There isn’t much you can make in the kitchen as forgiving and yet still totally impressive as granola so it’s a great project to make as a gift. This recipe--dare we even call it that?--really allows you to use what you have and make it how you (and your mom) really like to eat it... and that’s what cooking is all about. Fruit? Nuts? Seeds? How sweet? How salty? You get to answer all these questions. We’ll have time to decorate a jar or bag and even make a card for mom.
INGREDIENTS (double it for a big batch!):
• rolled oats (not quick-cooking)
• oil (olive and coconut are our favorites but sunflower, vegetable, or canola will work)
• maple syrup or honey
• brown sugar (light or dark)
• chopped nuts, seeds or a combo (walnuts, pecans, almonds, cashews; pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds)
• flaked or shredded coconut, optional
• dried fruit like raisins, currants, cherries,, cranberries, apricots, dates
• pure vanilla extract
• Ground spices (cinnamon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg), optional
• Salt (we like coarse kosher salt but any will do)
• 9x13-inch baking sheet or cake pan (two for double batch)
• vessel to hold the granola - you will make about 5 (or 10!) cups’ worth so you could use anything from a gallon zippered plastic bag to a large storage jar. Get creative!
• paper, pens or paints, clear packing tape (to make the label)
• materials to make a card
You’ll receive the lesson plan via email the week before the workshop and an email reminder with the Zoom link 30 minutes before class.
With the proper pre-class prep, our lessons are designed for students to be able to cook without parental participation, but parents know their children best. Some children may need a hand with particular equipment or instructions.
Families using one screen for more than multiple children need only to purchase one seat for the family. Sign up one of your children and note at checkout who the other child(ren) are. If you sign up more than one, we will assume you are opting to pay for more than one as a means of supporting our work. Thank you!
If signing up from outside the U.S. you will need a workaround to get through the registration process. Select any U.S. state from the drop-down menu, but then put your actual postal code in the “zip code” section. We don’t need your mailing address so the stand-in state doesn’t matter, but this way your credit card will be authorized through the billing postal code.
