Rhubarb Crumble Yogurt Bowl

Rhubarb Crumble Yogurt Bowl

My parents have a sprawling rhubarb patch and they are kind enough to share the wealth. I’m a sucker for a good rhubarb loaf, but this year I chose to use my first bundle of rhubarb to test out a new recipe – rhubarb compote!

Rhubarb Crumble Yogurt Bowl

One of the perks of rhubarb compote is its versatility. You can add a dollop on ice cream, cheesecake or in this case – a yogurt bowl! Sprinkled with granola, this rhubarb yogurt bowl is something you can look forward to as you drag yourself out of bed in the morning.

Peanut Butter Granola

Peanut Butter Granola

Gasp all you want, but I just hopped on the granola bandwagon. I know, I know. Granola has been around forever, but I was never really a huge fan. I’ve boiled this down to the fact that granola is often paired with yogurt – a food item that is not on the top of my list.

Recently, I had the realization that granola isn’t married to yogurt. I could nibble on it as a snack or pour myself a bowl with almond milk for breakfast. This was a huge turning point in my relationship with granola! Now I find myself daydreaming about breakfast when I can munch on another bowl.

There are endless variations of granola, but my favorite has been this Peanut Butter Granola. The ingredients are simple, but the flavor is rich and creamy. If you have more of a sweet tooth, you could sprinkle in mini chocolate chips and snack on this as an afternoon treat!
