lazy man's granola

Or woman's.  It doesn't matter really.  What does matter, is that it's really, spectacularly tasty, and ridiculously easy to toss together.  It's even pretty.

Beyond all of that, there's chocolate.  Yes, for breakfast.  Could be worse.

lazy granola
I've been busy, so a lot of things have seemed to be on hold.  Let's see, I got the car stuck in the snow, on the warmest day in weeks.  Sadly, I was just inches off the driveway.  Then, there was the maple syrup spill all over the floor of the pantry.  Makes me think twice about having a furry pet that likes sweets.  Then, the vacuum thought it might just light on fire.  What can I say, I lead an exciting life.

The granola is customizable of course, and doubles well as a trail mix type of snack.  Just depends on your mood.  Or how much chocolate.

I like it most like this:
-2 cups of slow oats
-1 cup whole walnuts
-1/2 cup sliced almonds
-1/2 cup dried cranberries
-1/2 cup raisins
-1/3 cup dark chocolate chunks
-handful of banana chips, give or take

Just toss it together in a container.  It's fantastic with a Greek-style yogurt and honey or maple syrup, and at least a teaspoon of cinnamon.  Berries or a banana are a bonus.
