Tread lightly on the previous recipe, my friends. I’ve led you astray.
It might have been the pepitas (it WAS the pepitas…), or it might have been that I cooked it for 45 minutes (not 30 – 40 minutes) (it WAS definitely overcooked), or it could have been that I used 1/2 quick oats, when I should have used all rolled oats, or it could have been that there was just not enough wetness to make it perfect (next time = more applesauce AND more agave), but this was just NOT good, my friends.
Overly dry, overly pepita-y (yes, that’s a word!), and overly yuck.
Sorry. I take back my “easy peasy”. I screwed up the easy peasy.
On the upside: My house smells amazing. If you’re selling your home, DEFINITELY make some granola the morning of an open house!
