Super Seed Granola

Happy Friday, Friends!  The weekends lately for me have meant one thing…SPIN class.

Russ and I have been on a spin class craze. Since I developed a slight bulging disc in my back–I have had to back off my running. Cutting back on running, of course, is so very sad for me…but when one door closes a new one opens, right?  Spin class is inside “my new door”. I actually really love the 45 minutes of blasting music and the motivation from the instructor to give it your all. It’s quick and intense but fun for me. 🙂

Anyway…how does this all fit in with super seed granola?? Russ and I tend to go for a smoothie bowl post work-out. The smoothie bowl we order has this ridiculous vanilla maple super seed granola that adds a little crunch, a nice dose of fiber and minerals to our post work-out fuel. Here’s my version…yummmmmmmmm.As always…I love trying to make recipes from foods I purchase outside of my kitchen. And….I have been on a mission to create a delicious share-worthy version of this super seed granola topping. And…good news…this recipe is pretty darn near close.

I love this granola on top of Green Valley lactose free kefir/yogurt or sprinkled on top of my morning oats. It also adds a little crunch, fiber and added nutrition on top of your favorite smoothie bowl.

Here’s my recipe…if you want to give it a whirl!

    Yum! Trader Joe’s sells this super seed & ancient grain mix with quinoa, millet, chia, and buckwheat in it that I’ve been using to make a granola that’s very similar to this!
