This is the final recipe for granola that I planned on making. I would have made it sooner, but I had problems finding the Dark Chocolate Covered Raisinets. I decided to stock up on all the ingredients for all the granola recipies, since I couldn’t find the raisinets for so long. Of course, I couldn’t find the stupid cherries this time *SIGH*
I really struggled to get it all mixed up again. I need a special granola mixing class or something. I still got it mixed and spread out to bake. You can see that I still missed a few places. I really didn’t notice when I was eating it.
This is where it gets weird. I tried the granola on the night I made it and it actually tasted sour. I could figure out what happened. The only thing I could think of was that I forgot the salt. Is salt the opposite of sour? Regardless, I let it cool completely and put it in a container. It still tasted ok, just a bad after taste. I figured that I would be able to mix it with some granola and call it good.
Fast forward a couple days. I opened the container and grabbed a piece. I kept munching at it, expecting that sour to hit me, but it never did!! Maybe it needed a rest time? No matter, it was really good. The granola itself (without the chocolate parts) reminds me of the nature valley chocolate granola bars. I loved it. I have no idea what happened between the baking and the snacking. I don’t know if I want to know. I do know that I need more containers to hold all the granola I plan on making – lol
