Step 1: Prepare the Homemade Granola
  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  3. Spread the granola mixture evenly on the prepared baking sheet.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the granola is golden brown and crispy. Allow to cool completely.

Step 2: Make the Greek Yogurt Blend

Step 3: Assemble the Bowl
  1. In serving bowls, layer the Greek yogurt blend at the bottom.

  2. Add a generous amount of homemade granola on top of the yogurt.

  3. Arrange the fresh blueberries, raspberries, diced mango, and sliced kiwi fruit on top of the granola.

Step 4: Serve

Chef's Notes:

  • Granola Variations: Feel free to customize the granola by adding other nuts like almonds or pecans, seeds like pumpkin or sunflower seeds, or different dried fruits according to your preference.

  • Yogurt Blend: For a vegan version, substitute Greek yogurt with a plant-based yogurt. Adjust the sweetness of the yogurt blend according to your taste by adding more banana or a drizzle of honey or maple syrup.

  • Storage: The homemade granola can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks. The Greek yogurt blend should be consumed immediately, or it can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 day.
