One of my favorite things to have for breakfast, or as an afternoon snack, is some Greek yogurt mixed with granola. This combo is delicious, and usually packs a pretty nutritious punch. Greek yogurt is a good source of calcium, and also boats a protein content that is usually twice as high as plain yogurt (depending on the brand). This makes it a great snack food! However, Greek yogurt does have a high fat content so I recommend searching for a fat-free version that you love!
Granola is great too. Granola has the ability to provide us with some much-needed dietary fiber, and also can be a good source of iron. The only down side is that granola from the grocery store can be so dang expensive. So today we’re going to share a recipe from The Hen Basket for some easy to make, delicious granola.
Peanut Butter Granola
4 tbsp. creamy peanut butter
4 tbsp. honey
½ tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups oats

- Spread mixture out onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.
- Let cool before eating.
