Started making this simple recipe for granola a while ago. It is perfect for our camping trips. Easy to store. Easy solution for a quick breakfast. Easy to carry while hiking. Just plain easy. 🙂
You can add anything extra to this recipe before baking. I added about 1/2 to 3/4 cup raisins. Nuts, craisins (all natural kind), shredded coconut is good too.
- 1/2 cup cocount oil (all natural, unrefined)
- 1/2 cup honey (local if you can get it)
- 1 tsp salt
- 4 cups rolled oats
Melt together the coconut and honey. Add salt and stir. Pour over oats and stir well to coat. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes until slightly golden. Stir twice during baking.
You may have to adjust the time for baking. We found it takes us up to 25 minutes to bake, but the original recipe says to bake 10 minutes.
Yummy with milk, yogurt, or right out of the hand.
3 out of 6 family members will eat this, which means 3 out of 6 family members will go hungry if this is all we have, which means 2 out of 2 parents don’t care.
I will take a small jar with me when I am out doing errands to munch on between meals. It fills me up and I won’t make that quick trip through a fast food joint.
This is good stuff people!
This was actually made Friday and Saturday this past week, but it would work for a Tuesday Meal.
Amish Muffin Tin Meatloaves (I double the recipe.)
Source: In the Kitchen with Jessica Go buy it. It’s for a good cause.
- 1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
- 1 c. soft bread crumbs
- 1 (8oz) can tomato sauce
- 2 eggs, slightly beaten
- 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup finely chopped onion (I use onion powder because all of my children have a gag reflex when it comes to micro amounts of onion chunk in their food)
- dash of dried thyme
- 1/4 cup ketchup (we use only Publix organic ketchup due to food allergies. It is SO GOOD)
Combine ground beef, bread crumbs, tomato sauce,eggs, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, onion, and thyme. Mix well. Place about 1/3 cup of mixgture in a lined muffin tin. Top each with loaf with ketchup and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
I use a large cookie scoop to make the meatloaves and I do not use lined muffins. After filling the muffins I make a dent in each with the back of the scooper, which makes a nice place for the ketchup. 🙂
With the left over meat, I make a batch of meatballs. These are saved for the next day, (A Tuesday Meal).
Come back tomorrow for A Tuesday Meal and find out what I did with the meatballs.
