If I could propose to this breakfast, I would. O.m.g. It’s that good.
I was browsing Larder and Cupboard on Sunday and the salesman let me try a free sample of Made Fare Co. lemon blueberry granola. I tipped back the plastic cup and ate some and temporarily blacked out. I’ve never tried better granola. I’m not exaggerating.
Made Fare Co.’s granola is superior for two reasons: taste and texture. Sometimes, granola *tastes* like a flavor and not the ingredient. For example, it has chocolate and cherry notes but you can tell it’s fake.
That’s not the case here. The lemon blueberry granola tastes like lemons and blueberries. It’s fresh, real, and delicious. It makes me feel good, too…I guess there are worse drugs.
Also, the texture is light. The granola is baked to golden perfection and it’s not too hard or clumpy. It breaks apart easily and seems to melt in your mouth, which is a weird thing for granola to do but it’s true. I don’t know how it manages this but I never want it to change.
Anyway. I’ll stop before I sound like an extended sales pitch for Made Fare Co. But if you’re in the St. Louis area, or even if you’re not, you should DEFINITELY buy some. It comes in small bags but a little goes a long way.
To make this bowl, scoop some nonfat Greek yogurt into a bowl and drizzle on some honey. Mix the honey and yogurt and then top with blueberries, toasted almonds, lemon blueberry granola, and another drizzle of honey.
This breakfast was so good that it made me not want to make a smoothie bowl and eat the same thing three days in a row. If that’s not true love, I don’t know what is.
Here’s a song that I heard in the car on the way to work this morning. There’s a new R&B radio station in St. Louis, 103.7, and I’m mildly obsessed. It plays throwbacks like this one and newer songs, like TLC’s Way Back (which is honestly the hit of the summer and if you don’t believe this, you’re wrong).
