Granola, with either yogurt or milk, for breakfast or as a snack is an excellent energizer. However, the granola found in stores often contains a lot of fat. A meal that’s high in fat slows down absorption of carbohydrates, which won’t help with your workout at all. Our recipe for maple granola has the advantage of being both low in fat and high in carbohydrates, so it will provide all the fuel you need. You’ll also love its delicious maple taste, not to mention the apple and dried fruit. This granola has a significant amount of fibre so make sure to eat it at least one hour before physical activity so it has time to properly digest.
