Fresh Granola and Homemade Yogurt

Fresh Granola and Homemade Yogurt

I LOVE this simple healthy granola from The Hungry Southerner: "Baking it fresh every time. Why buy Granola when you can make it fresh and easy with this simple recipe? Just a few ingredients and some imagination and you're on your way to never eating store bought granola again." So true! And particularly delicious with your favorite local nuts, seeds and fruit. Learn how to make your own homemade yogurt too!

Toasted Hickory Nut Butter Cookies

I love this recipe and story for these buttery crisp cookies made with spelt flour and hickory nuts (which are new to me too). Miss Megan bakes these delectable treats, and says: "The hickory nut imparts such amazing maple flavor. These cookies are a shortbread/butter cookie hybrid and are very addicting!"

These sweet honey cookies from Jane Kinderlehrer's book "Smart Cookies" are delicious! They're so quick and easy to make too, a one bowl and one spoon deal. They can easily be made vegan (by subbing the honey with agave) as well as gluten-free (if you use gluten-free oats).
