We’re on our second snow day here at the House. While we probably won’t have a white Christmas, we are enjoying this brief glimpse at a Currier and Ives holiday.

When I pulled myself away from a Rosemunde Pilcher novel I’ve read about 3 times before, I went to the kitchen to stir up this granola.
It’s crunchy and nutty and not too sweet.
Add other stuff you like—dried fruit, for example—or take stuff away; flexibility is this mixture’s middle name.
Except it doesn’t have a last name. Whatever,
4 c. old-fashioned oats
1 c. coconut
3 c. mixture walnuts, almonds, pecans, pumpkin seeds, dried fruit, and/or sunflower seeds
1/2 tsp each cinnamon and salt
1/2 cup oil
1/3 cup honey
1/2 tsp vanilla
Mix together dry ingredients in a large baking pan. <Mix the wet ingredients, and pour over dry. Stir to mix. Bake at 325* for 30 minutes, stirring every ten minutes or so. Cool, stirring frequently.
My novel is calling. This blog post took sooo much effort, you know.
