Deven’s Allergy-free Granola

Dear Deven,

Today is Granola Monday and I am still away in Germany visiting with Miss Maggie. You will have to make the Granola today, OK? I placed the ingredients on the grocery list before I left so that Daddy could get them for you. First you will have to heat the oven to 300 degrees and get out Mama’s biggest cookie pan. In the drawer with the sharpies and waxed paper is a piece of brown parchment paper that I already cut for you to fit the big pan. Now in a big mixing bowl mix…

Deven’s Superhero Kryptonite-free Granola
3 cups organic old fashioned oats, in the pantry on the right
2 tsp. cinnamon, in Mama’s spice cabinet top shelf, in the front, in the Penzeys bag
1 Tbs. of vanilla, in the cabinet above the toaster oven, by the sprinkles
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 cup grape seed oil, on the counter near the olive oil, if not there, then in the cabinet above the toaster oven on the right
1/3 cup real Organic maple syrup, in the cabinet above the toaster oven on the right
A tiny sprinkle of Mama’s Secret Ingredient, it is in that teeny tiny white canister with the tiny wooden spoon attached to it, on the left of the stove- only a wee dash, that’s all it takes. It’s an ingredient I put in everything I cook for you.

Mix is all up real good and spread it out over the parchment paper. When the oven light goes out, the oven is ready. Put the granola in and set the timer for 10 minutes. Then stir it around, spread it all out again and put it back in the oven for 5 minutes. Stir again, and put in back in the oven for 3 minutes. Now it’s done. Let it cool all the way, and put it in a Mason Jar. Don’t forget to add your special mini chocolate chips to yours, and tell your brother and sister to add nuts to theirs, OK?

PS- Share!
PPS- I love you Zuzu, see you soon!

      A teeny tiny jar of Mama’s Love found on the upper shelf in the bakery isle of your grocer, between patience and kindness. Use liberally on all sweet and savory dishes especially when the days are gloomy, tears are spilling, tummies are grumbly, and knees are marked with boo-boos. May the jar always remain full:-)
