You'll Want This Granola Before Every Practice

Disclaimer: This might be the only thing you ever want to eat again. Ever.

Everyone needs to charge up before practice, and one of the best ways to do so is with pre-workout carbs that you eat one to four hours before exercising.

The granola is easy to make and gets bonus points for being a convenient snack on-the-go. You know, just in case those 4 A.M. practices leave little time for a sit-down breakfast!

The granola can store for up to a month, so you are well set with a healthy snack. (Disclaimer: it is hard to keep friends and family from finishing the whole recipe in just a few days!)

So, without further ado, we present to you the single yummiest granola recipe you will need to get those healthy carbs.

Hungry yet?
  • 3 cups rolled oats

  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds

  • 1 cup sunflower seeds

  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut chips (large)

  • 1 1/2 cup nuts, such as pecans or walnuts

  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar

  • 2 tsp salt

  • 3/4 cup maple syrup

  • 1/2 cup olive oil

  • 1 cup dried cranberries


Mix all nuts, seeds, brown sugar, salt, coconut flakes. Whisk together oil and syrup. Combine wet and dry ingredients and mix well. Bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Add dried cranberries after baking. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a month.

*If you want to make the recipe a bit healthier, you can use 2 tbsp less olive oil without sacrificing flavor.
