Nutty Maple Granola Yogurt Bowls Brunch Recipe
Life is good when there is pretty food sitting in front of you. That’s right, I like pretty food. Hence the reason I’m a food photographer and love to plate up delicious dishes that are bursting with color. That’s why I chose to make these beautiful Nutty Maple Granola Yogurt Bowls. Because there are so many types of fruit in season right now, and I’m a big fan of fruit for breakfast, these breakfast bowls just came together naturally. Healthy blueberries, peaches, strawberries, melons…and the list goes on. Anything can go in these breakfast bowls, as long as it’s pretty!
My other favorite thing about these bowls is the crunchy, nutty, cinnamon, and maple granola. It only takes a few minutes to whip up, then it’s slow-roasted in the oven until browned and crisp. It tastes so good! You can’t resist it when paired with the smooth, silky yogurt, juicy fruits, plus a smattering of fresh thyme and a drizzle of honey. This brunch recipe is fit for a queen or king!
Speaking of king, even my husband enjoys these bowls. He’s not much of a granola-yogurt-fruit breakfast bowl guy. He usually prefers a sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich, but he really likes eating these Nutty Maple Granola Yogurt Bowls! If he likes it, I know you will too.
Breakfast doesn’t get easier, or more beautiful, than this. Cheers!
