I had an unforgettable weekend Atlanta. One of those amazing trips where you wonder, “Did my life just peak? Can it ever be that awesome again?” One of those trips that deserves a great retelling…until you realize, this is the public Internet.

So instead, I give you granola. Healthy, wholesome, average-life-living, good-for-you, reasonable-choice-making granola.

Easy Protein Granola

  • 1.5 cups oats
  • 2 heaping T protein powder
  • 1t baking powder
  • 1t cinnamon (or lots more, if you’re me)
  • 3T applesauce/other fruit puree
  • 1T liquid sweetener like agave

Stir it all together, then sprinkle it around a pan lined with parchment paper. Press it down/together a little if you like chunkier granola. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

And of course you can spice it up with some dried fruit, other spices, nuts or coconut. But if your life has had just the right amount of spice as of late…Snacking on a giant bowl of the basic version hits the spot.
