It has been a while since I last posted. I’ve been SO busy with my class, working at Leo’s, trying to spend time with friends, and I scored an internship! I even missed the deadline to post about foodie penpals. Well, better late then never right?
What a beautiful package Jenni sent me. At first, the person who was supposed to send me a package never contacted me and Jenni said she never got a reply either. After a couple days of no response, Lindsay paired us together. Jenni is from St. Louis, MO and sent me some great local foods! And yes.. it’s ALL VEGAN!
I’m wrapping all my goodies in cute paper from now on.
Jenni sent me two samples of granola. It was AMAZING! I e-mailed her begging for the recipe. She said she just threw in a bunch of stuff together but said she would try to think about what ingredients she used. Here’s the recipe. I haven’t tried making it yet because I don’t have wheat germ.. but since I’ve already eaten all the granola she’s sent me I need to make some SOON.
“I think I may have figured it out! I used a few different recipes I have and combined them to make this granola. I suggest playing around with the flavors you like, it’s very forgiving! I think you could also omit the brown sugar in this one. Honey is normally used, but I decided on the corn syrup to make it vegan friendly. You could also use agave, it’s lighter. I hope that helps and if you make it, it tastes the same!
