i tried larissa's pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe and granola recipe over the last few weeks.  both were good, especially the granola one.  i don't think i can go back to buying granola after this.  it is so much fresher when you bake it yourself!  will and i could really tell the difference.

i'm already getting ideas for ways to mix up the recipe.  next time i'm going to use vanilla instead of almond extract, raisins instead of currants, honey powder instead of brown sugar, and whole wheat oats instead of regular oats.  also, i did use agave nectar instead of maple syrup last time, and it worked out great.  

although there were some "start-up" costs to the recipe (flax seeds wheat germ, extract) i think making it myself is going to save money in the long run.

i like larissa's recipes because they are pretty simple and doable without any crazy ingredients.  thanks larissa!

also, another health note:  in addition to drinking 8 cups of water every day, i'm trying to intake 5 servings of fresh fruit and vegetables every day too.  right now i think i'm averaging 5-6 cups and 3-4 servings.

  1. You're welcome :) Glad the granola was a hit.

    I've had a hard time drinking more water. Let me know if you have tips on how to do that consistently.
