What I am Eating: Nut Granola

One thing that's interesting is a lot of times when a baby is allergic to a bunch of nuts, there are some they aren't allergic to as well. For James this is walnuts, pecans, and macadamia nuts (all the fattiest ones, what do you know? He likes Mommy squishy).

So I bought a pound each of walnuts and pecans.

First I preheated the oven at 400 degrees.

Then I put the nuts in a bowl and poured homemade maple syrup (maybe 1/4 cup?) over them, 2-3 tbs of melted Soy-Free Earth Balance and added cinnamon, nutmeg, maybe 1/4 cup oats, and maybe 1/8 cup of chia seeds, and salt to taste.

I mixed it all together, and then laid it out on 2 baking sheets covered with parchment paper.

Bake at 400 degrees for 7/10 mins, take out, let cool, and then store in freezer between snacks!


It's REALLY good and it packs a punch--protein--both from the nuts and chia seeds, sweet, rich, salty, it has everything. So this has been a great comforting snack recently.
