This is what our Easter morning looked like. It was quiet and simple and perfect… breakfast on the patio, followed by a long sunny afternoon walk and a movie.
I tend to get easily overwhelmed by holidays. For years, we exhaustingly traveled for (almost) each one. Over-priced airfare and travel delays really start to take the magic out of Christmas mornings and Easter egg hunts. These days I have a new appreciation for the quiet ones — just us two (and the pups) and some tasty food.

(adapted from Naturally Ella)
2 cups rolled oats (not instant)
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup chopped almonds
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
berries of your choice
yogurt of your choice (I like coconut-vanilla)
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Combine wet and dry ingredients separately. Stir to combine.
Pour mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and spread into a thin layer. Stir every 15 minutes… around round 3 start checking to see if it’s done – crispy but not burned. I baked mine for a little less than 1 hour.
Let cool and assemble parfaits. Or just eat the granola.
