Yes, there is a banana under all that granola. ISN'T THIS THE FUNNEST BREAKFAST IDEA EVER?!? It's so fun, I went all rogue grammar on you. If your child reads this post, I apologize and no, funnest is not really a word. Some things, though, go beyond proper vocabulary.
I can't take credit for the idea; I got it from one of the people at The Green Room in Hendersonville, NC. It was on their menu I first saw this idea, and I actually told them I was going to steal it. I've been eager to make it and share it with you since I first saw it a couple months ago.
The concept is incredibly simple, but healthy and satisfying: a banana is split in half and then topped with Greek yogurt, granola, and fruit. If your sweet tooth is really amped up, add a drizzle of honey. I left mine plain. This is so good, and quick and easy to make. I hope it makes your mornings a little more fun!
Breakfast Banana Split
serves 1 breakfast
1 banana, split lengthwise
1/3 cup Greek yogurt
1/4 cup granola
1/4 cup fruit, chopped or left whole if small
On a small plate or inside a dish that can accommodate the length of the banana, place the banana. Top it with the yogurt, granola, and fruit. If you wish, add a drizzle of honey. Enjoy!
- This recipe leaves a lot of room for customizing. Choose whatever flavor of yogurt you want. I prefer plain. You can also choose whatever granola and fruit. In my case, I only had blueberries, but I bet this would be great with just about any berry, stone fruit, dried fruit, etc.
- I used this recipe of granola sans fruit, but feel free to purchase if you don't want to make it!
