Warm Granola Breakfast Bowl is the perfect cozy start to any morning. Healthy oats, sweet, natural maple syrup and toasted almonds and coconut. These are the winter equivalent of a warm hug on a cold day.
At this time of year, I need breakfasts to be warm and cozy. And as lovely as it would be to have warm croissants and French toast every morning, that’s just not practical every day. Nor is it practical for my waistline or my wallet. So, I present to you our speedy solution. Warm granola breakfast bowl.
Here’s the deal with these. You don’t need to warm the granola because that would make it too soft. You just simply microwave your milk for about 30 seconds and pour it over the granola. Huzza! Lazy girl warm granola breakfast bowl.
Ok. But here’s the deal with these. Bake the granola on a Sunday. That’s your meal prep day, right? If you’re not sure how to meal plan effectively, then head on over to my post about meal planning 101.
So, you bake this granola on a Sunday, then all week you microwave or heat your milk in a pan and pour over the granola to soak in. But, this is where the simple beauty of this recipe lies. You then top the whole thing with some Greek yogurt and fruit of your choosing.
This ensemble of crunchy granola, warm milk and cool creamy yogurt topped with fruit and honey makes for the perfect winter breakfast set up. But let’s get real. This granola recipe is also the perfect light lunch, and snack… and sometimes, even, dinner.
