I made this recipe this afternoon and took some photos to capture the basic steps of my recipe. Granola doesn’t have to be square! Using Quaker Oats and Quaker Simply Granola I poured my granola mix into a silicone flower-shaped piece of bakeware – scroll down for pictures.
These photos have not been retouched, nor have they been tailored for SEO. Final photos will be watermarked and text will be added as needed to explain the recipe/story.
The ingredients are easy to find and use, and customizable.
A little closer view of the ingredients.
I toasted a few of the oats for the tops of my “shaped” granola bars.
Add the “extras” and mix.
This is a silicone flower-shaped piece of bakeware.
Fill and press granola mixture firmly into the silicone mold.
Here is the underside. It needs to set up and cool for at least an hour…
Shape into a circle for a Christmas Wreath. I would add decorations, candies and a bow.
You could pile them high for a three-dimensional Christmas tree. I’d create a double batch for this to pile it higher and make the tree sturdier. It would be fun to hang tinsel made of frosting and come up with candy ornaments, etc. to decorate the tree.
From the other side.
Just think of all the fun things you could design and decorate – a floral garden for girls, or one-eyed aliens for boys. Or you could create The Very Hungry Caterpillar eating berries or flowers. For Christmas you can make mini Christmas wreaths.
Another pro if you hire me: if you like this proposal I can have it ready by the 19th (or sooner). Thanks so much!
