Bedroom Inspiration: Gustav Klimt’s “The Kiss”

HOMEMADE GRANOLA & MINT NAILS

There are some things that I love making myself- and some things I would much rather buy. I used to be a granola-buyer and had no idea how easy and personalized you can make it to your likes- you can add in anything you want! Now, whenever I have a free day, I replenish my stash of granola to use throughout the week on yogurts and even straight from the batch.

MAKE-IT-YOURSELF GRANOLA

IN A LARGE BOWL

3 1/2 c oats

1 c whole wheat flour

SOME MIX-INS I LOVE (usually adding up to about 1 cup of toppings)

craisins, sliced almonds, flaked coconut, sunflower seeds, raisins or whatever else you have in the cupboard

THE LIQUIDS (mix together well before pouring over dry ingredients)

1/2 c brown sugar

1/2 c oil

1/4 c honey

1/4 c water

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Pour liquids over other ingredients in large mixing bowl and stir to coat everything. Flatten mixture out into a thin layer on a large baking sheet.  Bake at 250 degrees for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. When you take it out of the oven, stir again and allow to cool- it will harden once cooled.  Store in an airtight container.

 

And what better thing to do while it finishes in the oven than paint your nails! Color I chose this time around:
