I made a batch of this to kick off my month of living like Jane Fonda – more about this coming soon…. It produced 2 x 1 litre Kilner jars of granola so lucky Mr Rathbone got one for scoffing on his holiday, and I kept one for myself.
Now, this is not a CRUNCHY granola, it’s kinda chewy so if you make this, I would recommend soaking the granola in whatever kind of milk you choose, for about an hour before you eat it. Alternatively, you could maybe soak it in fruit juice. Mr R does NOT recommend soaking it overnight… Overnight oats this is not…
Minimalist Baker’s Peanut Butter Overnight Oats – these are utterly divine!
Here’s Jane telling us why we should never skip breakfast. To be honest, I NEVER skip breakfast, just like La Fonda, I believe it is the most important meal of the day…
But Jane has a much bigger appetite than me it seems. She recommends a portion of 185 grams of granola for breakfast, that is heaps man! I am having half that amount and it’s perfect for me. I eat like a bird don’tcha know…
Thanks Jane, I’m not planning to skip a single breakfast during Jane Fonda month…
