Granola Bowls

While we love a bowl of yogurt and fruit, adding granola is a HUGE step up from that. Which is why I ALWAYS (and I mean it – ALWAYS!) keep a bag or two of homemade granola in my freezer. We just scoop some out (right from the freezer) on top of our fruit and yogurt and wa-la – best thing ever!

I know what you’re thinking. What kind of granola do you keep in your freezer? I’m so glad you asked! I normally rotate between my Maple Pecan Granola and for you chocolate lovers, my Healthy Chocolate Granola. Both are SO delicious, so why not make them both? YES please.

Both yogurt with granola bowls in this post include fruit, which is why I am a regular shopper (via Instacart!) so that I can keep seasonal berries stocked and ready to go.

However, if you can’t find nice produce in the off-season, I recommend keeping frozen berries and just nuking them for a minute (or less!) before adding the other toppings. 10/10 yummy!

Ingredients for Bowls #1

  • Greek Yogurt – Mike loves just plain vanilla yogurt, but I tend to prefer the fruit flavored ones most. Gimme the cherry, blueberry, raspberry, and peach!
  • Granola – The Maple Pecan Granola is a pretty large batch. But it’s easy to cut in half by decreasing the serving size directly in the recipe card.
  • Fruit – All the berries ALL the time! 😀
  • Honey – Adds a little touch of extra sweetness, and is OH SO GOOD.

How to make Yogurt and Granola Bowls?

  1. Make your homemade granola ahead of time and store in the freezer. OR buy a version of granola that you like.
  2. Clean fruit. I normally rinse my berries and pat dry with a paper towel. They’ll stay fresher if they aren’t soaked in water.
  3. Assemble bowls. Add the Greek Yogurt to a bowl. Top with fresh berries and yogurt. Then add a little drizzle of honey or chia seeds (or other toppings of your choice).

Recipe FAQs

Is granola good with yogurt?

Absolutely YES. The crunch of the granola is the perfect topper for creamy yogurt.

What yogurt is best to eat with granola?

We only buy Greek yogurt to go with our granola because of the added protein and less sugar than non-Greek versions. Stay away from added sugar, if possible. Other benefits include improved gut health and a boost in metabolism.

Is yogurt and granola healthy for breakfast?

To keep your yogurt and granola a healthy choice for breakfast, make sure you choose low-fat yogurt and granola with the least amount of added sugar — and stick to suggested serving sizes.

How many calories does yogurt with granola have?

The calories in yogurt varies by brand and type. My homemade granola varies as well. It’s best to calculate this before eating, especially if you are watching calorie intake.

Ingredients for Bowls #2

  • Greek Yogurt – I used blueberry yogurt in the photos below. One of my favorites!
  • Granola – We love some chocolate granola, and I highly recommend it! Love the dark chocolate chips in it.
  • Fruit – Plump blueberries and banana slices for the win!
  • Chia Seeds – Adds a little texture and extra health factor to these bowls.

We absolutely love enjoying our fruit, yogurt, and granola bowls. They make a great breakfast, but we also will occasionally eat them for dinner aside a piece of avocado toast.

A Fruit and Yogurt Bar (for events)

If you are hosting a morning shower of any kind (baby or wedding), these also make an impressive thing to serve. Call it a “fruit and yogurt” bar. We did very thing for my daughter-in-law’s wedding shower and it was a huge hit!

  • A tray of berries (or other fruit)
  • A few bowls of various Greek yogurts
  • Bowls of homemade granola
  • A small jar of honey
  • Little bowls of other toppings like chia seeds, chopped nuts, other types of chocolates and so on.
