Woodstock Granola

August 30, 2009

I've been meaning to pay homage to the famous 60's era concert and thought,"Hmm, what would be the quintessential hippie Woodstock food?" Pot brownies, for sure. But alas, not the most legal thing. And I'm not sure I'd even know how to make them were I to somehow acquire the necessary bud. Then I thought, "Granola!" Everyone ate granola then (and still). Maybe not the most Woodstock-esque food, but certainly a buzz food of the times. My mom made it all the time, and we ate it dry and with milk. We even genericized her healthy food as "granola food." When I went searching online for some great recipes, I found the following on Amateur Gourmet. And he read about it on David Lebovitz's blog, who got it from the book "Baked: New Frontiers in Baking" by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito. David said it's one of those books that made him want to make everything in it, so I promptly bought it. (No, I have not been eating pot brownies). So here it is (and here's to Woodstock!), a superb recipe for easy homemade granola. Easy Homemade Granola on Foodista Photo: cuttlefish
