Muck granola recipe

Growing up, when it was my dad’s turn to cook, he would open the fridge and start pulling out all the leftovers. Then, we would watch as he started to mix all the leftover together into some sort of concoction that we would be expected to eat. Spaghetti noodles and fried rice? Sound delicious. We called these creations, “muck”. However, even amidst all the weird combinations, my dad always managed to make his muck taste good! This granola is a bit like muck. You can put in just about anything you want-pumpkin seeds, cashews, walnuts, sunflower seeds-and it will still taste good. If you do decide to add your own ingredients, you will just have to add more liquid-it can be more coconut oil or even water.

    The statement “…my dad always managed to make his muck taste good” is certainly a testament to your sweetness and generosity of spirit, or perhaps some sort of nostalgic glow having settled in over a fairly horrific aspect of your childhood.

    However, this “muck” sounds like it would taste amazing. I think Mom and I should give it a try. I could maybe add in some smoked…. wait, scratch that! Old habits die hard!!
