Last weekend, we were in Clare to celebrate Beardy Boyfriend’s younger sister’s birthday – she was turning 30 – and we went to The Armada Hotel in County Clare. It was absolutely beautiful and one of the best bits was the breakfast they provided (except for the part where I started a fire by putting a pain au chocolat in the toaster) – and they happened to have some homemade granola! Me being me, I couldn’t resist taking some home to use for granola cookies.
I’m not a big granola fan (too healthy for me!) but there is something really lovely about homemade granola – perfect in these delicious cookies from Love and Olive Oil – perfect to bring while surfing or horseback riding in County Clare!
