Do It Yourself Granola

June 28, 2013 2 min read

Workout daily? Booming metabolism? Hungry all the time? This week I found myself hungry at work all the time. I am trying to get my six-pack for the Fourth of July so I am working out daily and my metabolism is on overdrive. I try to bring my own snacks to work but this week my daily banana just wasn't cutting it. I love granola and would love to snack on that but it seems the granola market is filled with artificial sweeteners and natural flavors that are anything but natural. I decided to take matters into my own hands and make my own granola that I could snack on all day at work and not feel guilty. Since abs are made in the kitchen it just makes sense I make my own healthy granola. I wanted to use nuts in my granola because they are a good source of fat. I chose Almonds and Pepitas also known as pumpkin seeds. Why Almonds? Almonds are a healthy snack that deliver high energy in small servings. They have 21% protein content and are also high in fiber. Why Pepitas? Pepitas boost your intake of Iron, Zinc, Copper and Phosphorus. One ounce of Pepitas has 8.5 grams of protein in it. I also am completely addicted to Dates right now so I added them as well. Why Dates? Dates are rich in dietary fiber, protein and vitamins such as A, B and C. Dates are natural energy boosters and low in calories so they make the perfect addition to this granola.   DIY (Do It Yourself) Granola What you'll need: 1 1/2 Cups of Oats (gluten free if possible) 1/2 Cup of Raw Almonds 1/2 Cup of Raw Pepitas (pumpkin seeds) 1 Cup of Dates (cut into thirds) 1/4 Cup of Maple Syrup 2 Tbsp. Coconut Oil 2 Tbsp. of Cinnamon 1 Pinch of Salt   Preheat the oven at 350 degrees. Mix dry ingredients first then add wet ingredients. Mix well with your hands or a spoon. Place in a 8x8 pan or a similar size pan. Spray pan with Coconut Oil. Bake for 35 minutes, stir the mixture once during baking.   Enjoy in the morning for breakfast, or as a snack at work.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
