4 Weeks to Fill Your Freezer, Day 3

You can see my original plan here.  I almost forget to tell you about this very cool machine that my friend had.  You see I had lots of oat groats

 And I didn't want to have to go buy a ton of oatmeal  so I was talking with my friend who has the coolest kitchen tools (Hi, Nicole - she doesn't read my blog but I am still saying hi to her).  She told me she had a flaker.  It is part of the Bosch family and you can buy it along with the Bosch mixer.  And it is so cool to watch!  So I took a bunch of my oat groats over to her house and we flaked some groats.  Yes, we need serious help.

That is how I got my oatmeal flakes to use for my granola.  Aren't you glad I told you that story?

Then my daughter and I whipped up two giant batches of granola - Almond Coconut Granola and Peanut butter granola.  She loves to help me in the kitchen and she is getting better all the time.

I bought these gigantic bowls at a garage sale last year and I am so glad I did.  They come in handy every once in a while like today.  The granola is still baking as we speak.   I took some of it out to sample and it tastes pretty good.  I am not sure exactly how much I will get but it will be about 40 cups worth!

Tomorrow - waffles!



  1. Wow Gretchen! You are doing a great job. I need to make some granola too.
