So I am excited to share my second favorite breakfast with you today...Simple Yogurt Crunch! This is such an easy dish and the heartiness of the nuts will keep you feeling full all the way until lunchtime (unlike most breakfast cereals, which are often made from refined grains that are not filling).
In a medium sized bowl mix together the yogurt, 2 teaspoons of the maple syrup (or honey), and vanilla. Divide equally between 2 or 3 cereal bowls and set aside.
In a medium sized saute pan over medium heat melt the butter. Add the nuts to the pan and stir until well coated. Drizzle the maple syrup (or honey) over the top and cook until lightly toasted (i.e. brown) for about 1 to 2 minutes. Nuts can go from perfect to burnt very quickly so it's important to remove them from the heat as soon as they are ready.
Spoon equal amounts of the nut mixture onto the yogurt bowls, toss a handful of berries on top, and serve. Enjoy!
