For today’s feature recipe we are enjoying delicious, gut friendly Yogurt with Spiced Granola from Kiwi and Carrot. This is a nice little treat that my boys fell head over heels for.  They all agree that yogurt is the best all time food ever.

I altered the granola a bit to suit what I had on hand.

  • Added shredded coconut
  • Substituted the whole wheat flour for coconut flour
  • Substitute chia seeds for flaxseed meal
  • Substitute pepita seeds for pumpkin seeds

Coconut is great for improving the body’s ability to absorb calcium and magnesium, helping to maintain strong bones and teeth. 

Flaxseed is a powerhouse for omega-3 fatty acids.  These healthy fats promote heart health and aid in cancer prevention. 

Flaxseed is also a great source of fiber that encourages colon and digestive health. 

Pumpkin Seeds are rich in zinc and help boost the immune system and fertility.

  3. Spread granola on a baking sheet and cook for 1 hour and 10 minutes, stirring every 20 minutes.
