Hello from Winnipeg! I get a lot of requests for my granola recipe. I actually have several granola recipes I like to play around with. This one is pretty basic, but once you have tried it you can change around the ingredients to find a combination you like!
You’ll usually find a variety of nuts and dried fruit in a granola recipe and it is entirely up to you to pick your favorites! Today I chose to use almonds, which provide monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, as well as Vitamin E, which fights inflammation. Almonds are also a source of magnesium, calcium and iron, which are all pretty important for a female athlete like myself!
2 cups oats
¼ cup whole wheat flour
¼ cup brown sugar
