It is a rainy San Pedro Sunday morning – perfect baking weather so I decided to make granola. Oats are very cheap here – I paid $6.75 for a 2lb container at Twin Supermarket on St Thomas St. near Municipal Airport. Coconut was $6.89 and raisins $4.09 – both purchased at Save U. When I looked it up the recipes I found said to use slow cook oats and not the quick kind. Unfortunately, I had already bought the fast cooking ones on my Belize City shopping trip so I decided to wing it.
I also added in maple syrup – coconut oil – shredded coconut and raisins. If it works out well I will get fancier and add some nuts and dried fruit next time around.
So far so good homemade granola passed the tacoboy taste test. I Will see if Cindy and Maureen give it a pass as well – gave them both some to try.
A bit of sad news this morning on San Pedro Sun today there was a big fire at Neri’s tacos late last night. The smoke was visible from our veranda which is 1.5 miles south of there. Neri’s was a favorite place for delicious cheap Belize food to many and will be missed. Condolences to all those who were affected by the fire.
