Sprouted Fig (The Smoothie Lover)
June 2, 2013

This has been such a great weekend – with so many nice things to do and so many kind people to be together with. I mean what can possible be better than a reunion with one of your best friends, a nice run, a great night with the girls, a fun birthday party and a sleep over? And to top it all off the weather has been great.

Friday one of my great friends came home from England after 9 months. Her family, 3 other friends and I picked her up at the airport. I can’t describe how good it was to see her again. I think we all cried – especially her little sister. What a reunion! A perfect day which I’ve been waiting for for months.

Yesterday was great as well. A boy from my class threw a birthday party for the class and before the party the girls met at one of my girlfriends’ house. We had dinner, talked and dressed up for the party. All of those girls are so kind. We are only 10 girls in my class (out of 28) and 3 weren’t able to participate so we were only 7. But that was great actually. Everybody gets to say something.

The party was nice as well and afterwards the girls made a sleepover together. So this morning we went out of bed, made a delicious breakfast, talked and talked and talked and heard a ton of Disney songs. Haha – those are the best :)

For the breakfast I brought granola (yep – my love for granola is great). Actually I made the basic one for the pot luck breakfast, but since I was already in the kitchen I decided to try making a new edition of the granola. This time with coconut. It’s great!

All of our rhododendrons have burst into bloom – amazing!

Coconut Granola

Basic recipe
Makes about 3 cups

  • 1 cup oldfashioned oats
  • 1 1/2 cup rice krispies
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 tbsp. coconul oil
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 1/4 cup water
Preheat oven to 325°F / 160° C.
 Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl and all wet in a sauce pan. Bring the oil-honey-water mixture to the boil and boil for 3 minutes. Pour the liquid over the dry ingredients and stir undtil everything is wet.
Spread out on a baking sheet with nonstick paper and bake for approx. 20 minutes stirring a couple of times. The baking time differs a lot from oven to oven so check often. The granola hardens a lot once cooled down, so it shouldn’t be completely dry in the oven. It’s done when it turns golden.
Cool down and store in an airtight container.
