Here's what my Valentine concocted for me this year, it was quite tasty and pretty cute, way to go Honey! Thanks for sharing YOUR recipe with ME!!!! (he found it himself, I was quite impressed!)
1 cup old fashion oats
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup sliced or slivered almonds
3 TBSP oil or butter (if butter, melt it first)
2 TBSP honey
8-10 strawberries, diced
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup pineapple, diced
or substitute any of the above with raspberries, blackberries, bananas, or more!!!
2 cups plain yogurt
Preheat your oven to 350, mix all your granola ingredients together and spread them out on a cookie sheet baking for 18- 20 minutes until golden brown. Remove immediately from the cookie sheet (so it doesn't keep cooking) and put it in a bowl. Mix your fruit up and scoop it into the bottom of a glass parfait dish or tall glass, then continue to layer it with yogurt and the granola as much as you would like. This recipe will make approximately 4 servings.
And if you need some cheering up in the kitchen or a little giggle.... this story should do the trick!
My sweet husband wanted to surprise me and make me this for breakfast, but ran into a little snag if you will, when he realized he shouldn't have pre-cooked the oatmeal for the granola!!! In his defense he did show me the recipe which DID say "1 cup oatmeal" instead of a more accurately "1 cup oats"... so he had to dump the first batch and start over for round #2... what a trooper! (And yes, he gave me permission to share the story and the picture!! )
