i am on SUCH a kick with this breakfast. it’s so quick, easy, and completely satisfying. i like to start my day off on the right foot- and this yogurt + granola combo with some fresh fruit really does the trick. i love to mix some chocolate protein powder into my yogurt for a creamy, chocolatey bowl topped with this crunchy buckwheat granola.

this delicious granola is gluten free, vegan, nut free, and nutrient-dense. plus, it makes a ton, which is always a huge bonus!

enjoy! xx
