Yoghurt granola

Granola And Yogurt Is A Great Pre Or Post Workout Meal.

Granola is a great way to add some ‘excitement’ to yogurt and shakes. A well prepared granola can also pack a serious punch in the fiber and even protein categories. Do beware MOST store-bought granolas are LOADED with added sugars. Not a good look. Defeats the purpose of eating all that healthy stuff that granola consists of. Here is a simple recipe that takes under and hour to make. Eat this over fat-free Greek yogurt an hour before you work out and you will power through your sets with energy to spare 😉

High Fiber Granola:

Ingredients:

2 cups of rolled oats

1/4 cup of ground flax seeds

2 tablespoons of whole flax seeds

1/4 cup of canola oil

1/2 cup of roughly chopped walnuts

1/2 cup of dieced dry apple slices

1/4 cup of dried blueberries or raisins or cranberries

Cooking Spray

2- Spray cooking spray on a large cookie sheet and spread mixture onto it. Bake for 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.

3- When done add the dried fruit and mix to combine.
