muscle maker

yes, that's the name of the granola that i made tonight (recipe from Women's Health). researchers found that vitamin E in the granola's nuts, apricots, and oatmeal, helps speed muscle recovery after you workout too hard.

• nonstick cooking spray
• 3 cup plain oatmeal
• 1/2 cup almonds and hazelnuts
• 1/3 cup sesame seeds
• 1/3 cup honey
• 1/3 cup dark brown sugar,
• 1/4 cup canola oil
• 2 tablespoon orange juice
• . Dash of salt
• 1/4 cup dried apricots,


1. Preheat oven to 300 ° and coat a cookie sheet with cooking spray.

2. In a large bowl, mix oats, nuts, and seeds. In a separate bowl, stir honey, sugar, oil, juice, and salt together.

3. Combine the two bowls and spread mixture on the cookie sheet. Bake about 20 minutes or until evenly browned. Let cool.

4. Stir in apricots, then place granola in six airtight ziplock bags for easy retrieval.
