My friend Jess has the Spicy Chai Latte mix from Trader Joe’s, and ever since I tried it once at her house, I’M HOOKED on chai (just like phonics). This whole summer my roomies kept raving about it, and I don’t know what took me so long to catch on to the trend. I think I was a little offended that tea would even think about encroaching on the deliciousness of my morning coffee, but now I love it.
I’ve made granola twice before but the first time I burned it. The second time, I didn’t understand that you have to let it dry a bit so it gets crunchy. This time, I think I’m getting closer to getting it right. With some yogurt and fruit, twas a delicious breakfast for the week. You should try it just add whatever you have!!
Here was my guide: http://www.thekitchenismyplayground.com/2012/06/chai-granola.html
Per usual…I didn’t have sunflower seeds, wheat germ, dates or cardamom. Just added whatever nuts I had and some dried cranberries at the end.
spices: cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, ginger, cloves
spread it out on a baking sheet…if you like it clumpy, keep it sort of packed. I like mine more like cereal, so I like to spread it out more
