From one of our favorite granola makers in East Blue Hill, Maine: Lucy Benjamin.
In addition to her granola, Lucy makes some really delicious toffee bars. She used to throw the crumbly bits of granola, chocolate and toffee that remained from her toffee bar production to her chickens in the backyard. Then she tried it for herself. Good for us, bad for the chickens. Lucy realized that her ‘chicken feed’ can and should go with a lot of things. Like, everything. Also, it should only be for human consumption.
We use the chicken feed as a treat topper at home. The kids love it in oatmeal and yogurt, but their favorite way is sprinkled liberally over vanilla ice cream with just a bit of hot fudge.
