>Protein Filled Breakfast

Posted on

>I’m in a smoothie rut. I tried to get out of it by buying different protein powders and liquids to mix in. It didn’t work…at all. I’ve been reading a blog lately called Oh She Glows and I really enjoy reading about Angela’s life and her food and fitness journey. I came across her recipe for Power House Granola and I knew I had to make this. IT IS INCREDIBLY DELICIOUS. In fact; it’s going to be my breakfast every day until I’m just sick of it! It’s that good. And while yes, it does have quite a bit of fat in in, it’s all fat from healthy sources (various nuts and seeds).  The only thing I changed about this granola was that I swapped pecans for pumpkin seeds, skipped the flax accidentally and left out the chia for no reason at all…since I actually bought Chia Seeds to make this granola. OOPS. I mean…look at this bowl of deliciousness and tell me it’s not calling your name…!
The great thing about this recipe is it is very easy to swap ingredients for what you have on hand. I keep too much stuff at my house; so I had everything except pumpkin seeds. Make this granola…and check out Angela’s blog!


About laceythevegan

I'm a reader, a food lover, a crazy cat lady, an animal lover, local shopper and local music supporter. You can find me in East Nashville most of the time, shopping, having a drink at a locally owned bar, or eating food at a local restaurant. I like cumin and smoked paprika way more than I should, winter squashes make me happy, and while I do like most fruits, I only *love* berries and mangoes. I'd rather have salty snacks than sweets, and the darker chocolate is, the better. I still think Earth Balance is the best fake butter, Vegenaise is the best vegan mayo, and Almond Milk tastes better than soy milk. Chia seeds are my favorite egg substitute for the most part, and pumpkin tends to bind better than applesauce-especially in chocolate goods. I know a lot about food and nutrition, but that doesn't mean I'm the healthiest person. I tend to avoid eating out because I know I can make food that tastes better at home.
