Maybe I'll write something later. In the meantime, you should make this granola.
Whatever you do, do not forget pistacios.
Granola: from Sprouted Kitchen 2 tablespoons butter 1/4 cup brown sugar 2 tablespoons honey 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce 1 tablespoon vanilla 3 cups oats 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds 1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds (couldn't find these at the grocer, totally fine without) 3/4 cup pistacios (the best part, don't forget these) 1 cup raw slivered almonds 2 tablespoons cinnamon 1 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 cup raisins Preheat oven to 325. In a skillet, melt the butter, brown sugar, applesauce, honey and vanilla on medium-low heat until it's of a smooth consistency. Turn off heat.
Meanwhile in a large mixing bowl, combine oats, all the nuts, cinnamon and salt. Add the butter mixture to the oat/nut mixture, stirring to coat. Spread the granola out on a baking sheet or pan of just about any size. Bake in oven for 15 minutes. Remove and stir. Place back in the oven for another 15 minutes. Remove and stir again. Bake for a final 15 minutes. Mix raisins in with granola while warm.

I always wondered how granola was made. I'll have to give it a try!
