Clean Eating with KIND Granola

clean eating yogurt parfaitAs much as I love making homemade clean eating granola and snacks for travel, I'm not superwoman. I only have so many hours in the weekend that allow me to cook and bake from scratch, and I usually prioritize cooking our main meals over desserts and snacks.

When I don't have time to create healthy snacks on my own, I turn to KIND Healthy Snacks. I have been a huge fan of KIND bars for a long time now. I always have one packed in my laptop bag and suitcase for hunger emergencies. My favorite is the Peanut Butter & Dark Chocolate + Protein bar. These all natural bars are a life saver! One can hold me over between meals and I don't have to feel guilty over it tasting so good.

KIND also makes granola. Recently I was lucky enough to receive some samples of their granola clusters. My favorite flavor was the Peanut Butter Whole Grain Clusters. Absolutely delicious! If you like peanut butter, you'll love this granola.

This flavor is protein packed, with a blend of peanuts and whole grains. One serving contains 16kg of whole grains!

I put a half a cup full in a baggie for my travels and made yogurt parfaits one night with my hubby. Here's my Clean Eating Yogurt Parfait recipe:

Start with 6 oz. of Greek yogurt (I used Fage), and add toppings! My mix of toppings include:
 - KIND Granola (Peanut Butter Whole Grain, but all flavors taste delicious)
 - Fresh blueberries
 - Fresh strawberries
 - Unsweetened coconut
 - Extra dark chocolate chips
 - Sprinkles

This is also a fun snack to make with kids. When I have my niece and nephew over I put all of the toppings in different bowls and let them add the toppings to their individual yogurt bowls. It's a 'build your own yogurt parfait' bar!

You can buy KIND granola from the KIND website, Soap.com and Walmart.
