I spent a long time thinking about the first recipe that would appear on my blog, and this one kept coming back to the top of my list. So, just like we would start any day with breakfast, let's launch this page with one of my favorite breakfast items!
I started making my own granola when I discovered wheat products hidden in many conventional, store-bought granolas (I'm not gluten-free, but I cook for someone who is). As I read more and more labels, I also realized that store-bought granolas are loaded with added sugars that just aren't necessary to make a great-tasting granola.
I love pairing this versatile granola simply with Greek yogurt and fruit for breakfast, or even as a snack. You can add any combination of fresh fruits you like to boost the nutritional value - whole fruits are great sources of antioxidants and fiber. Another serving option that I love, especially in the fall and winter, is to put this granola on top of cooked, mashed sweet potatoes. It's a hearty and warming breakfast during the colder months. And in the summer months, this granola brightens up fresh fruit and yogurt with with its sunny yellow color!
