Grrr...I had this post all typed and ready to go, but when I came on here to post it, I somehow deleted it. Annoying. ANYWAY! This is my second recipe in row from Cookin'Canuck. I noticed this after finding the Poached Egg on Toast recipe below. As soon as I saw the pictures, I had to make it. I'm so glad I did...it was SO good. And crazy easy.
I did change some things around though. The first was the use of Agave Nectar. It took awhile, and I had help, but I finally located it at my local Publix. I (and the woman who helped me find it) just looked at it, both thinking 'Huh...looks a lot like really expensive honey'. So I didn't buy it. Instead I just used honey, and it was wonderful.
I also used regular Vanilla Yogurt instead of Greek yogurt. I tried the Greek stuff ONCE. It was one of the most vile things I have ever put in my mouth. It was nowhere near it's expiration date, but maybe I just got a bad batch. My mother loves it, swears it's wonderful, but I'm scared to try it again. The stuff I had was absolutely disgusting.
This was also the first time I've ever purchased loose granola, and let me just say, I will ALWAYS have some in the house from now on. I love it! I went with Bear Naked's Banana Nut (the banana and the blueberries were great together), and it added a so much flavor. I can't wait to try some of the others.
That's what I love about a breakfast such as this...it's simple, fast, and so versatile. Mix it up with various combinations of fruits, yogurt and granola flavors. Plus this kids will love it, especially if you let them put it together themselves. Jesse inhaled his!
