Granola, courtesy of Edible Education

A bowl of granola, yogurt & berries served in a ceramic bowl and eaten with a metal spoon.

Such basic creature comforts become an absolute treat while on the road; especially when you’re used to a breakfast of instant oats consumed from a tiny cooking pot with a plastic spoon. I present, courtesy of my lovely host Ann from Edible Education, an extra tasty granola recipe. Nourish your body and your soul!

Edible Education Granola

5 c. oatmeal

1 c. coconut flakes

1/2 c. sliced almonds

1/2 c. chopped pecans or walnuts

1/4 c. agave nectar or honey

1/3 c. pumpkin seeds

1/2 c. maple syrup – real

1/4 c. ground flax seed

1/2 c. warm water

1/4 c. butter, room temperature

1/2 c. dried cranberries

1/2 c. raisins

Combine all ingredients except the raisins and cranberries. Spread out on foil-covered sheet and bake at 300 degrees for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cook until slightly browned. Add raisins and cranberries afterward and store in a sealed container.

    I’ll be making this this weekend. Your mentioning of your typical breakfast got me wondering more about your life on the road. In between stops and schools you’ve put thousands of miles behind you; what are those days like that are just you and the road?

    What are you eating? Are you camping, sleeping on couches, not sleeping at all? How is your gear, body, and enthusiasm holding up? I would be interesting to get a little “behind the scenes” look at the SFT.

    But anyway, it looks like things are going swimmingly. Keep up the fine work.
