Yogurt with Granola, Berries, and Honey
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.
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.
My Go-To Ingredients for Yogurt with Granola:
1. Bowl: Okay, stick with me on this one. I think 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 have a fabulous recipe here. 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. You can find it HERE.
How to Assemble Yogurt with Granola:
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.
I’m not exactly sure what it is about this breakfast dish that I like so much, but I find it a great way to start the day. It has lots of my favorite things and flavors. Plus, it fits into my breakfast calorie guidelines but is so satisfying.
Yogurt with Granola Strawberry Rhubarb Variation:
And if you liked this idea, I created a similar yogurt and granola breakfast recipe using my strawberry rhubarb pie filing recipe! It’s the same process, I just substituted the berries for pie filling. Here’s how that looks.
While it is more of a “treat”, it’s a really delicious combination! You can get my recipe for Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Filling HERE if you’d like to try out this variation.
Here are a few more of my favorite breakfast ideas:
- Spinach Bacon Swiss Quiche
- Baked Egg Muffins
- Funfetti Pancakes
- Breakfast Pies
- Easy Overnight Breakfast Casserole
- Berry Stuffed French Toast
If you’ve never tried this combination, give it a whirl and let me know what you think. Have fun with different flavors of yogurt and granola and switch up your fruit for something new every day, if that’s your preference. Find what YOU love!
