I don't know about you, but I have always been a big fan of granola cereal. I loved honey bunches of oats growing up. Recently I began to make my own cereal- it is cheaper and tastes so much better!
3 C organic rolled oats
1/2 C wheat germ
2 C puffed rice
1/8 C cinnamon
1/8 C organic cane sugar
1 1/2 C local honey
1/2 C Almond Oil
1/2 C chopped Almonds
1 C Organic Freeze Dried Strawberries
1/2 C Organic Freeze Dried Apples
Measure out all of the dry ingredients- excluding the sugar and fruit- and mix them in a large bowl.
In a small sauce pan, heat up the honey and the sugar until the sugar has dissolved.
Pour the mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients.
Use a large cookie sheet and line it with parchment paper
Pour the granola onto the parchment paper and press down hard.
Cook at 275 degrees for 60-70 minutes.
Pull out of oven and let cool on the counter.
Using a plastic knife, break up the granola when cooled.
In a large air tight jar put the cereal and fruit together and shake.
Enjoy warm or cold with almond, soy, or organic milk!
1 handfull of raw almonds
1/2 Cup of Plain Greek Yogurt
1 TBSP wheat germ
1/2 Cup Fresh Raspberries
1/2 Apple- chopped (you can leave the skin on it provides a great fiber)
1 Cup of Ice
10 cherries (pitted)
Blend all ingredients until smooth
Raw almonds are a great source of fiber, protien, and omega 3's- very good for your heart. Greek yogurt is full of protien. Wheat germ is very good for your digestion and overall health. Raspberries, apples, and cherries -when fresh- are known to be energizing fruits. The ice will give you hydration which is essential to staying alert and awake. This is also a great smoothie for your complexion. I would drink this about an hour before a hard workout.
