Dreaming of Pie...

I LOVE RHUBARB!
It's up, and I'm dreaming of pie..
I LOVE PIE!
But I have to wait. It's not ready.
I'm waiting.
While I wait, I'll make granola.

I LOVE GRANOLA!
On top of plain yogurt with honey drizzled on.
I LOVE MY GRANOLA!
ENJOY!
4 cups oats
1 cup almonds - slivered or sliced
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup chopped pecans - buy whole pecans and do a rough chop - it's better!
1/3 cup canola oil
1/2 cup honey.
Mix all ingredients together really well in a large bowl. Spread out on two cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake for 14 minutes at 300. Remove from oven and let cool completely on the parchment paper.
Picking away at the edges is highly recommended while waiting.
Once cool, pick up the parchment edges, and let granola run into your container for storage. It crumbles and stays lumpy in spots. It's a lovely thing.
You can also add 1/4 cup of flax seed - I was out.

I love French Vanilla Yogurt with a sprinkle of granola on it as well. Add a couple of raspberries or blueberries.... mmmmm.... heavenly!

Yum, just made a batch yesterday. I add dried fruit when it's out of the oven, cranberries and raisins.

But, Oh Canada, how can you see your rhubarb already, I live in Virginia, subtropical climate, and I can't even see my snowdrops for all the snow.

I adore rhubard too, but have a while to wait before I can get some!
I make granola a lot for my daughter. It is not one of my favorites, but I seem to make it frequently. Am copying your recipe to see how they compare. It always looks so tempting.

I remember as a child I would take the sugar bowl and sit by a big patch of rhubarb in our back yard and dip into the sugar and yummmmmmm.

I've been dreaming of pie ever since I saw Maiden Luxe's latest post this morning.

I adore rhubarb and your granola looks superb! Once you harvest your rhubarb you'll be able to make some rhubarb compote and add it to your bowls of yogurt and granola. That would be tasty, at least I think so...

that rhubarb is gorgeous heather! i've been eating alot of swiss chard lately and that reminds me of it. (although pie sounds better....)

Sarah Elizabeth said...

I adore rhubarb too. My mum makes a really tasty rhubarb crumble - my mouth is watering just thinking about it!

Beautiful photos. Isn't it wonderful to be able to make things from scratch...like granola. Sometimes, we don't take the time to realize that most of the things we purchase in a box, can be home made. Thanks for reminding us.

Cathi said...

The granola looks wonderful.....I am going to make this with my daughter...Rhubarb pie is my mom's fave! Have a nice evening! :)

Meredith said...

Yum. I love rhubarb, too! It's a shame it's only available for such a short time every year, but perhaps that makes us love it even more.

You have a beautiful blog. I love rhubarb pie. My grandmother used to make it when I was a little girl. She lived in upstate New York and had a pie safe in her kitchen. Everytime I went to visit her and opened that pie safe, there was a rhubarb pie waiting in there for me. Your post made me think of my grama:)

I love rhubarb, too, and can find no one to share it with. My grandmother made "stewed rhubarb" to be piled on thick slices of toast. My mouth still waters when I think about it, but like so many childhood memories, I've never been able to duplicate it.
