I once had the best granola ever made. It happened many years ago when I was traipsing about Scotland, taking pictures of mustard fields and old ruins. I'm not sure if it was at a B&B or at the Edinburgh home of my pen-pal. All my memory tells me is that there was some really, really good granola and I ate it. I wish I had thought to ask about a recipe or brand or something. Guess I just figured it was some unattainable European thing.
I've been trying to reproduce the just-rightness of that recipe ever since. Granola recipes are all pretty much variations on the same old theme and while most I've tried are good they just can't come close to that memory in my head. But, you know how memories can be.
I recently tried out this recipe a couple times. It was good and of course the additions can make all the difference but there's something about the consistency of the oats themselves that I can't seem to get right.
Anyone have any favorite granola recipes or ideas?
