This cute squirrel is coming to our balcony everyday. We have much squirrels in our county, because we have many parks around. The squirrels come for nuts and other yummies. It's so cute, isn't it? :)

Homemade granola is so easy to make yourself, and it tastes so much better than store bought. I prefer making my own granola so that I can control exactly how it tastes. I love lots of nuts and seeds, and I use honey instead of sugar.
1 cup rolled oats (not steel cut or quick cooking)
2 cups raw nuts, chopped (eg. almonds, pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts, peanuts)
1 cup raw seeds (sunflower and pumpkin seeds are great)
1 tbsp your favorite spice (eg. cinnamon, pumpkin spice, gingerbread mix)
1 pinch salt
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup melted butter or coconut oil
Preheat the oven 140C/280F. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Spread on baking tray and bake until golden, approximately 30-40 minutes, stir every 10 minutes. Cool completely. Store in an airtight container or a jar for up to 2 weeks.
We eat our granola on Greek yogurt, with milk like cereal, and just plain for a quick snack.
