One of the best things about my mornings, everyday (hello, creature of habit), is my yogurt and granola. Take 1/2 cup fat free yogurt (I prefer plain), 1 TBSP granola, and your choice of fruit (berries are my pref, but banana will do), and to me, you have a perfect everyday breakfast. I love it! It’s simple, it’s light, and it’s delicious.
Granola can be expensive. This recipe, adapted (slightly) from Everyday Food, makes enough granola for the whole family to enjoy for a few weeks. It’s inexpensive, quick to prepare (no special ingredients necessary), and to my mind, adds the same crunch you’d get from Bear Naked or any other granola, to your breakfast. Enjoy!
