For recipes, I tried two from My Whole Food Life. The Maple Almond Vanilla and the Nutella.
I won’t repeat the recipe here, but I’ll give you a few tips and pictures:
I had to search three different Whole Food stores for almond meal. You can apparently make your own too!
|I took the picture of the jar after I ate some. It really did make more than this!|
Nine times out of ten if you make something at home it is cheaper than store-bought. In this case, it is pretty much a wash. The most expensive items were the nuts. And surprisingly, I didn’t find the rolled oats to be overly cheap either. I’ll have to cost compare to see if I can get a better deal somewhere else in the city. Or maybe buy a TON in bulk. I might be making a lot of granola now that I love these recipes, so maybe it is worth buying large quantities. Oh, and the really great thing is it only takes about a 45 minutes to make and then your house smells amazing for the rest of the day!
PS - Did you notice the awesome new mason jars?! Here are a few more. I bought a bunch at TJ Maxx using a gift card I got for my birthday. Happy birthday to me!
