Apple Cinnamon Yogurt Bowl
Lately, I have been fighting my sweet tooth, so finding a healthy snack has been challenging. Then I put together this Apple Cinnamon Yogurt Bowl and it brings the comfort of apple pie but without the excess sugar and calories.
This is a great recipe for a healthy snack, but it also makes a great (and quick) breakfast, since it’s perfect for those on-the-go. If you’re really pressed for time, this is even something that you could make the evening before. You know what they say, “Fail to plan, plan to fail.”
One tip that I would recommend with the apples is to sprinkle them with cinnamon and toss them in the microwave for a few seconds. It warms them up and that’s what brings out the apple pie flavor.
3/4 cup 0% plain Greek yogurt
1 granny smith apple
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp chopped walnuts
1 tsp pure maple syrup or raw honey (optional)
This recipe is really easy. All you have to do is chop up the granny smith apple and have your ingredients ready. Grab a bowl and arrange the yogurt at the bottom, then lay the rest of the ingredients on top. The maple syrup or raw honey is optional, as I find that the yogurt bowl is fine without it, but if you’re coming off a high sugar diet this may help you make the transition.
