Maca-Cinnamon Granola 
This recipe is essentially a variation on my gingerbread granola recipe, slightly different ingredients but the same procedure. 
3 cups oats 
1/2 - 3/4 cup honey, brown rice syrup or maple syrup, depending on preference, of a combination of all three. 
1/4 - 1/2 cup nuts (I used almost slivers)
1/4 cup golden raisins, or any other dried fruit 
1+ tbsp cinnamon 
1-2 tbsp maca powder 
Preheat oven to 300F
In a large bowl, mix all ingredients except dried fruit until all the oats are well coated. There should be enough syrup to coat the oats lightly but completely. You don’t want any of the oats to not have any syrup on them. If you think there is too much syrup, just add another handful of oats. If it looks too dry or you see the white, in coated oats, just add more syrup. 
Spread the oats out on a lined baking sheet. 
Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Toss the granola around and bake for another 15, add the dried fruit and toss again.
Bake for another 5-10 minutes (or take out if it’s starting to burn after the first 30, every oven is different). 
It’s hard to know exactly when the granola is done because it won’t be crunchy until it is cooled. If you’re unsure, just take it out, let it cool but leave the oven on. If it cools and it’s crunchy enough for you, you’re done. If not, put it back in the oven for a few more minutes. 
If you want big clusters of granola, don’t stir it once you’ve taken it out of the oven to cool. Just let it sit. If you don’t like granola clusters like that, stir it a little as it cools. 
Once your granola is cooled, break it up and store it in an airtight container.

It’s okay to eat over your daily intake goal. Hell, it’s okay to triple it!!

But don’t eat less the next day.

Your body CAN handle extra calories. It will keep your metabolism up and firing.

So don’t worry. You had your big day, now go back to eating clean and healthy and ENOUGH like you usually do.

You are a star.

"Do me a favour, this is going to sound weird but close your eyes, take in a breath, open your eyes and exhale.
How lucky are we to be able to do that?
You breathed and you saw and you experienced. We can only do that for a limited time so let’s do what we can. 😊"

It’s love.
I respect fit runners and I respect overweight runners. I respect fast runners and I respect slow runners. I respect people who run 5 miles and I respect people who run 25 miles. I respect people who run in group and I respect solo runners. I respect shirtless runners and I respect fully clothed runners. I respect walkers, joggers, and sprinters. I respect female runners and I respect male runners. I respect young runners and I respect old runners. I respect winter, spring, summer, fall runners. My point is this: the first step out the front door is the hardest, and I respect anyone who takes it.
