I usually make raw granola but this morning it was so bright and sunny that I decided to make healthy and easy granola cups with vegan yogurt with fruit instead of smoothies.
It was relatively easy and it looked so pretty! The perfect dish for a healthy vegan brunch.
It took only 35 minutes to make and about 5 minutes to eat them, haha. The granola is sweetened with maple syrup and ground cinnamon. It has a delicious crunch provided by cashew nuts and flax seeds. The creaminess and tartness of the yogurt is the perfect combo, add colorful fruit of your choice and Voila, a dish to impress!
Meadow really loves yogurt which is so great because I’m a huge fan of fermented food. I’m all about kombucha, kimchi, and anything that provides probiotics for a healthy gut. We have not gotten sick all winter (knock on wood) so grateful. I think its because of this wonderful plant-based lifestyle and making fermented food a part of our daily meals.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week and thank you for visiting!
