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!
