Trim HealthyTuesday: Apple Cinnamon Granola (E)

Yeah! My first Trim Healthy Mama post! This is a quick an easy E (energizing) breakfast that won't spike your blood sugar. (if you are interested in learning more about the Trim Healthy Mama Book go check out Gwen's book review about it!) THM is all about separating your fuel sources to loose weight, and IT WORKS, I've lost over 40 pounds so far. One of the main reasons it works for me, is because I can still eat dessert(and lots of yummy healthy fat in a S-satisifying meal setting!) and loose weight! (life without dessert? no way!) This breakfast also works as a yummy dessert just add a little Fat free Reddi Whip on top ;)
 
Apple-Cinnamon Granola- E
 
Ingredients:
1/2 cup Ezekiel 4:9 cereal (original only)
1/2 cup 0% greek yogurt (I like Chobani)
1/2 an apple
1/2 tsp maple flavoring
2 tsp Truvia (or a few sprinkles of stevia to taste)
Cinnamon to taste
 
Add 1/2 cup of Ezekiel cereal to your bowl
and top with one tsp Truvia, sprinkle with cinnamon to taste (nutmeg or cardamom might be nice here as well!)
 
In a separate bowl (or all in the same bowl if your in a rush) add 1/2 a cup of Greek yogurt, 1/2 tsp maple flavoring, and 1 tsp Truvia
Mix well
 
Dice half and apple
 
 
Add yogurt to your granola
 
Add the apple on top (and giggle with your kids over the reference to this book)
 
 
Mix together and enjoy!!
