Thanks for another great season!

Another season of Children's Learning Garden programs at Waltham Fields Community Farm has come to an end... but don't despair! We will continue to post recipes, farm news and more throughout the coming months, and we hope that you will continue to visit our blog to stay connected over the winter season!

Here is the recipe for "Compost Granola" from last week's CLG program:

Compost Granola*
*Many ingredients can either be excluded or replaced depending on allergies or preferences

"Carbon" Ingredients:
2 cups rolled oats

"Nitrogen" Ingredients:
1 cup dried fruits

"Soil Organism" Ingredients:
3/4 cup sunflower and/or pumpkin seeds
3/4 cup chopped nuts

4 tbsp vegetable oil
1 cup honey

Oven/toaster oven at 350 degrees F


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Spread the oats on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 10-15 minutes. Mix the oil and honey in a saucepan and stir over medium heat until thoroughly mixed and "liquidy" (thinned-out). Mix the toasted oats, honey/oil mixture, and all other ingredients in a large bowl. Spread this oat mixture on a greased baking or roasting pan and bake for 30-60 minutes or until browned and crunchy. Break it into pieces and enjoy!
