon
  3. 2 tsp ground ginger
  4. 1 1/2 tsp ground cardamom 
  5. 1 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  6. 1 tsp nutmeg
  7. 3/4 cup light brown sugar 
  8. 1/2 cup applesauce
  9. 1 cup maple syrup
  10. 1/4 cup honey
  11. 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
  12. 3/4 cup crasins 
  13. 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  14. 1 cup shredded coconut (optional-but I LOVE it) 
  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. 
  2. Mix together all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Whisk together all wet ingredients then add to dry mixture using a rubber spatula. 
  4. Put parchment paper down on two cookie sheets with sides or a 9X13 pyrex pan. 
  5. Spread the granola out in a thick layer. 
  6. Bake for 30 minutes then mix it around. Bake it for an additional 20 minutes. Allow to cool with a towel or paper towels over it. It will not be hard until it cools. 
  7. Break it up and store in a glass container (I use large mason jars).
