I’m In Trouble

Tonight Jay and I have a softball game so dinner is, once again, up in the air.

Plus, we’re also planning on leaving a little earlier than normal so I can squeeze in some batting practice before the game. I’m feelin’ a little rusty…

But none of that really matters right now. Not one bit of it.

Because today, I made this…


And I’m pretty sure it has already changed my life.


While I was away last week on vacation, I didn’t get a chance to do much blog reading. If I had a few minutes, I’d skim through my reader on my phone, and one of those days happened to be Julie’s recipe for Peanut Butter Granola. Just looking at the tiny pictures from my phone already had me salivating.


So then, when I saw her make her Almond Butter Granola, it was almost like she was saying, “C’mon Courtney, you need to make this, like, now.”

So I obliged, and followed her recipe to a T; only, instead of using peanut or almond butter, I tried it with THIS…


Sunflower Seed Butter.

Oh my gosh I can’t even begin to tell you just how incredible this stuff is.


The way it stays in little clumps that just burst with flavor in your mouth??


Oh goodness, I’m in trouble.

Maybe this would go good on top of my Wasa crackers?? Winking smile

So since this recipe takes about five seconds to make, I suggest you go check it out and give it a try. Just click here. And then immediately remove yourself from the kitchen so you don’t eat it all once it comes out of the oven. Winking smile

Question for the Evening:

What’s your favorite granola? Any favorite recipes?

    I saw her recipe there too and I can’t wait to try it! But I’m also a little afraid of the temptation it’ll create for me : )

    I am definitely making some and then sprinkle it over a scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt with a few banana slices and a drizzle of maple syrup…yum!

    there’s this granola mixed w/dried strawberries sold at this local healthfood store, in the bulk bins…but even sold in bulk is so expensive!

    i usually have been eating nature’s path. good. but it ain’t that strawberry granola…

    I saw her recipe too and definitely bookmarked that one! I bought sunflower seed butter last time I was at TJ’s since everyone raves about it but I gotta say, I’m not a fan! I didn’t think it was possible to not like a type of “butter”! I’ll definitely try it with almond or peanut butter though :)

    Oh my – that looks good. I could not handle having it in my kitchen – that is for sure. Favorite granola is Suzie’s Granola. Suzie is my best friend from Omaha’s mother. She makes the best homemade granola ever. I have no idea what the recipe is, but every time I visit, I try to find out. It’s sweet, crunchy, light and filling all at once. I’ll be home in about a month and you can bet I’ll be eating some of Suzie’s Granola!!!

      I really like it, but I actually still prefer peanut butter on a sandwich. It’s delicious though!

      I’m pretty sure it was a plugin – Greg’s Threaded Comment Numbering or something like that?
