Coconut Granola - YUM!

One of my readers recently left a comment requesting a recipe for granola.

So I'm posting the recipe I've used from a book called  Eat Fat, Lose Fat by Sally Fallon and Dr. Mary Enig. It comes from the people at the Weston A. Price Foundation.

Here it is:
Coconut Granola
8 cups rolled oats 1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup melted coconut oil 
1 1/2 cups whole yogurt
2 cups water
1/2 cup raw honey
1 teaspoon real sea salt or Redmond Real salt (available at Whole Foods)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup dried, unsweetened coconut (available at Whole Foods in the bulk bin section)
2 cups chopped Crispy Nuts
1 cup raisins or dried cranberries

Directions: Mix oats, butter, coconut oil, yogurt, and water together in a large bowl. Pat down, cover with a plate, and leave on the kitchen counter for 2 days. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Place honey, salt, and cinnamon in a small bowl and set in a small pot of simmering water until honey warms and becomes thin. Mix honey with oat mixture. Place on 2 parchment-lined baking sheets and bake for several hours, until completely dry and crisp. Mix with coconut and serve with fresh or frozen berries and whole raw milk or cream diluted with a little water.

Once-a-Week Finger Foods for a Year - 52 To Be Exact!

Savory, Fruity and Nutty, Cheesy, Skewer, Chip and Dip, Gluten-Free, Bread, Spicy, Veggie and Dessert Finger Foods
Every December our Bible study/fellowship group celebrates with a Feast and Fellowship gathering. And every December at that gathering we bring only appetizers to the table. It has always been such a hit with the food that this year I decided to post links to some mouth-watering finger food recipes. You will find various types of appetizers in this list - savory, fruity, cheesy, chip and dip, gluten-free, breads, spicy, skewers, veggies and finally sweet dessert types. Of course, some of these finger foods overlap into more than one category.

But just a warning, some of these recipes are not characteristic of what I usually post here at Franziska's Pantry. So don't be surprised when you see sugar, white flour, marshmallows, etc. in the lists of ingredients for these appetizers. But, hey! Once a year or even once a week won't do too much damage. Sometimes you j…

Sausage, Egg and Cream Cheese Breakfast Casserole

Last week four of my dear friends came to my home for a book club meeting. We had breakfast together and discussed the book we are reading together - The Gospel Comes with a House Key by Rosaria Butterfield.

This book is all about what the author calls "radically ordinary hospitality". She wrote the book based on her own salvation experience and it is compelling to read. The book calls us to use our homes to minister to those in our neighborhoods, partnering with our kindred in Christ, for the purpose of making strangers into neighbors and neighbors into family of God. 
Let Rosaria tell you in her own words in the following video:
After having seen this video for the first time, I told my husband, Robert, that I wanted to read Rosario's book so I could understand how she approached hospitality - her radically ordinary hospitality. So on my birthday, one of my gifts was this book. (Thank you, Robert!) 
But I'm not reading the book by myself. Reiterating, there are fo…
