Yogurt Granola Bowl

Yogurt Granola Bowl

Whoever said ‘breakfast is the most important meal of the day’ is probably one of the most annoying people on this earth… and yet since getting to uni I do kinda see their point. I never used to eat breakfast, not sure if it’s because I didn’t have the time or I just didn’t feel hungry but I just wasn’t that kinda person. However one of the side effects of being catered in college is that we have to pay for breakfasts even if we don’t eat them so wahey I’ve become a breakfast person!

So now I’m back home and get super hungry at about 8:15 every morning I thought I’d branch out and explore some things to make for breakfast. I’ve also just recently discovered the wonder that is Greek yogurt and honey (check me out coming across all this really normal stuff for the first time!) and so hey presto – Add a couple of oaty bites and a fruit compote to a bowl of honey and yogurt and Bob’s your uncle!

Recipe

Serves 1

Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Small banana
  • 100g Frozen berries
  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • ¼ tsp Cinnamon

For the Granola Chunks

  • 5 ml Vegetable oil
  • 5g Honey
  • 5g Brown sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 50g Porridge oats
  • 1 tbsp Extra flavourings if wanted (chopped nuts, dried fruit, chocolate chunks etc)

Method

  1. Begin by making the oat clusters. Pre-heat the oven to 180˚C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Add the oil, honey, sugar and salt to a bowl. Whisk to combine and then add the oats and any added flavourings. Stir again to combine.
  3. Spoon the granola onto the lined baking tray in clumps. Bake for 15-20 minutes until crisp. Leave to cool to one side until needed.
  4. Now make the compote. Put the frozen berries, honey and cinnamon into a small pan over a medium heat. Gently heat the mixture through until the berries are soft and juicy, then set aside to cool.
  5. When ready start assembling the bowl. Put a few tbsp of yogurt into one side of the bowl. Put a couple of granola clusters into another ¼ of the bowl and fill in the final section with the berry compote.
  6. Slice the banana and arrange the slices on top. Drizzle the bowl with a little honey and then sprinkle with any extra nuts and dried fruit you want!
