There are two types of people in this world: those who make their own granola and those who don’t. If you are the former then you can skip this post, because I won’t be sharing anything with you that you don’t already know. However, if you are the latter then listen here! This is seriously addictive.
See, here’s the thing about granolas like trail mix, you can put whatever you want in it. It’s easy to grab a handful if you’re in a hurry, eat as a breakfast cereal, or to use as a topping for your favorite dessert. I used to buy these ALL of the time for my daughter’s lunches. Not only are these better for you, but they are incredibly less expensive.
This recipe calls for wheat germ. Although it is not necessary to the recipe, I highly recommend picking some up. (I just started using it when I saw it as an ingredient for our Homemade Graham Crackers. Now it’s a staple in our pantry). A little google search revealed that there is actually a website called www.wheatgermbenefits.com that tells you about the benefits of wheat germ. Here’s a quote:
Wheat germ is a good source of:
- B vitamins such as folate, niacin, thiamin, and vitamin B6
- Complex carbs
- Omega-3 fatty acids
- Vitamin E
Booyah. Now go try this recipe!
PS: If you’re wondering how the recipe got its name, it’s because so many people have responded to our taste test with “Wow, that is #@*% good!”. No exaggerating, and substitute actual swear words.
