Grab me some granola! It can be challenging to find health snacks, let alone a health breakfast. Well have no fear. My good friend Karen Urbanek who just so happens to have written an entire cookbook on health eating with a focus on raw, fresh, and delicious.
Now don’t go running. No one expects you to become a vegan and hug trees. But her knowledge about how the body works and what foods fuel you and what foods don’t it insane! Like totally insane!
And when she says she’s cooking, the entire town (no joke) comes running.
But you don’t have time to run over to her house in Utah I’m pretty sure and I wish I did, but I don’t either. I thought a good second place would be sharing her recipe for ZuZu’s Apple Cinnamon Seedy Granola.
I have to say, having tried this before, it is delicious! And SUPER easy to make yourself. And is perfect for travel.
But don’t take my word for it, try it yourself.
ZuZu’s Apple Cinnamon Seedy Granola:
- 1/2 cup pure cane sugar or coconut sugar
- 1/2 cup honey or agave
- 9 cups organic gluten free oats
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1/4 cup flax seeds
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 3/4 cup dried apple
- 3/4 tablespoon cinnamon
- Heat sugar and honey/agave until dissolved.
- Mix all ingredients together.
- Bake in roaster pan at 180 degrees for 2 hours stirring every 15 minutes.
And that is it!
Not only are these ingredients every grocery store has. But it is also super easy! And I love easy! And I love simple. Most importantly, I love good!
Chomp on this as a roadside snack.
Sprinkle this on yogurt (I love coconut yogurt) or grab a cup of fruit from the truck stop and mix it together.
Remember every little change you make adds up. And that is the truth!
But at Mother Trucker Yoga we understand that making any change can be challenging. So to make it easier consider keeping a food journal to help you track what you are eating. Because you can’t change what you don’t yet know exists.
Try out this easy recipe and let us know how you like it! And most importantly share out this recipe with fellow trucker or make some for them and share in the enjoyment of eating it together.
