internet recipes--AGGGGHHHH!!

Monday, October 09, 2017

okay--so I have to rant here because I can't leave feedback on the recipe site. atkins has a website with a lot of recipes. found one for granola and decided we would try it tomorrow, so I made it tonight. coconut oil, peanut butter, nuts and unsweetened coconut--lots of nice ingredients. stand over a hot stove stirring constantly for 10 min. bake ate 350 for (according to the recipe) 20 minutes. it seemed like an awful long time to me, but I set the timer and got distracted. at about minute 18 rob says "is something burning? " and I have a whole cookie sheet full of expensive ingredients that resembles asphalt. so tomorrow breakfast will be something else, and I will have to wait a week until I get more sunflower seeds to make it again--this time for half the bake time, checking it every 5 min. I can't see a way to leave feedback for the recipe where I could caution other people about the incorrect bake time. I know my oven is at the right temp--I check it periodically with a thermometer. so about an hours worth of work and some very expensive ingredients are all wasted--unless by some crazy chance the chickens will eat burnt to a crisp granola.

    The best granola recipe I've made is on the King Arthur Flour website. It can also be lightened a little bit.

    I hate wasting food like that too.

    That recipe sounds extraordinarily high in fat and not so high in protein. Have you checked the granola recipes here on Sparks? Some of them are quite reasonable, and maybe you should check them out. Oh! And look for museli recipes too!!
