Recipe: Greek Yogurt with Gluten Free Granola Bowl
I have a new favorite gluten-free breakfast option: greek yogurt with gluten free granola. Yes, it sounds simple. And it is. And that’s why it’s so fantastic. I find breakfast to be one of the hardest meals to eat since going gluten-free. Think about it. If you’re in a pinch you probably make a piece of toast, or grab a bagel or muffin at your local coffee shop. Or have a bowl of oatmeal. Or cereal. What do us gluten free folks do?
Aside from protein shakes, eggs, and chia seed pudding, I have happily added this greek yogurt with gluten free granola bowl to my breakfast arsenal. It’s easy to make and hearty enough to stick with me through the morning. It’s not paleo, but it is gluten free and overall pretty healthy. I started eating this stuff on our camping trip a couple weeks ago and I bought all my own ingredients at the grocery store and have made this nearly every morning for the past 3 weeks. Now it’s time to spread the love and share this yummy gluten free breakfast option with all of you. It’s not really a recipe – more of a yummy gluten free breakfast idea!
Here’s what you will need:
- Greek Yogurt. I use the 0% by FAGE. I buy the stuff in the big carton and put a couple spoonfuls in a bowl and it lasts throughout the week.
- Fruit. Pick your fruit of choice. I like blueberries in mine. I also have used raspberries and banana. All are good!
- Gluten Free Granola. I really like the Peanut Butter Clusters by KIND that I reviewed in a previous post. I also like the Udi’s Vanilla Gluten-Free Granola.
Additional Toppings: I mix in some or all of the following depending on what we have in the house.
- Coconut Milk I like to mix this in to make my bowl feel a little more like cereal. It tastes good to me.
- Almond Butter If I’m really hungry or know I need some extra fuel for the day, I wil mix in 1 tbsp of Almond Butter. It is delicious. You could also easily just eat greek yogurt mixed with almond butter. We like the Justin Almond Butter.
- Honey / Agave Just a small drizzle if you want that sweet touch.
- Chia Seeds Throw in a tablespoon of these for some added fiber.
- Flax Seeds Add some ground flax seeds to the mix and get in some Omega 3’s.
I am really enjoying this yummy gluten free breakfast option right now and I hope you do too.

Yum! I hope the weather cools down soon so I can bake a batch of granola.
I’ve been eating a few scoops of Greek yogurt every AM as added protein. I switch between Fage 0% and Oikos.
