I’m a food carrier, whatever you want to call it. If you’ve done Body Beast, you know Sagi would be proud!
I’ve found myself in those situations where you’re away from home, starving and the only option is fast food. Or, you’re in the car and your 8 year-old daughter is ‘going to die’ if she doesn’t get something to eat.
I might be weird, but it saves money and my waistline.
I used honey in ours and its perfect! We’ve used it in the mornings with milk or in yogurt, but mostly as a quick snack. Even my 2 year-old loves it.
Here’s a quick granola base. This recipe was adapted from How to make your own Granola. I made her recipe several times, but mine continued to burn. I lowered the oven temperature and voila, perfect!
- 2 cups (180 grams) old-fashioned oats
- 1/4 cup sweetener such as sugar, maple syrup or honey.
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil, olive oil or melted coconut oil.
- 1 teaspoon flavoring such as vanilla, coconut, or almond extract
- 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon spice such as cinnamon, ginger, pumpkin pie spice.
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Combine all ingredients, until well mixed.
- Spread out on prepared baking sheet and bake until golden, 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
- Let cool for 15 minutes. Granola will harden as it cools.
- Store in an air-tight container.
