Almond Butter Granola by @UpsideDownPear

This past weekend wasn’t a very good yoga class. It was hard finding the time the week before to really practiced and it showed when it was my turn to lead. Even though the full moons past, the energy has just been weird overall still. I feel like everyone at work is crazy busy and tired, and so am I. Definitely going to have to find more time this week to practice. Even though I’m a bit discouraged, learning how to teach yoga is something that I really want so I’m just going to have to push through!

On a much lighter note, Bren and I went to see the musical Young Frankenstein put on by a community theater group. It was all sorts of fun and bawdy humor, and the cast was amazing! One of my coworkers was in the play, and he was in more dance scenes than I thought he was going to be in. He’s got a lot of talent and he’s only been a part of the theater for about a year!

Since I’m obviously tight on time, I decided to make a granola since I’ve been snacking rather than eating larger meals lately. I really wanted to add some almond butter and chocolate chips and then keep the rest of the granola simple. It’s not one of those crunchy granolas. There a softer crumbled texture which I really like.
