Here is a variation on our house granola--a little something I made up recently when I needed to use up some aimless pepitas and dried apples. There is something warm and earthy about this granola--the flavor has memories of autumn and Halloween and the holidays all rolled up inside it. Mr. Beeper calls this recipe, The granola of the gods. While maybe not quite at deity status, this granola is pretty damn good. I mean, I cook a lot and when I tasted this, I was like, Dang, I can make a mean a granola--even if it was sort of accidental the way it came together. The good thing is that I actually wrote the recipe down as I was preparing it (which often does not happen--things often come about a little haphazardly in my kitchen).
