Breakfast Lago de Atitlan

At Casa del Mundo, and in many other greenie-granola-hippie-friendly places in Guatemala, they serve the best breakfast I've ever had. Since we've been back, we we made it at least three times a week. Unfortunately, we've run out of the homemade granola from CdM, which means that we're currently searching for a granola recipe that approximates the crunchy goodness we found there.

What is it?

Breakfast Lago de Atitlan

1 cup of freshly sliced fruit (apple, mango, banana, papaya, strawberries, pineapple)
1-1 1/2 cup of yogurt (or even cottage cheese will work)
wheat germ or flax seeds (optional)

Place the cup of fruit in a bowl and spoon the yogurt over the fruit. Drizzle with honey, and then surround in a ring with granola. You can sprinkle the wheat germ or flax right on tops

Take a big spoon and eat. Yum!

If you have a suggestion for a granola recipe that has pepitas in it, please let me know.

Our ideas: oats, unsweetened coconut, peanuts, sesame seeds, a few raisins or currants, pepitas, honey, oil. Bake it all up and mix it around.
