How GOOD is cereal...Reese's Puffs, Captain Crunch, Lucky Charm's and COOOKKKIIEEE Crisp, the list goes on and on.
The delightful sugar high brought on by these cult classics was a necessity before preschool, but these day I need a breakfast that will give me the strength to hold a plank for over 30 seconds. (Gosh those things are TOUGH!)
Luckily, trainer Lana Titus recommended a heart healthy, fiber packed granola to breakup my love affair with Red Dye #40 and Blue Dye # 2.
Give it a try and let Lana know what you think!
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup brown sugar
4 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup coconut oil (or vegetable if u prefer)
5 cups oats
2 cups sliced almonds
2 cups dried fruit (optional)
1). Whisk together the maple syrup, brown sugar, vanilla extract, salt and oil in a bowl.
2) Mix in your oats, almonds and dried fruit.
3) Spread out on wax paper lined baking sheet. Bake at 325 degrees for 40 min. and rotate half way through!
Love, Sweat + Cheers,
