Here is a quick and easy breakfast – if you are in a hurry to run to work or to run errands, here is what you can do (actually that is what I do). Have a bag of granola in your office or home. May be keep a small carton of plain yogurt in your office fridge as well. When you run out of the door make sure to grab some berries and nuts. That’s all. Once you are settled just mix and match the ingredients to make your wholesome breakfast. That is how I eat breakfast on a week day. But I take my yogurt in a small rubber maid container. You might be wondering why? Because I always make yogurt at home. Home made yogurt has a distinct taste and flavor as opposed to any store bought yogurt. Trust me, I have bought several brands of yogurt including the organic ones. But none came close to a home made yogurt. I will be posting a recipe on that soon.
So back to this recipe. Recently when I went to Trader Joe’s they were giving samples of their organic toasted coconut granola. I tried and bought a bag. Until now, it has become my favorite granola. Unlike other brands this one has so much of ingredients in there, especially they are so generous about each ingredients. To mention a few lot of dried flaked coconut, toasted chopped almonds etc. Below is an image of that bag. Now I am so hooked to this granola, I have been buying only this one for the last few months.
Now to the matcha green tea powder. I have heard a lot about this green tea powder. But I thought to give it a try after reading a blog from Vegan needs for a breakfast smoothie which used the matcha green tea powder. So I tried it with my special granola bowl. It was heavenly delicious. I topped with blueberries and goji berries. But you can use other berries such strawberries, raspberries or even blackberries. Since the granola had a lot of nuts, I did not use any nuts. If you prefer you can top with your favorite nuts. In the recipe below I have not given the amount for the topping since I will leave it up to you.
