Easy Granola

I run every Saturday with a great group of women.  We run anywhere from an hour to 3 hours or so and talk about lots of different things while we run.  Actually, to be completely honest, we mostly talk about food.  I’d like to say that we only talk about healthy food but sometimes the smell of a nearby doughnut store or someone cooking bacon gets pretty tempting.  But a lot of the time we do talk about nutritious food.  This recipe is from one of those times and was shared with me by one of my BRFs (best running friends), Monica.


Easy Granola


4 tablespoons almond butter

4 tablespoons honey

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 tablespoons chia seeds

2 cups oats


Mix almond butter, honey, cinnamon and vanilla together.  Add in chia seeds and oats.  Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.  Store in an airtight container in refrigerator.


What type of granola do you enjoy?

  5. What kind of oats did you use? Instant or steel cut?
