So, it is the middle of summer and my family and I are craving all things Fall. Why, you ask? No idea…
Maybe since moving to Southern California from Minnesota, we miss the seasons. I have been told we have 4 seasons in So Cal, but I have yet to see them…at least not in the drastic manner in which we were used to back in Minnesota.

If you cannot use the brands that I have listed above, it is NOT a deal breaker. These are just the best possible and healthiest versions that I have found through all of my years of research and testing. With regards to canned anything...avoid corn syrup whenever possible. And your sugars should be the least refined if possible. Most of all, use your common sense. If it has too many ingredients and ones you do not recognize as FOOD, avoid it.
Granola won't brown and therefore cannot be used as an indicator of done-ness. Instead, look for bubbling along sides of ramekin.
Coconut Whipping Cream is optional and recipe can be found here
