A Big Ol’ Jumble Sale

Easy Not-So Healthy Recipe: Granola
Granola is oats baked with fat and sugar to make it crunchy and tasty. Supermarket granola generally uses cheap ingredients, however if you make it at home, you can be on quality control. It is staggering when you see just how much fat / sugar is in there. 300 grams is around 8 modest servings and if you look at the photo you will see the ingredients. You can see why porridge / raw muesli is better for you.
50g butter (fat)
50g jam (sugar)
50g honey (sugar)
300g oats, I use Scott’s old-fashioned whole oats
– Preheat oven to 170 degrees C (fan oven).
– Pop the jam, honey and butter in a big jug and microwave for 1 minute (or melt in a pan).
– Add the oats and combine.
– Spread oats out on a baking tray, you can leave them in clumps.
– Bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. You may need to experiment with oven temperature. Lower and slower cooking is best.
– Cool and try not to eat it all at once. It’s treat food! Good for desserts too!

If you’re a high achiever but sometimes feel you don’t fit in, this could be the must-read for you this winter. ‘Rebel Talent : Why it pays to break the rules at work and in life‘ by behavioral scientist Francesca Gino examines the role of the rebel in innovating and leading. Could you be happier by rebelling a bit more?
And Finally… We’re on the Hunt For…
The time has come for Griffen Fitness to expand – We’re looking for an excellent PT to share studio space. Regulars will know that I refer to the studio as my ‘girl shed’ so finding the right trainer is essential. Do you know an exceptional individual starting in the fitness biz? If so, get them to drop me a line.
Have a happy and healthy November,
