Coming in with my very last strawberry recipe for you, a simple strawberry yogurt bowl with coconut granola. I don’t know about you, but some days I just don’t have the energy to cook much. Especially on days where my mind is filled with a million work and family things, what to eat feels like the last thing on my mind.

People are often surprised to hear this. Yes, even bloggers/dietitians who live and breath food sometimes get tired of cooking it. And that’s when simple recipes like this strawberry yogurt bowl come in.

Throw some fresh cut berries with a dash of balsamic vinegar, then top with creamy yogurt and my coconut granola. Simple but so, so delicious. I might be tired, but I still want good food.

Have you tried balsamic berries before? I used to think this was a normal way to enjoy strawberries as it’s one of the only ways my grandmother served them growing up. It wasn’t until I was much older that I realized, oh, this is not how most people enjoy fresh strawberries. The acid in the vinegar heightens the sugar in the strawberries and together they create a perfect combination.

While I don’t serve them this way too often, I love it here- especially with the yogurt!

You can use whatever yogurt you like. Sometimes I’m really into coconut yogurt, other times I like my homemade vegan yogurt and other times I crave good old-fashioned plain cow’s yogurt (especially the cream top whole-milk kind.) Do you.

The granola is not to be missed. This is what I consider snacking granola. It’s so addicting that it’s really it’s own snack; I keep a batch in a large mason jar on the counter and we tend to go through the whole thing in a matter of days. Grab a handful here, a handful there, it’s the perfect thing to much on when you want something just slightly sweet.

Assemble and go! Amazing for breakfast but equally a good choice for snack or dinner. If you missed my other strawberry week recipes, make sure to enjoy my strawberry pudding and my vegan strawberry shortcake.

Scale

Ingredients

Coconut Granola:

  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup

Balsamic Strawberries: 

  • 4 cups sliced strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar, optional (recommended if berries aren’t sweet)

Yogurt of choice, for serving

Instructions

  1. Make the granola. Preheat the oven to 300F. In a large bowl, combine together the dry ingredients (oats through baking soda). In a separate bowl, whisk together the maple syrup/honey and coconut oil. Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients and stir together until just combined.
  2. Spread on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes, checking every 15 minutes, stirring often, so that the granola doesn’t burn. Remove from oven and let cool. Granola can be made ahead of time and stored in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
  3. Slice the strawberries and toss with sugar (if desired) and balsamic vinegar. Let sit for 15 minutes.
  4. Assemble! Layer yogurt in a bowl, top with berries and granola.
