There’s something just so darn enjoyable about the mingling of creamy and tart yogurt with crunchy sweet granola that gets me excited!

Most days lately granola and thick, rich FAGE Total 5% has been our breakfast. Somedays, it is even our after-school and after-work snack while dinner is being prepared. And, then there are those other days when we are not in the mood for ice cream (yes, those days do exist in our home) and we turn to a bowl of granola and FAGE yogurt for our dessert as well!

Ever since I made and shared this Cinnamon Cardamom Orange Granola, I’ve been on a quest to enjoy the clumpiest of clumpy granolas.

Well, recently I stumbled on several granola recipes on the interwebs that mentioned using a frothed or well beaten egg white. While I used a gently whisked egg white in that batch of Cinnamon Cardamom Orange Granola, I figured I’d froth up an egg white and fold it in to this Apple Walnut Granola.

I also opted to go with the no-stir method and not stir or mess with the baked granola until it was completely cool. And, the combo of that frothed egg white and not stirring the granola resulted in some of the chunkiest, clumpiest granola I had come across!

The night I baked this Apple Walnut Granola, my daughter insisted we enjoy it for dessert as she just couldn’t wait until breakfast time. As we had a bunch of fruit hanging out in our fridge, we set out a yogurt, fruit and granola bar.

FAGE Total 5% is so thick and creamy, it was the perfect accompaniment to this clumpy, crunchy Apple Walnut Granola. As we had a bunch of leftover washed and cut fruit, we decided to enjoy this very same yogurt, fruit and granola bar for breakfast as well!

This ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg spiced Apple Walnut Granola makes for a delicious better-for-us, breakfast, snack or even dessert when paired with some thick and creamy FAGE Total 5% Greek Yogurt and fruit.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ginger
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup freeze dried apple chips
  • ¼ cup coconut oil

  • 1 egg white

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Add oats, salt, walnuts, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon and apple chips to a bowl and mix well.
  • In another microwave safe bowl, add in the coconut oil and microwave it about 10 seconds or so until it is melted. Then, mix melted coconut oil with the maple syrup and whisk until well blended.
  • Then pour the maple/coconut oil mix into the oats and coat oat mix well.
  • In another bowl, froth the egg white either by hand or, using a milk frothier like I did.
  • Fold in the frothed egg white into the apple walnut oats mix and gently mix it in.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment and spread apple walnut mix onto it and spread out into a ¼ to ½ inch layer.

    I get excited about food too! A little too much sometimes, lol. I’ve never tried this brand of yogurt before and will have to look out for next time I’m in the grocery. I’ve been going for more whole milk and higher fat content yogurts lately cause I enjoy their creaminess. This one looks super good and thick and love the pairing with granola. Those textures get me every time. It’s a breakfast or snack hubby and I enjoy on the regular and love with a drizzle of maple syrup. Cute name too – ‘clumpy’ 😉 Happy weekend, my friend! XOXO

    Pick me, pick me! Yogurt, fruit and granola is one of my favorite simple breakfasts — and let’s be honest, I’ll eat granola by the handful all day long… Your clumpy granola is right in my wheelhouse — love the apple chips!

    What a great way to start your morning and to use all the yummy apples that are in season right now. Thanks for sharing!

  13. marcie says:

    I love big clusters of granola and yours looks amazing! Love the apple spice flavors too — they’re so perfect for fall!

    Fage is my favorite Greek yogurt — it’s the creamiest and tastes the closest to the fresh Greek yogurt when I had in Greece years ago. These parfaits look so delicious!

    I can see this being a huge hit around here. Especially on the weekends when I’ve got a crowd for breakfast before we’re off to whichever outing or parade. And we love FAGE as well, so that totally works. The egg white trick is new to me, but I’m ready to give it a try! Thanks, Shashi!

  26. Yes! Once I discovered that whisked egg white trick for yogurt, I haven’t gone back. It’s so good! And speaking of good, we’re huge fans of FAGE here, too. I don’t think I’ve ever made it for dessert, but that makes perfect sense. I often want something sweet after dinner, but I don’t want a full-on dessert. Yogurt + fruit or a bit of granola sounds like a great idea! Thanks for sharing, Shashi!

  27. What a great way to start your morning and to use all the yummy apples that are in season right now. Thanks for sharing!
