Garmins and Granola

I got a new toy this weekend.

Garmin Forerunner 10

I took it for a run this morning, and I have to say I’m probably already addicted to this tiny, pink computer on my wrist that tells me how embarrassingly slow I’m running. It was super easy to learn how to use and the GPS found a satellite pretty quickly. Kuddos to the guys at Run Colorado¬†for helping me select the right watch for my needs AND putting up with me asking to try on every color. I highly recommend supporting your local running store for all your running gear needs – they know their stuff.

I also made some granola:

Honey Almond Granola

This is an easy-peasy granola and tastes WAY better than store bought!

I have a gluten sensitivity, so I use GF oats and Bob’s gluten-free all purpose flour as replacements.

Here’s the recipe (I usually double it because I can eat A LOT of granola) :

  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 Tbsp canola or coconut oil (both work well, but I prefer coconut)
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • cinnamon & nutmeg (about 3 shakes of each)
  • 1 tsp flour
  • slivered almonds & raisins (as much as you want!)

Preheat oven to 300. Mix wet ingredients and sugar together, microwave for a few seconds to turn it into a complete liquid, and then add oats. Mix until oats are all glossy.

Spread onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Stir oats every 5 mins until golden. I suggest after 10 mins lowering the temp to 250 to avoid burning.

and voila! delicious granola. You’re welcome.
