So if you’ve been following the meal prepping series, you’ll already know I feel like I’m eating a lot of chicken and turkey recently. Given that these are lean meats which are high in protein, it means I’m winning on all bases.
I did however get bored of eating egg cups relatively quickly, and I’m now beginning to bore of the chicken and cottage cheese combo. It’s tough, I’m trying my best to stay on track!
Last week I really really wanted something sweet after I’d eaten my dinner, and I had around 200 calories from my daily allowance remaining after I’d eaten. It’s probably worth noting, this rarely ever happens, so I was excited at the thought of eating something sweet.
So, what to have?
I had some Greek yogurt in the fridge which I thought would be great mixed with a little vanilla flavoured sweetener but I wanted something with a little bite too. Seeing as I was along at home, I decided to make some granola. A little trial turned out super yum so I wanted to share it with you all as it would make a great addition to your usual cereal breakfasts! It was really quick and is also super adaptable to personal tastes too! Having looked at a few recipes online, I came up with the combination of butter, maple syrup, oats and nuts along with a handful or two of cornflakes. You can of course add dried fruit and any number of other seeds and grains to your liking. I prefer it simple and I’ve been serving it with slightly sweetened Greek yogurt or snacking on it by itself for a little sweet crunch with my cup of tea while I’m working!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! The recipe can be found here, it’s also super easy to scale up as required!
