NOTES FOR MEAL PREP:
This is a wonderful recipe for meal prepping. You can store the individual servings in the fridge for 3 – 5 days. But you will want to keep the yogurt and blackberry separate from the granola, to prevent the granola from getting soggy. Follow the recipe until you reach “sprinkle with granola”. Portion out the blackberry yogurt part of the recipe in containers with lids and and store those in the fridge for 3 – 5 days. Then place your granola in plastic zip lock bags in your pantry, pre-portioned out. When it is time to enjoy, simply pour the granola over top of your yogurt and blackberries.
NOTES FOR COUNTING MACROS:
- The protein can be adjusted based on the amount of yogurt used. With each ounce of yogurt you can increase the protein by 3 grams. With this blackberry granola recipe you can choose to have as little or as much yogurt as you would like.
- The carbohydrate can be adjusted based on the amount of granola you use. For every 10 grams of honey almond flax you increase or decrease your carbs by 6.6 grams.
- The fats can be increased by choosing another yogurt, one that is not fat free.
- 2% fat greek yogurt has 2 grams of fat per every 4 ounces.
- 5% fat greek yogurt has 5 grams of fat per every 4 ounces.
This allows you to replace the non-fat greek yogurt with as little or as much fat as you want.
When making adjustments to the macros you will want to keep in mind the number of servings you are making.
