Here are a Few Ways to Eat Granola
Granola is a nutritious, wholesome option for breakfast or a quick snack when you’re on-the-go. It’s loaded with protein, fiber and useful micronutrients that are great for your overall wellness. It’s also really versatile. Not only can you customize granola to include exactly what you want, but you can also sprinkle it into various meals and snacks that you might already eat on a daily basis.
Are you searching for new ways to use granola? Here are different ways to incorporate eating granola in your everyday diet.
1. Create Your Own Yogurt Parfait
One of the best ways to eat granola is by turning it into a delicious and refreshing parfait. Perfect for a midday snack or a breakfast at your office desk, the best parfaits include layers of:
- Fresh or freeze dried fruit
For a little extra zip, you can also drizzle honey over the top of the parfait, or mix it into the yogurt.
2. Mix it Into Baked Goods
Thinking about making a loaf of bread? Want to make some fresh muffins for the family on a Sunday morning? Mix your favorite granola into the batter before putting it in a bread pan or muffin tin. This is a simple way to add a different layer of flavor and texture to your treats.
3. Make Homemade Granola Bars
Want to turn chunks of granola into convenient granola bars? Grab your favorite nut butter, honey and chocolate chips. Mix together in a bowl, then transfer to a 9x9-inch baking pan.
Press the mixture into the pan and let it refrigerate overnight. In the morning, cut the mixture into granola bars and enjoy!
4. Add Crunch to a Bowl of Cereal
Are you a fan of cereals, but find yourself bored with the same old bowl of whole grains? Bring your favorite breakfast to life with a ½ cup of granola. Granola can also be its own cereal, just add milk and enjoy. For a boost of nutrients, add nuts, seeds and freeze-dried fruit.
5. Create Protein Bites
If you have packs of granola taking stock in your pantry, use them to create your own protein bites with granola, peanut butter, honey and chocolate chips. Put all the contents together in a bowl and mix. The consistency might be messy, but the taste makes it completely worth it.
6. Grab a Handful of Granola
Granola doesn’t have to be mixed into something to become a delicious snack. It’s great on its own! Bring your bag of granola on-the-go for a pick me up after school, on the way to work or in the park while enjoying a picnic.
7. Use it in a Smoothie Bowl
Smoothie bowls are a fun way to consume your favorite blended beverage and then some. Here’s how to make it happen:
- Pour the contents of your favorite Sow Good freeze-dried smoothie into a blender.
- Add water or your favorite dairy or non-dairy milk. Add ice if desired.
- Blend until it reaches a smooth and creamy consistency.
- Pour the smoothie in a bowl, then add toppings like granola, fresh or freeze-dried fruit, nut butter or seeds for added crunch, texture and flavor.
