My hubby. He wanted a new batch of granola and instead of sticking with Bob’s Red Mill oats, he picked up a box of oat bran. Bran, not oats. Oat bran and oats are two different things. I needed to make something out of it (more or less to help him feel better). We were visiting with the in laws yesterday morning and it came to me: old[er] people and bran is a natural. And they were the only ones who liked it. We, the young[er] people needed to slather them with butter, which then nullifies the healthy factor. The old[er] people in your life will appreciate you.

Why is this can #54 AND #53? The first batch was like lead. I tried using egg whites only. Really healthy doesn’t mean really gross.
