Merry Christmas! I hope you all had a beautiful and peaceful day and night.

It was a little fun to see all the christmas photos and read all the christmas wishes from you sweet bloggers out there yesterday. Why? Because in Denmark we celebrate christmas on the 24th in the night and not on the 25th. I’d love to try and celebrate christmas in the morning though. It sounds so nice and cozy.

The evening and night of the 24th we go to church (not everyone does, but in my family we do), then we have dinner – and the dessert which I’ve told about – and then comes the best part: dancing and singing around the christmas tree. I love that. And afterwards we open presents.

It has been quite a long time since I last made a batch of granola. Especially when you think about how much I love granola. I think there are six recipes on this blog. Hihi.

This is my favorite so far. Chunky, rustic and full of nuts. Yum!

Enjoy!

    I love granola too, but I don’t make it too often since my family seems to hate it :–( Your version looks amazing though. So you bet it is happening soon at home hehehe. Even if I am the one who eats it, I will make it. Fig anything is lovely, and I adore those huge chunks ; ) x
