I realize that yogurt with granola, berries, and honey isn’t a revolutionary recipe idea, but after eating it for breakfast for over a month now, I thought it was worth sharing. Sometimes it’s the simplest things that are the most delicious and wonderful. Right? We may just need a little reminder or inspiration to make them.

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

Yogurt with granola and berries has been a go-to of mine for a while. When I go out for breakfast or brunch and want to avoid overindulging on eggs Benedict or French toast, I will order some combination of yogurt, granola, and berries. I love the flavor, and it always fills me up. I also feel good about myself after eating it. To me, that’s a triple-win!

The concept for this recipe is simple, but I thought I’d share a few tips and ideas that make it especially good. I’m also going to give you the details on some of the ingredients and products that I love to use.

Bonus Idea: Make if for a crowd with this amazing Yogurt Parfait and Granola Bar. It’s one of my favorite ways to entertain for breakfast or brunch.

Ingredients

1. Bowl: Okay, stick with me on this one. The bowl you use for this recipe is important. I have this lovely set of dishware, and this low wide bowl is my favorite. I LOVE it! (So much so that I use it for a lot of my meals. It’s large, and the curved sides are great for keeping everything contained.)

2. Yogurt: My yogurt of choice is siggi’s. It’s an Icelandic skyr yogurt. I’m not sure what that means, but it has less sugar and more protein than most yogurts. Vanilla and Strawberry & Rhubarb are my two favorite flavors.

Sidenote: According to Wikipedia, “Skyr is an Icelandic cultured dairy product. It has the consistency of Greek yogurt but a milder flavor. … (It’s not as sour and tart.) … Skyr has been a part of the Icelandic cuisine for centuries.”

3. Granola: Ultimately, homemade is best. I recommend my fabulous granola recipe. Lately, however, I’ve been buying granola. I especially like Granola Factory’s Honey Pecan. It’s available in original and organic. I alternate between the two based on what’s available.

4. Berries: My standard is chopped strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries. I sometimes add raspberries if I have them. (Unfortunately, raspberries seem to get moldy the day after I bring them home, so for the most part, I’ve stopped buying them.)

5. Honey: I recommend finding honey that is local to you. I’ve heard that eating local honey might help with seasonal allergies, but don’t hold me to that. If you’re local to Pittsburgh, you might want to get your honey from Pisarcik Flower Farm as I do. Their honey is wonderful! (Pisarcik Flower Farm is the place where I get a lot of my flowers.)

I also need to give a little shout-out to this handy and adorable honey dipper. It’s designed to fit onto a regular mouth mason jar. It works perfectly especially for how I purchase my honey.

How to Make

Again, this is a straightforward process. Of course, you’re welcome to do whatever works for you, but here’s my method. (I’ve also included a full printable recipe card at the end of the post with measurements and steps.)

1. Add the yogurt to your bowl. I like to spread the yogurt out a bit so that it’s in a flat and thick layer.

2. Top with berries. Sprinkle the berries evenly over the yogurt.

3. Drizzle the honey. I like to drizzle the honey over the berries before adding the granola.

4. Sprinkle on the granola. Add as much granola as you’d like. I try to stick to the recommended serving size, which is 1/4 cup, but some days I’m more generous with myself. (The granola is just so good!)

5. Garnish. I don’t do this when I’m preparing a bowl for myself, but if you’re making this recipe to serve company, a sprig of mint would be the perfect finishing touch. It adds color and aids digestion!

And that’s it, my friends. Your Yogurt with Granola, Berries, and Honey is ready to be served.

  1. thanks for the ideas. Really granola yogurt and honey is a cool combination. I love making my own granola. Can be in oven or pot. But unfortunately I had to give it up because my doctor forbade me gluten. Now, for breakfast, you can only have rice porridge or all the damn eggs, but without bread or tortillas.

  2. This hits all the buttons for me! texture and not too sweet, tart, fresh! LOVE! Would you mind sharing your homemade granola recipe? I feel like I could control the sugar if I made it myself. The link seems to be missing from this post where you mention it. Thank you! You share wonderful creative things! I always expectantly open your emails- knowing that I’ll glean something great! And now I find that you are a Pittsburgher too! I’m far away in Houston, TX now, but you bring me great things from home so often. I love your taste:-) <3

  3. With all the yummy berries right now, I am loving this each morning too. I stopped at a road side stand recently and got some fresh peaches which took this dish to another level. There is nothing better than fresh peaches in the summer! Thanks Michael!! I enjoy your blog so much

  4. This is a simple and quick breakfast. You got me at granola and honey. And I just bought some pasta dishes that will work perfect. They have a yogurt shop here in Louisiana that makes a recipe like this except their yogurt is frozen and quite tart. The name of the recipe is “The Humphrey.” They top with granola, honey and mixed berries plus grapes and sliced banana. The granola and honey is made locally here too. Thank you for this recipe!!

  5. ALL of your recipes are SO good and this one is no exception!!! Thank you so much for such a delightful blog and all of your lovely inspiration! It is the highlight of my day to receive your email updates from IBC!!!

  7. Raspberries – you can avoid them going mouldy by freezing them (on a flat tray) as soon as you get them home. When you want them for breakfast, just take out a few and defrost overnight…. hey presto! I am a raspberry fan, and I know what you mean about going mouldy….. they have a v. short shelf life!

    1. Great tip! I’m not a big fan of frozen raspberries when I want fresh. Haha. I’m too picky. I’ll just stick to blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries. Thanks for the tip though!

      xo Michael

  8. Hi Michael,
    I have read your blog here and there in the past, but lately, since we have more time, I started really reading your posts, and going back to your older posts in search of where you were and how far you have come, a little history of you and I was hooked. I really love your new home and all that you have done, and your recipes: YUM!! I’m going to give the granola a try, looks very good and healthy!! And as I scrolled down quickly I’m excited to see your working on your office space and then I see a delicious coffee cake. I will be looking forward to reading more in the future on all the great recipes and how you put your rooms together. You really have a wonderful style…..thank you for sharing your life and I hope your time off was restful and inspiring. Take care, many blessings……Joanie

  9. Siggi’s is my favorite and I am ordering that cute honey wand. Have you tried rinsing your raspberries in a diluted vinegar wash when you bring them home? Soak one quart of berries in 1/2 cup white vinegar and two cups cold water for five minutes. Rinse well In a colander under cold water. Lay them out on a paper towel to dry. Store in the fridge in a sealed container lined with dry paper towel leaving the lid open a little to let moisture out. This kills the mold spores on the berries. This works for me! Google it!

    1. Gail, thank you! I was nodding my head in agreement with Michael’s comment about moldy raspberries and wishing someone had a solution. And here you’ve provided it. I will definitely try it out as I’ve written off raspberries myself and miss them.
