Lusciously creamy FAGE Total 5% Greek yogurt is the star of FIVE yogurt breakfast bowls that are sure to help you stick to your New Year’s health goals!
I usually kick off a New Year with a new way to enjoy black eyed peas and greens, a new planner and a new breakfast treat. As much as I love a new breakfast treat, FAGE is still my go-to breakfast.
If you are a FAGE fan, then I bet you understand why it’s so hard to walk away from a super quick and easy, tried and re-tested, nutritious, breakfast of creamy, luscious, FAGE Total 5% Greek yogurt, crunchy granola and honey – right?
If you’ve been piddling around my blog in the past, then you know FAGE Total 5% Greek yogurt is a favorite with my daughter and I. Most times, I enjoy FAGE Total 5% Greek yogurt with Apple Walnut Granola or this Cranberry Coconut Granola. I also use it in baked treats and late night quick eats like these Pumpkin Greek Yogurt Pancakes.
My daughter, on the other hand, likes to add a dollop of FAGE Total 5% Greek yogurt to her breakfast burritos or enjoy a savory yogurt breakfast bowl – quite similar to the raita my mom usually serves to balance off a super spicy meal. Isn’t it wonderful how versatile FAGE Total 5% Greek yogurt can be?
All natural, FAGE Total 5% Greek yogurt is made with only milk and live active yogurt cultures, is protein-rich, contains no added sugar (contains only naturally occurring milk sugar) and is Non-GMO Project Verified. And, I love it because of its distinctive rich, creamy and delicious taste – but wait, I already said that a few paragraphs ago!
Anyhoot… Getting back to today’s post…
Today, I have five of our favorite, nutritious, breakfast bowls using FAGE Total 5% Greek yogurt. I’m hoping these breakfast bowls help keep any New Year’s health goals you might have made, healthier and easier!
There is this mix of crunchy, flavor-packed Cranberry Coconut Granola, lusciously creamy FAGE Total 5% Greek yogurt, and honey…
Some Days, I have leftover roasted butternut squash from the previous night. So, I heat it up the next morning, toss the butternut squash with a pinch of two of cinnamon and cardamom, and add it to some FAGE Total 5% Greek yogurt, top it with some sunflower seeds and maple syrup.
Then there are times, I whip up some FAGE Total 5% Greek yogurt with a bit of maple syrup and cinnamon, add in some unsweetened applesauce and toss in some pecans for an almost-apple-pie like yogurt breakfast bowl like experience!
Staying with the maple-cinnamon spiked FAGE Total 5% Greek yogurt, I’ve also added a bunch of fruits like mangoes, kiwi and raspberries, like in this bowl, to enjoy for breakfast…
And then, some other days, I go the savory route (like my daughter enjoys) and whip up a savory yogurt breakfast bowl with lightly salted FAGE Total 5% Greek yogurt that is topped with spiced chickpeas, avocados, and cashews.
So, please do tell me…
What would be your favorite yogurt breakfast bowl with FAGE Total 5% Greek Yogurt?
The beauty of FAGE Total 5% Greek yogurt Is that it is so versatile and jives just as well with sweet fruits and granola as it does with spiced chickpeas and cucumbers. And, with that said, what would be your favorite yogurt bowl creation?
And, I am looking for inspiration so please do tell me something new you embarked on this January?
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- ½ cup maple syrup
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ tsp almond extract
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 ½ cups rolled oats
- ½ cup dried cranberries
- ½ cup shredded unsweetened coconut
- 1 egg white whisked well
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Place coconut oil and maple syrup in a microwave safe dish and microwave on 10-15 seconds intervals until coconut oil is melted (took me 2 x 15 seconds)
Then add in vanilla extract, almond extract, salt, cinnamon and mix well.
Then add in the rolled oats, cranberries and coconut and mix to coat dry ingredients with wet ingredients.
Finally fold in the well whisked egg and mix until it is incorporated.
Line a baking tray with parchment or silpat and spread out cranberry coconut oat mix onto baking tray.
Bake for 32-37 minutes at 325 degrees.
Remove from oven and set aside until it is completely cool. When it is completely cool, you will have the clumpiest granola. So clumpy that you might have to break the large pieces apart!
Enjoy granola with FAGE Total 5% Greek Yogurt and honey or maple syrup!
