I love supporting local businesses so I couldn't resist when I found this amazing homemade granola this weekend. It's made with oats, pecans, almonds, dried apricots, dried cranberries, brown sugar, honey, canola oil, vanilla extract, cinnamon and a pinch of salt. The are no preservatives or additives, just natural goodness.
This breakfast bowl with yogurt, fresh fruit and granola is SO fast to prepare and it is so delicious AND nutritious. I used plain Greek yogurt but you can use any flavour of yogurt of your choice. My preference is always to buy plain Balkan or Greek yogurt, I love the tangy taste of natural yogurt and I don't like all the added sweeteners in other yogurt. Also when you add fruit and nuts to yogurt they have their own sweetness and flavour so you don't need the added sugar or artificial sweeteners found in flavoured yogurt.
This morning I used Natasha's Homemade Granola but you can use a commercially prepared granola or even make your own homemade granola! Any fresh fruit will do, whatever fruit that is fresh and on sale is your best bet! Strawberries, kiwi, blueberries, bananas, raspberries.... The choice is yours! This combo delivers two servings of fruit, one serving of dairy and one serving of nuts. Adding fresh fruit ups your fiber intake for the day and who doesn't love fresh fruit?
- 1/2 cup plain Greek or Balkan yogurt
- 1/2 banana sliced
- 1 kiwi sliced
- tbsp granola
1. Spoon yogurt into bowl and place sliced fruit and granola on top
That's it! Enjoy!
Have a great food and Love Good Food ❤️
