Stewed Rhubarb

image

This is a summer favourite in my house. Rhubarb is a sure sign that the gardening season is well under way, and my rhubarb plant is always one of the most successful parts of my garden. We eat stewed rhubarb with granola and yogurt, on top of ice cream, and even on toast! I like it to be a little bit tart, however it is an easy recipe to adjust the sugar quantities to suit your own tastes.

4 cups fresh rhubarb, chopped
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp water

In a saucepan stir ingredients together over medium heat. Once sugar is dissolved turn heat to low. Simmer for 15-20 minutes until rhubarb is broken down and sauce has thickened.

Store in an airtight container and refrigerate. Best if eaten within a week.

Healthy Homemade Granola

image

I have a weakness for granola. Especially when it is mixed in with yogourt and berries it makes such a nice summer breakfast. This is my attempt to create a healthier version of one of my classic faves.

3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1 cup pecans, chopped
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup cashews, chopped
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/3 cup coconut palm sugar
1/4 coconut oil, softened
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup honey, softened
1 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 250 F

In a large bowl combine oats, nuts, seeds, coconut and sugar.

In a separate bowl stir together coconut oil, maple syrup, honey and salt. (It will settle if it sits)

Slowly add the liquid ingredients to the dry, stirring until well combined.

Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 60 minutes. Stir every 15 minutes to ensure even colouring.

While it is cooling, stir several times so it does not stick together. Store in an airtight container.
