Homemade Crunchy Granola

Time for some honest truth – busy lives mean we don’t always take care of ourselves the way we should. We do the best we can, but life just never slows down. There are times that we have to really STOP and think about what our bodies need internally to feel and perform better. By keeping bodies well regulated, will not only keep you feeling better, but promotes overall well-being and health.

Getting enough fiber can be a challenge. Not all the foods we consume have the fiber intake that we need, and when we cook certain foods, the fiber intake goes down. Using Benefiber® on a daily basis can keep your body well regulated! If you are anything like me, well, you don’t want bland tasting fiber each day. Benefiber® tastes great and can be incorporated into so many of your daily foods!

If you are looking for a great way to get the entire family to get their daily recommended fiber, then look no further than this delicious recipe! This is easy to make, and oh so very yummy! Grab these ingredients at your next trip to the commissary and see how fast it gets gobbled up at your house! I can guarantee this will not last long at all!
