Healthy Granola

Healthy Granola made with rolled oats and wheat germ.Wheat germ is the nutrition containing center part of the wheat kernel which has many health benefits.It is supposed to contain anti aging properties and can boost the immune system to prevent various diseases.Wheat germ also has fiber in abundance and some proteins as well.

I saw the recipe in a Magazine I was reading in my doctor’s office.I immediately clicked the image of the recipe in my phone.After reading the health benefits of wheat germ now I am using them regularly in our diet.As the family loves granola they liked this home made one too and enjoyed eating it as a healthy snack.

Always remember to store wheat germ in a closed air tight container in refrigerator after opening.As it might get spoiled if it comes in contact with heat,humidity and air.This recipe is for third week of May month CCChallenge.
