Recipes for the Boundary Waters and Quetico


Snow Dog's Hippie Trippin' Granola
thanks to Dan Williamson

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 60's folk rock album (Donovan, Jefferson Airplane, Mamas & Papas, or the like)
  • 1 stick incense
  • 5 C. rolled oats
  • 1 1/3 C. wheat germ
  • 1 C. sliced almonds
  • 1 C. sunflower seeds (unsalted)
  • 1 C. banana chips, crumbled
  • 1 C. coconut
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 C. honey
  • 1/2 C. vegetable oil
  • 1 C. dried mangoes, dried blueberries, raisins, or the like (optional)

Cooking instructions:
Blow dust off turntable and clean needle. Play album and light incense. Mix all other dry ingredients except dried fruit together in a big bowl. Stir together vanilla, honey, and oil in a small bowl until well blended. Pour this mixture into dry ingredients and mix well with both hands (you can use a spoon or gloves if you're squeamish about this). Spread mixture onto 2 cookie sheets and bake at 300 degrees for 20-30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Let cool and store in airtight container.

Omit the dried fruit and bake for only 20 minutes if you will be using the granola for Hippie Trippin' Granola Bars.

For maximum hippie trippin' results, do not cut hair or shave for 6 months prior to making recipe. Do not substitute Jefferson Starship or (worse yet) Starship for Jefferson Airplane CD or results will be inedible.
