    I want a friend like this! Please please please!

    This looks seriously fabulous. That, a bowl of yogurt and some quiet time in a nook with a book and I’d be the HAPPIEST of campers.

    This looks fabulous. I’ve totally ODed on granola the past few days. So, so ridiculously good.
    (also? your pictures make me happy because I always eat my granola/muesli/cereal/whatever out of a mug/teacup :D)

    My first best friend I met as a toddler (and he liked me despite the Down Sydrome! :p). His name was Jonathan and he lived down the street from me. He was Chinese and I was fascinated by his tanned skin and dark glossy hair. I couldn’t properly say his name, and called him ‘Doddoo with the bootiful golden brown skin.’

    I have such a wonderfully clear memory of my 5th birthday party – two guests! Doddoo and my other best friend, Loredana (who I just discovered is now a model!). This was when I lived in Melbourne and mum and dad took us out to the city at night (EEE EXCITING!!). We went to McDonalds (EEEEE EVEN MORE EXCITING!!) for Happy Meals and walked around the city and went to a park to feed possums. And there were fairy lights in the trees and me and Loredana were wearing our best party dresses and it all seemed to incredibly grown up and magical 😀

    … no granola, though 🙁

    Oh, thanks for sharing! The granola looks divine. I love maple. And cranberries. And almonds….you get the idea. 😉 Will take the recipe with me when I go to LA to visit granola-loving-grad-school friend for Thanksgiving. 😀

    Hannah I LOVE this!! Yum! Such sweet, clever words. I totally want to make this granola my new bff.

    I don’t need a new friend. I have you.

    Okay, that was WAY too corny, and I can’t leave it at that! So, here’s a joke for you: What do you call a cow that just gave birth to a calf?

    “Decafinated.” Ahahaha.

    My best friend in middle school used to write me 30-page letters, just for fun. We had a great system for telling each other who we had a crush on without anyone else knowing. And we followed the Top 40 with an almost religious fervor. We did not eat granola for breakfast, but she made mean popovers.

    oh if I had that granola, it would never leave my side 🙂

    You are such a good writer! i loved the heat rock mini story!

    “Gentle Fibre Mix” makes me wonder about the other mix options there may be… is there a Ravaging Fibre Mix? A This-Hurts-Me-More-Than-It-Hurts-You Fibre Mix?

    I’d like to take this granola out to the movies and a slice of cake afterwards and tell it all my secrets.

  11. Iron Chef Shellie

    Man you are really making me want to get my granola on lately!! Must make time… maybe that can be a great xmas gift! 😉

    My best childhood memory… i dunno, but I have a fond one of me and one of my oldest friend sitting at my dining table, eating packet chips, and laughing so hard over something we forgot how to breathe! We were only wee tackers then, but it’s a good memory that always brings a smile to my face!

    I think the heart in a box was a sweet gesture for your first date! Just shows that sometimes best friends are more constant than that tall dark handsome stranger – and I suspect I could eat this muesli more regularly than the previous muesli – I love prunes and craisins and I really need to use up some psyllium husk

  13. Sarah@Gluten-free tries Vegan

    Wow, this sounds delicious and I can’t wait to try it out. I’m bookmarking it now.

    Thanks so much for your kind comments. It’s been a funny few months but things are on the up 🙂

    Hope you’re well xoxoxox

    Awwwhhh, even though I don’t like Granola too much….. I so want a friend like that 🙂 Nice pics though.

    1. Hannah

      A real friend as opposed to a granola friend is probably best in the long run anyway 😉

  15. Jess

    Are you putting together some sort of granola-based social world? I mean, I’ll totally support you in your endeavour, but I just think it might be difficult when you get to, say, aunt you never see but who always posts TMI Facebook status updates granola, or friend-of-a-friend who always stops to talk to you and as they talk they use your name a lot but you can’t reciprocate because you’ve completely forgotten their name and now it’s too awkward to ask granola.

    1. Hannah

      Don’t tempt me, Jess. The older relative posting TMI Facebook granola would have to include poppyseeds that get stuck in one’s teeth, lavender for that musky smell, and cough syrup. And I really don’t think that would end up tasting nice.

    My first attempt at homemade granola was with grape molasses and I found it seriously addictive!! This one is no exception I can see!
    My childhood best friend, too long ago to care or remember! (sorry, I can tell you about other friends!) 🙂

  17. Cherrie

    I love a great granola recipe. And this is a good’ un

  18. Alisa Cooks

    Hannah that is the sweetest post! I love cute little stories like that … with a recipe ending 🙂

    “Gentle fibre mix”? ::snicker::
    Actually though, I adore prunes. I like to say they’re “fruit snacks for grown ups.” And since my body tolerates up to 80g of fiber a day (sometimes more!) without so much as a blink, they’ve never had “that effect” on me.

    I have such a photographic memory that I could pretty much narrate most of my childhood to you…which would take days. I’ll spare you. 🙂

    This sounds delicious Hannah. I’m working on another muesli too. The first batch was ok, but needs some tweaking. Am going to try and get to it this weekend again, to try and perfect it.

  21. TeresaK @ teresatastes

    Made this during a visit with my own best friend in LA. We loved it…and it brought rave reviews from her granola-expert boyfriend. Thanks!!!
