Here’s an Energizing, Protein-Packed Granola Treat You Need to Make Today

This chocolate whey protein granola concoction is a delicious treat that comes from Jennifer Samway, endurance athlete and yoga instructor. It’s low in sugar and has plenty of protein from the BeFit Chocolate Protein powder, buckwheat and nuts. The walnuts and coconut oil provide healthy fats, buckwheat and oats add fiber, and the cinnamon gives it a nice kick of spice. You can eat it on its own as an easy snack, or like cereal covered with your favorite kind of milk.  It’s also a great topping for a smoothie, yogurt, or cottage cheese.
