Runners Love Cereal!

Cereal. There’s not a runner out there who doesn’t like it. But did you know that you can make your very own cereal at home? It’s inexpensive, healthier, and fun! You can create your own combinations for one of your favorite post-run foods with little effort. Enjoy.

Cereal for Runners
4 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup dried quinoa
1/2 cup whole flax seed
1/2 cup coarsely chopped almonds (use any nuts you like)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon cardamom
1/2 cup coconut oil (or olive oil)
2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup (or honey)
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup dried fruit (pictured: freeze dried strawberries)

Mix all dry ingredients (except fruit) and then add in wet ingredients. Combine and spread out on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper (depending on the size of your cookie sheet you might need to do it in two batches or use two cookie sheets). Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Remove and stir. Bake for another 15. Let cool and then add dried fruit!
