For the last two years now I have been making my own yogurt and my own granola. This makes for healthy and easy snacks or breakfasts for the kids. Mine like to make their own custom yogurt parfaits with their favorite fruits, granola and plain yogurt that we have made.
Not only does this make my mornings run much smoother, it has saved us so much money as well! I recently started making granola balls and homemade Larabars for easy grab and go breakfasts and snacks. My kids say they are better than store bought! I encourage you to not be intimidated and try one or a few of these recipes. I can’t wait to try out more of the cereals!
