September 29, 2014 | By | Comments (0)

On-the-go lifestyles require on-the-go sustenance. Thanks to delicious taste, satisfying crunch, and 10 grams of protein per ½ cup, Nature Valley™ Protein Granola goes beyond breakfast. It is a perfect fuel for parents AND kids on sports field sidelines, during after-school study sessions, backstage at theater rehearsal, while taxiing to-and-fro, and for any other “must eat now!” situation.

Tasty solo, Nature Valley™ Protein Granola gets major flavor oomph when paired with other snack time faves.  Here are a few ideas to get you started:

1. Cut apple wedges, spread with peanut butter and roll in Oats ‘n Dark Chocolate Protein Granola.

2. Make a batch of Tossed Easy Microwave Cranberry Almond Snack Mix and pack in snack-size baggies.

3. Is the bunch of bananas on the counter more brown than yellow? Freeze a pan of sure to please Granola PB Banana Pops to enjoy as an after dinner treat.

Speaking of treats, add Nature Valley™ Protein Granola to dessert recipes to add a major flavor factor. Even the most novice cook can master No-Bake Dark Chocolate Granola Cookies or No-Bake Granola Jam Thumbprint Cookies!
