Clean and Easy Granola


Oats….A staple in the diet of nearly every bodybuilder, figure/fitness/physique athlete, or any one else following a clean eating regimen. Starting your day with a bowl of hot oatmeal is great, but sometimes you may want something different or you occasionally need a little crunch!!!

The following is a quick and easy recipe for a great tasting, healthy granola.

5) Bake 30-40 minutes (or until golden brown) stirring and breaking up every 8-10 minutes

Depending on your nutritional needs or tastes, you can add (after baking)  dried fruit, nuts, shredded coconut, flax meal, wheat germ, etc. I have also experimented with various flavored extracts (maple, banana, caramel, coconut) in place of the vanilla with great results. Be creative!!!  This recipe is just a base  (…but great on it’s own). Add to taste anything you desire to create your own unique take on granola.
