Due to a series of fortunate events, I haven’t been getting my sleep the last few days 🙂
Thank goodness for the package that arrived yesterday! Look what came in the mail!
Kara @ Food Baby sent me this! That Starbucks gift card is DEFINITELY going to help keep me going today! (Not sure why the picture is sort of fuzzy. Sorry.)
Dinner last night was a classic vegan favorite:
I’m pretty sure I could eat this vegan mac ‘n cheese every single day.
I attempted making my own granola last night. I wanted to try adding cereal to the classic oats + nuts mix. Here’s what I used:
Cereal Loaded Granola
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 1/2 cups puffed rice (I like the Kashi kind)
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup agave or maple syrup
- 1/4 cup chopped almonds (I took whole almonds and smashed them with my measuring cup, because I’m
lazyclassy like that)
- 1/4 cup fiber one
Note to self… don’t add the chocolate until AFTER you bake it. (As soon as I tossed them in, I realized it.)
How did it turn out?
After baking it at 350 for about 20 minutes, it turned out crispy, crunchy, and not too sweet. The chocolate burned a little (as I expected) so next time I’ll be smart and add it in AFTER I bake everything else. I like adding in the cereal, because it gives it a lot of volume. Yum! This shall be making an appearance on a breakfast in the near future…
Now, for a favor. I need some suggestions for vegetarian recipes that are… “meat-eater friendly”… something that wouldn’t get a “where’s the meat?” question… feel free to include a link in your comment!
