I haven’t made granola in so long but when my workout support group had this recipe to try I thought how yummy and it would be great to share. I didn’t change anything in this recipe, I know its a change but I figured it is just so good why mess with a good thing.
This recipe is basic but so good and plus good for you, like did you know that you get 293 milligrams of potassium in 1 Tablespoon of molasses and this recipe has 1/4 cup of molasses (4 tablespoons) so not to shabby for a cereal or snack. Plus the benefits of oatmeal is amazing. Oatmeal provides antioxidants, improves your insulin response, helps with cholesterol levels, helps with weight management, constipation and helps to promote good bacteria in your gut. the list can go on and with each ingredient of this recipe really does so much to help us plus it taste great!
I just love how our food can help us or if we eat the wrong foods how it can do such damage. We can either create the problem or heal with food, and to me that is so amazing.
