Homemade Baked Granola

Homemade Granola is so much better than the store-bought granola. When I found out how easy it is to make with oats, nuts, and seeds. I never considered buying it in a box again. It is also very inexpensive to make. Compare the cost of making versus purchasing it.

Raspberry Yogurt Cup
This recipe is so simple, we did not include the step by step or video instructions. We purchased 2 pints of fresh raspberries and cooked 1/2 of them down into a sauce. This allowed me to make the most of these delicious red berries. For this dish I mixed a little bit the sauce with some plain greek yogurt to add sweetness and color. Them sprinkled some homemade granola and added a a fresh berry on top.

Summer Fruit and Granola Bowl
An easy way to pull together a last minute breakfast. All you need are some pre cut canteloupe melon chunks and a handfull or your favoriite berries. We used raspberries and blueberries but strawberries or blackberries would work just as well. Actually I think the blackberry and the cantaloupe would compliment each other nicely. You can use your favorite yogurt, I used plain greek because it has no added sugar. For sweetness beyond the fruit and granola you can add a little local honey.
