This weather is AMAZING and a Granola recipe

When I got up yesterday morning and it was calling for a high of 17C/63F I was pretty excited to say the least!

Definitely a run outside was in order!

Even though it was just a 5KM run it felt great and my pace was easy and comfortable!

Cherry, Dark Chocolate and Nut Granola
Dry ingredients
2 cups old fashioned oats
2 T chia seed
2 T flax seed
1/4 cups almonds chopped
1/4 cup pecan pieces
mix up
In a pot on medium heat

1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup nut butter ( I used natural peanut butter)
1/3 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup almond milk

mix this until it melts
pour into the dry mixture and mix well
Put on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.

Bake at 350C for 20 min-Do not mix or stir when it is hot
Take out of the oven and when it cools break into pieces and add in 1/2 cup each,

Dark chocolate chips and dried cherries

I store mine in an airtight container in the freezer (I think it tastes best cold)
