vanilla almond granola

Hey!! Hope you all had an "epic" weekend as I did! The race was amazing! The epic relay, honestly was my favorite relays of all time! I will do an entire re-cap as soon as I can gather my thoughts and all 8,996,093 pictures. The day of the race I whipped up some vanilla almond granola to fuel my team through the finish line. It was a huge hit and there wasn't an oat left behind.

                                                        {Vanilla Almond Granola}

You will need:

  • 2 Cups Old fashioned rolled oats

  • 1/2 C. Agave Nectar or Honey

  • 1 tbs vanilla extract

  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (optional)

  • 1/2 C. Roasted almond butter

  • 1/2 C. Slivered Almonds

How to:

Pre-heat oven to 350
Heat up almond butter for about 10-15 seconds in microwave, - this makes it easier to stir
Mix all ingredients into one bowl
Spread onto a cookie sheet
Bake for 10 minutes
Stir it around and back for an additional 3-5 minutes
Let cool and ENJOY!

I love this granola and is the perfect on the go snack, post-workout, or even a movie theater snack!
