When I’m in a hurry, my go-to breakfast is yogurt with a bunch of toppings thrown on top. I wasn’t in a hurry this morning but I still made a bowl. Sometimes, I crave disorder.
The funny thing about making yogurt bowls is that they always end up working out. Even when it feels like all I’m doing is throwing ingredients in a bowl, they magically harmonize to create the breakfast of my dreams.
I think the secret involves choosing at least two things that go together. In this case, it was dried figs and walnuts. Granola adds some crunch and honey makes everything better (in my humble opinion). From there, my chaotic yet delicious breakfast was born.
I like to use nonfat Greek yogurt as a base, but feel free to use whatever plain yogurt you have on hand. Throw the rule book out the window but don’t forget the one-two rule: two things in the bowl should make sense so the others don’t have to as much.
Greek Yogurt with Figs and Honey (from me, to you)
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1/4 cup dried figs, sliced in half
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
sprinkle of granola
honey for drizzling on top
Place the Greek yogurt in a bowl. Scatter the figs, walnuts and granola on top. Drizzle with a healthy amount of honey. Enjoy!
