here’s a fun and delicious recipe for you. easy and fun for the kids to join you in the kitchen to whip this up.
- about 30 lavender stems*
- 4 cups extra thick rolled oats
- 1 Tbs. olive oil
- 1/3 cup blueberry spread
- 1 cup pecans, chopped
- pinch of salt
- 1/3 cup dried blueberries
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Reserve the buds from 8 stems and mince. Steep everything else (including the stems where you removed the buds) in hot water, just enough to cover, for 5 minutes. Mix thick-cut oats with olive oil, blueberry jam, pecan pieces, and a pinch of salt with lavender infusion, after you’ve removed the soaked stems and buds.
- Bake in two batches on a cookie sheet for 10-15 minutes, until oats are golden. Let oats cool and harden, then add dried wild blueberries and the finely minced lavender buds.
all lavender is fragrant, but not all are edible. you might want to find your lavender from the edible herb section of your local market or from your farmer’s market.
take this yummy granola on your summer outings; to the beach or zoo or just enjoy a beautiful easy breakfast outside together.
