Use store bought or make your own Greek yogurt with my shortcut recipe!

Greek yogurt is super nutritious – it has high quality protein, probiotics for gut health, and calcium.

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you know that I love to create healthy recipes with Greek yogurt.

However, the way I enjoy Greek yogurt most often is in a simple Greek yogurt bowl with granola and fruit!

Fruit, granola, and yogurt bowls are a quick & easy breakfast that provide protein, dietary fiber, and other vitamins and minerals. Registered Dietitian approved!

For a similar breakfast, try my apple cinnamon Greek yogurt parfaits.

This yogurt bowl recipe calls for homemade granola, which is so much more delicious than store-bought.

I have a whole collection of homemade granola recipes for you to choose from. A few of my favorites include:

Granola takes about 45 minutes to prepare (mostly hands-off time), but each batch makes enough for several yogurt bowls and will last you a couple of weeks. It’s well worth the extra bit of effort!

Ingredients

Everything you need to make your own Greek yogurt breakfast bowls with homemade granola:

  • Plain Greek yogurt: From a nutritional perspective, Greek yogurt has about double the protein and half the carbohydrates than regular yogurt, making it a smart high-protein choice. Read more about the nutritional benefits of Greek yogurt, here. My preference is 2% or 5% fat content for Greek yogurt. It’s creamier and the fat helps keep you fuller for longer.
  • Fresh berries: You can put any fresh fruit you enjoy on top of your granola yogurt bowl. My favorite is a combination of fiber-rich blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries! I also LOVE to use cinnamon stewed apples during the fall 😊
  • Honey: Honey + Greek yogurt taste so good together! A drizzle of honey cuts the tanginess of the yogurt.

Homemade granola ingredients

Everything you need to make my maple pecan granola:

  • Old fashioned rolled oats: Rolled oats are the best oats to use for granola – not quick or steel cut.
  • Rice crisp cereal: Rice crisp cereal has a crispy, crunchy texture that is perfect for granola. You’ll also find this ingredient in my popular cinnamon crunch granola.
  • Pecans: Pecans are a slightly sweet nut that taste amazing paired with maple syrup. They have several nutritional benefits, including heart-healthy unsaturated fatty acids and dietary fiber.
  • Maple syrup: Maple syrup sweetens granola recipes while helping to bind the ingredients together since it is a sticky liquid.
  • Chia seeds: Chia seeds are incredibly nutritious! They provide plant-based protein, fiber, healthy fats, and micronutrients.
  • Coconut oil: Coconut oil my favorite oil to make granola with because it has a pleasant coconut flavor. Just 1/4 cup is all you need.
  • Cinnamon: Cinnamon, pecans, and maple syrup are a fantastic flavor pairing.
  • Vanilla extract: Vanilla extract enhances the flavors of this granola.
  • Salt: Similar to vanilla extract, salt enhances the flavors in this granola and lends just a hint of salty-sweet flavor.

Storage

Granola yogurt bowls are best eaten right after they are prepared.

The granola and fruit tend to get soggy when sitting in the yogurt for too long, especially in the fridge.

Store the different components separately (fruit, yogurt, and granola) for best results.

Since these bowls are so quick to assemble, you can easily prepare them in the morning in 5 minutes or less!

How long does homemade granola last?

Homemade granola will last for up to two weeks on the countertop in an airtight container. If you keep it in your fridge, it will last about 3 weeks!

Can you freeze granola? 

Yes, you can freeze homemade granola!

Put granola in an airtight container with as little air as possible, such as in a silicone baggie. Freeze for up to 3 months.

Eat it straight from the freezer, or let it sit out at room temperature overnight to use.
