Hey y’all…it’s confession time. I hate to admit it – but I am not a fan of pumpkin. Ironically I love Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Latte – go figure. I know the importance of healthy eating, which brings me to this admission…I am not a fan of breakfast. I am just not one of those eager beavers who jumps out of bed in the morning who can’t wait to make a fabulous omelet. In my journey to a healthier me, I discovered that I love Fage 2% Greek Yogurt. The bonus is that it packs in 7 grams of protein and makes me feel full and satisfied.
I like to add crunch to my yogurt so, sometimes I add almonds, pecans or cereal to the top. I just discovered that pumpkin is a superfood, high in fiber and antioxidants and it’s good for your skin. I embarked to create a healthier granola that included pecans and pumpkin while eliminating hidden oils and fat.
Sesame seeds for added crunch and flavor. The seeds taste so wonderful after they are toasted in the oven.
Ready to bake in the oven…
Yum…baked and ready to eat.
I love this granola…the pumpkin and spice have great flavor. The honey gives just a little sweetness. The cranberries add just a pinch of tartness. And I love the pecan flavor after they are toasted in the baking process.
What do you put on top of your yogurt?
