Feeling like a change and wanting to use up the fruit butter I made, I decided to turn my hand to making fruit butter granola. This is a great variation for home-made breakfast.
Head straight on to the Recipe For Fruit Butter Granola ♥
When Dave and I started travelling overseas on a regular basis we invested in a UK Sim Card. My friend Talya got it for us so it was registered in her name and with her address. We kept the SIM in an old phone but when Dave upgraded his phone we decided the card should go into what was now his old phone. This meant getting a new mobile number and I am now the registered user. I call this our UK phone and once a month it gets turned on. We have to send a SMS every 60 days to keep the card active. It is easier to just do this in the first week of the month so I don’t forget. I bring the phone with me to work as each time it gets turned on there are updates. I just cannot believe how many!

And as it is an android phone you cannot delete half of the Applications. Updating is always a good idea. I made the same granola recipe for more than 10 years before changing it up a bit. For the past 2 years I have made toasted muesli but as they say, a change is as good as a holiday. And this recipe for fruit butter granola is really good. I only made a small batch in case it did not work out but this weekend I am going to make more. I will double the recipe to make use of all the pear and lemon butter I made. And then I shall have an excuse to make more fruit butter. Do you make home-made granola? And if so, how often do you change your recipe?

Lovely recipe, Tandy. I’d like to try this sometime when I need some more muesli. Thank you so much for sharing x
Thank you so much for the compliment Liz 🙂
Granola is one of my favorites for breakfast and for snacks, what a wonderful idea to add your pear and lemon butter, must have been amazing!
It was, and a good idea for all the jars you made 🙂
I do like granola although sometimes I get annoyed because it take me so long to eat with it being so chewy. This recipe sounds very good.
I think when it is raw it is very chewy 🙂
I do make quite a bit of home made granola and I think I do need to change it up a bit. I do change the dried fruit and seeds here and there. This looks delicious.
Thanks Jem, I am trying to be more adventerous each month 🙂
