Things to eat with granola for breakfast?

I’m currently in love with granola and working out. I eat it several times a week with breakfast and every once in a while I eat it for a healthy snack. It’s the perfect easy granola recipe for yogurt, but there are plenty of ways to eat granola that do not involve yogurt.

What to eat with granola besides yogurt?

  • add a handful of granola to your cereal for an extra crunch
  • top your pancakes with fresh fruit and granola
  • add granola to your oatmeal
  • sprinkle some on your acai bowl
  • a little on your french toast goes a long way
