This is a good-tasting granola relying primarily on oat flakes and flours. I chose to grind the buckwheat and regret I did not also grind the sesame seeds. I have not been able to find grape nuts on the supermarket shelves for some time. It was never the most popular of cereals, though there were some aficionados such as myself. So I substituted another old favourite, Red River cereal.
I like the fact that this is baked at a relatively cool temperature. It makes it easier to control the level of browning.

Making this brought the old Mother Goose rhyme back to my head.
Curly Locks, Curly Locks, wilt thou be mine?
Thou shalt not do dishes, nor yet feed the swine,
but sit on a cushion and sew a fine seam
and feed upon strawberries, sugar and cream.
Curly Locks would have swooned at this combination of “strawberries, sugar and cream”, though actually honey is used in this version. And it gets frozen for a delightfully cool treat on a hot day. Haven’t seen one of those this year yet. No matter, it tastes great unfrozen too. And you can eat it sooner.

I don’t like milk. I should qualify that. I use milk for cooking. I pour it on my cereal. I like milkshakes and plenty of milk products (yogurt, cheese, buttermilk, sour cream). But I last had a glass of milk to drink when I was six. I just don’t like milk as a beverage.
Nor have I ever taken to soymilk. I don’t care for soy “dairy” products either. I do not like soybased “cheezes” nor soy-based alternatives to ice cream or yogurt. (Interestingly, I do like soy products that don’t pretend to be something else, such as tofu and tempeh.)
But this nut “milk” has converted me. I like it. Poured straight into the glass as a beverage on its own, I like it. So I expect I will also like it on my cereal and in a smoothie or any other way I may use it. I may even get brave enough to try the “cream” version in my coffee.
I used a combination of almonds and cashews and honey to sweeten.
Prior Preparation needed
Cook raw peanuts until very tender. (Since peanuts are actually a sort of bean, I used the same timing as for dried beans and that worked well.) See instructions below on making the purée.
Well,just after trying “a soufflé that any fool can make”, here is a much more tricky one. This came out quite nicely, but the flavour was not remarkable and I don’t consider the result to be worth the effort.

The simple flour and water dough is kneaded and then fried like bannock before being crumbled and drenched in butter and honey for a simple, but satisfying dessert. One might call it Ethiopian popcorn.
