A bowl of granola, yogurt & berries served in a ceramic bowl and eaten with a metal spoon.
Such basic creature comforts become an absolute treat while on the road; especially when you’re used to a breakfast of instant oats consumed from a tiny cooking pot with a plastic spoon. I present, courtesy of my lovely host Ann from Edible Education, an extra tasty granola recipe. Nourish your body and your soul!
