Your morning yogurt is about to change forever. Move over typical granola, spiced walnut granola is taking over the breakfast scene. Spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg and a little crunch from the walnuts, add this to your favorite yogurt and top with berries for a fresh breakfast.
I absolutely love a good yogurt parfait. And for me, what makes that parfait extra special is a good breakfast granola.
Come on, the granola is what makes the parfait and parfait, and not just boring yogurt with some fruit. But there’s something that holds me back from buying granola in the store, and no it’s not just because I’m a good blogger and want to make it myself. It’s the sugar content!
Some granola can have a surprising sugar content. I know I know, it’s disappointing. But don’t worry! This spiced walnut granola is here to give you the crunch and flavor you’re looking for without an overwhelming amount of sugar.
What I love about this is that I usually have these ingredients on hand, and only need to pickup the chopped walnuts! And, you can easily whip this up on a weekend morning since it only needs 15 minutes to bake.
- Chopped Walnuts
- Quick Oats
- Dark Brown Sugar
- White Sugar
- All purpose flour
- Vanilla Extract
Do you have most of these ingredients in your fridge and pantry? The game change of this recipe compared to other granola recipes is truly in the cinnamon and nutmeg. That warm spice it adds is really something special. And the sugar content is low! In the whole batch of granola, and it makes a lot, there’s only 1/4 cup of dark brown sugar and 1 tablespoon of the white sugar. Just enough to add a hint of sweetness but not taking over the flavor.
This is one of my favorite weekend breakfast foods, and I have a few others you might like too! Do you like scones? I’ve got two that are easy to whip up!
