A hearty granola full of oats and seeds is a should for athletes. However the costly store-bought stuff is usually loaded with sugar. Our ginger-spiked granola is flippantly sweetened with blackstrap molasses, the sticky good things that’s left behind after sugarcane is refined. That makes it excessive in minerals, together with potassium, calcium, iron and magnesium — minerals many athletes don’t get sufficient of. Be warned: In the event you share your home made granola with family and friends, they’ll be asking you to make it again and again and once more.
