seeds, nuts and grains





It's pouring rain here, a good morning for cooking. I like keeping snacks around the house that have seeds, nuts and whole grains. They fill me up, have lots of protein, and I try to sneak them into my children's diet as well. Sometimes successfully, sometimes not.

So this morning, I made granola. I love this recipe and make it all the time. It's not too sweet , just nutty, wholesome and delicious as cereal or on top of plain yogurt.

Then toasted tamari sunflower seeds. I got this recipe from my mom who puts them in salads. Really easy, really good.

Then maple glazed walnuts. I got this recipe from 3191. Again, easy and good. Dangerously good. I have to limit myself to just a few at a time now, because the first time I made them, I ate almost the whole batch myself.

Today I'm listening to Contra and Graceland. Cheery, melodic music.

Nice! I love granola so much. A few months ago I found a peanut butter granola at the store and cannot get enough of it. It is super spendy though. I wonder if I could find a recipe for peanut butter granola.....

OMG those maple syrup walnuts are good! I just made them. I saw that 3191 recipe a couple weeks ago, bought the ingredients but didn't get any further - thanks for the push!

Yum! I'm inspired, which is big, because I'm not very receptive to inspiration today : )
