My latest obsession has to be granola. It’s sweet, crunchy and perfect for snacking or topping maple syrup drizzled yogurt. I’m actually mad at myself for not making it more often. What is wrong with me?

I played with fall spices and ingredients and came out with the perfect match of flavors. I also added in my new favorite ingredient, cocoa nibs.  Man I love those things. Seriously. If my last cocoa nib post did not make you run out and buy some then this post will!

The granola is made with coconut oil because I love the stuff and it’s really good for you! I talked about coconut oil in a post I did about a year ago. This stuff is the bomb y’all! You have to give it a try. Not only does it smell amazing but it gives almost anything a slight nutty coconut flavor. Yes please!

Ick, you are so right - mealy apples are the worst! But I love good apples, and along with brussels sprouts and bacon, this sounds like the most delicious salad.

Love this! I too have been over-the-top obsessed with coconut oil lately. We've been digging it as the oil we use to pop stovetop popcorn. Bookmarking this one for the next time I make a big fat batch of granola.

I, too, am obsessed with granola, and I've been trying to find a good chocolate one to try at home. You know- as a way to have chocolate for breakfast while still being 'healthy.' :) This might do it! I have yet to try coconut oil but this might tip me over the edge. THANKS!
