Sometimes, the universe is just upside down.
How am I supposed to write a post about something that I can not wrap my head around?
It's like trying to imagine an alternate reality or a fifth dimension.
There are many things that I would associate with the baking stylings of Dorie Greenspan.
Granola is not one that immediately comes to mind.
Butter and heavy cream? Absolutely.
Pumpkin seeds and brown rice syrup, not so much.
Sometimes, the unexpected path is one worth taking.
Toasted granola and almonds. Pepitas, sunflower seeds, toasted coconut flakes (none of that freaky shredded stuff for me). Dried fruit (apricots & cranberries). Brown rice syrup was the binding agent of choice. Some time in the oven to turn everything golden brown. It was just that easy.
It was a nice reminder that delicious doesn't have to be complicated.
Now, if everything in life could be that simple...
