Mamavation moms who eat a healthy breakfast have more success. That’s just the way it is. One of the most popular breakfasts on the Mamavation menu plan is the yogurt parfait. Yogurt, berries, and a sprinkle of granola. A simple meal to start the day off on the right foot, and one that’s easy and quick to throw together in a rush. But what about the granola? How do you find one without a bunch of added sugar? It’s almost impossible. Luckily, it’s easy enough to make your own. This recipe takes 20 minutes to stir and bake, and makes a big enough batch to last you a few weeks. Try playing around with the ingredients and coming up with your own unique blend. No sugar needed!
