My kids love yogurt and I can't help but want to swap in Greek yogurt for its higher protein properties. There are a lot of options out there now, even ones that come with fruit, to sweeten up the more sour taste of plain Greek yogurt, but it's not usually the yogurt my kids want to finish...until now. When I get both "I like this" and "I want more," I know I've got a winner. I also love that I can control the ingredients and add in some of my hidden favorites like coconut oil and bananas for potassium.
Baked the night before, it's sure to make my breakfast routine for the kids fast and protein-packed.

Granola for your Greek
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
1/2 cup shaved coconut
1 tsp vanilla extract
1) Preheat oven to 325 degrees
2) Smash bananas in a bowl and combine with all ingredients. There's no need to melt the coconut oil as it will soften as you stir.
3) Line a cookie pan with foil and spread the mixture evenly across the surface.
4) Bake 50 minutes, remove, and cool. Crumble and use on your Greek yogurt. Other great uses are additions to your favorite cereal, topping for ice cream, or a crunchy top to a smoothie.
