Gifts from your Kitchen

Gifts From Your Kitchen Recipes are Easy to Make

There is Cyber Monday and Shop small Saturday. How about Kitchen Sunday? Let's make it a thing. We can gather our cooking and creative peeps. We need thank yous for the mailman, the hairdresser and the UPS guy. We'll make gifts to remember the neighbors, the Pastor, and the teachers. 

Are you thinking it is too early? I have already made batches of homemade liquers (kahlua and creme de menthe) as they must cure for a month before gifting. I leave the cookies and scones until the last minute so they will be fresh and so that I have less time to eat them all. There are plenty of recipes that have a good shelf life that we can get started on now.

One of my favorite items to gift is Sesame Oat Crunch Granola. I had been making this for years to eat with my yogurt. I was asked to contribute something to a womens' group brunch. The quantity that I thought would last for weeks was gone on our first meeting. Three people asked for the recipe. I am sharing it with you and hope you enjoy it as much. It is super easy to substitute or add ingredients as long as they are like items. Go ahead and substitute the vanilla extract for almond extract or add dried fruit after the baking process.

 SESAME OAT CRUNCH GRANOLA

INGREDIENTS:

2 1/2 cups rolled ats

1/4 cup sesame seeds

1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour- this will soften the texture. Pastry flour is best but plain whole wheat is ok too.

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon sea salt OR 1/8 teaspoon salt

1 reaspooon vanilla

1/4-1/2 cup of real maple syrup 

1/4 cup safflower oil

3-4 tablespoons apple juice

vegetable oil 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Mix all of the ingredients except the vegetable oil. Lightly grease a jelly roll pan with the vegetable oil. Spread the mixture onto the pan. Bake for 15 minutes. Break up large pieces and mix up a bit. Bake for another 15 minutes. Allow to cool completely before storing in mason jars or other decorative container. Enjoy.
