Roasted Plum and Granola with Greek Yogurt

I have found my new favorite breakfast dish.  It involves crunchy homemade granola, roasted plums, and tangy greek yogurt.

And its beautiful too!

I was inspired by this recipe.  The original recipe calls for the plums and granola to go with steel cut oats, but since it’s the summer I felt that yogurt was more appropriate.  Plus I love greek yogurt paired with fruit and granola.

Anyway, first I made the granola mixture (oats, cinnamon, honey, coconut oil, walnuts, and flaked coconut).  Then I spread it out on one side of a cookie sheet.  On the other side I placed a halved plum, which I also topped with a small bit of honey, some drops of coconut oil, and cinnamon.  The whole thing went into the oven at 375 degrees F for 15 minutes.

So bright and colorful!IMG_2826

I the cut up one of the halves of the plum.  The plum was so soft that it turned all soft and mushy.

I spooned the plum onto of some greek yogurt . . . how amazing does that look with the sharp contrast between the white, pink, and orange?!

I hadn’t even anticipated this would be that good, BUT IT WAS.  A perfect summer treat.
