Pumpkin Yogurt with Chocolate Walnut Granola
Am I the only one who goes to the grocery store at bizarre times? I’ve found myself going at 7am on a sunday morning and 9:45pm on a friday night. When I head to the store on a friday night, I’m thinking, ‘Uhh, shouldn’t I have plans? I’m only 25!’ But, I think I have a whole lotta grandma-ness in me. I get up early, I go to bed early, I wear a bazillion layers all the time because I am cold. What’s another thing that makes me like a grandma? The sun blinds me when I’ve driving during sunrise or sunset, and I think I would benefit from some of those HUGE sunglasses. I’m talking about the kind that have plastic edges all around them, ensuring that no light will get in. Take a look here.
Yesterday an infomercial came on TV for a product called the EZ View and I got so excited because I will not be needing a pair of those grandma glasses! The infomercial had me totally hooked and I realized that the EZ View is the best invention! It’s a sun visor extender that flips down from your regular visor. I hope it’s not grandma-ish because I really need it for all my grocery store trips. Anyone else want one? We could order in bulk :)
Luckily I made it to the store and back, even through all the sun glare, to get the ingredients to make pumpkin yogurt with chocolate walnut granola. Whatever squinting I had to do was worth it to eat this for breakfast. This delicious fall recipe took me 20 minutes from start to finish, 2 minutes to make the yogurt and about 18 minutes to prep and bake the granola. I decided to bake up some extra granola so we could snack on it throughout the week – since the pumpkin yogurt only takes a minute or two to make, it’s easy to make whenever.
And when I run out of pumpkin yogurt, I will eat the granola with a spoon :)
