Gluten Free Peach and Blueberry Granola; vanilla and honey sweetened crispy buckwheat, chewy peach cheeks, pops of blueberries, toasted coconut and crunchy toasted nuts. A delicious snack and a fabulous breakfast!
So, I have just come to the realisation that the photos may not make it into this post… I say this because, I have almost eaten the entire batch of this granola while Pinteresting (you can find me here → Kirst @ Treat Yourself Sweeter) Eating while pinning is dangerous… like shopping when you are hungry (which I also did today… I filled the car.. for 2 people and a cat!)
This recipe is full of all good stuff… but I am sure eating an entire batch kinda outweighs that. Actually, not true… it can’t be the entire batch, I gave a cup to my Dad to try. lol. ONE cup… stingy but true. In my defence, that is how much the jar held… a little selfish strategy might have been involved there too 😉
So, I am being so unimaginative with my photography… remember this bowl from last week? (Apple & Coconut Bircher Muesli here!) There might be a legit reason why I am currently VERY attached to this bowl…
I got this in Bali last year… last minute run to the market… the ‘we can’t fit anymore into the bag Kirsten’ type of market run (you can ALWAYS find room…!) the clincher…
I am MEANT to be in Bali… right. now. Ergh. I apologise if I have whinged to you about this before.. I have whinged so much, I forget who to. Hehe.
Let’s call it a lack of communication as to why I am here… still.
Anyway…who would swap a day of having toes stomped on, bleeding knees, SHUT YOUR FACE yelled at you, tears… blah blah blah for…
Sun, cocktails and a view of a rumbling volcano and lush, green jungle. Did I mention the beach.. pool… amazing food… ah, and the shopping?!? Beautiful people… lazy breakfasts (you know how I feel about lazy breakfasts!). Ekkk… lucky those kids are cute…
So, to take me to a happy place… I am munching and pinteresting…. join me! (but quickly taking some photos first!)
