 Hey guys! I just wanted to pop in this Saturday morning with a pretty speedy recipe that will get you out of the kitchen quicker because it’s nearly summer and I have a feeling we’re all wanting only delicious fuss-free recipes so that we can get on with our weekend plans. And as I’m writing this, I’m having the last bits of granola that I prepared on Sunday night. I’ve managed to eat this breakfast nearly everyday this week and still have some leftover granola for the weekend. This is definitely a recipe to have on hand if you know your week might be a little mad. Just prepare everything the night before, have some fresh yogurt on hand, and your weekly breakfast is set. Now I got to run as it’s my sister’s bridal shower in 2 hours and somehow even with this quick recipe, I’m running a bit late…At least breakfast is taken care of.

Serves: 2

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 17 minutes

Ingredients for the Stewed Fruit:

- 1 cup pitted cherries

-1 cup pitted apricots

- drizzle of honey or maple syrup

- 1 teaspoon vanilla powder

- 2 tablespoons of water

- Plus 2 cups yogurt (I like coconut yogurt)

Ingredients for the Citrus Granola:

**Same ingredients as within this post with the addition of the ingredients below:**

- zest of 1 orange

- 1 huge tablespoon cashew butter (optional)

- juice of half the orange squeezed over the mixture

- handful of raw pumpkin seeds

- 1 tablespoon vanilla powder


To make the stewed fruit use the instructions in this recipe. Note: this stewed fruit will be thicker and not as traditional as a thick stew.

To make the granola use this recipe and add in the additional ingredients once everything has been tossed into a big bowl before cooking in the oven. But go ahead and add the vanilla powder and cashew butter to the melted honey and coconut oil mentioned in the other recipe.

Top the yogurt with the stewed fruit, granola and enjoy!

Have you guys tried stewed fruit topped onto your yogurt? It's one of the best toppings since it's super delicious and quick to whip up! And if you don't have any fresh fruit lying around, feel free to throw in frozen fruit and make it the exact same way.

Hope you guys like this quickie! I'm extremely addicted to making stewed fruit on the fly - which is why I have so many recipes on the blog for different stewed fruit combinations. Just a nice change from normal yogurt with fruit.
