An easy and healthy breakfast that you can make part of ahead of time? Yes, we made it.
You are going to love these delicious Cranberry Apple Granola Bowls for an easy and quick breakfast. The best part? The easy-to-make cranberry apple compote can be made up to a week in advance and at the ready for your breakfast bowls all week long. Feel free to get creative and add other fruit that you might have available.
Tip, if you are adding any other soft berry fruit, it is best to add them at the very end when the orange pieces are added. This will help to keep the berries looking fresh and keep their shape.
