The Ben Franklin Breakfast Bowl

Rated as 4.33 out of 5 Stars

"As Ben Franklin used to say, 'An apple a day keeps the doctor away.' To get a daily dose, I enjoy one of these beautiful breakfast bowls almost every morning. I sometimes garnish with diced persimmon and roasted almonds, but there's no need for honey or dried fruit - it's very satisfying without the added sugar."

  2. Transfer apple cubes to a bowl. Spoon on yogurt and add granola.

It's pretty good, but I don't understand why the apple needs to be cold. By the time it's chopped, it's room temp. Do put a dash of cinnamon...

I made this recipe and liked it. I will need to acquire a taste for the Bellwether Sheep Milk Yogurt. I definitely would recommend it to others. Glad I stumbled upon the recipe.

This is another great starter recipe from Chef John. I’ve made something very similar for years. Mixed fresh berries, raw oats, and nonfat Greek yogurt work remarkably well. If you assemble it t...

I added a dusting of cinnamon to the yogurt but I love this breakfast idea so healthy and it really fills you up. I also experimented with different granola cereals for the topper.
