I’ve made different variations of this Toasted Almond Pecan Peanut Butter Granola so many times. Use a different nut butter or nuts and you’ve created another flavorful granola.
One of my healthy habits and old standbys for a quick and easy, protein-rich breakfast that I can eat on the go or at my desk (or in my craft room) is mixing my homemade granola with one of the FAGE (pronounced Fa-yeh) Total Split Cups.
Toasted Almond Pecan Peanut Butter Granola
This homemade granola recipe is a favorite with my son and husband. I started making it a few years ago so my husband would stop buying a cheap boxed brand that was full of ingredients I couldn’t pronounce.
Who knew granola was SO easy to make, but do keep an eye on it because you can over toast it quickly. If you watched my Instagram Stories, then you probably saw how I burned a batch. Good thing it’s quick to make! I had another batch ready to go in minutes! Print out the recipe below.
Eating healthier seems to always be a priority for most people, as it should be right?
After spending a few weeks in Europe this summer, I was impressed with their lack of food and diet obsessions and their focus on the abundance of wholesome, balanced and fresh foods. Nothing is refined! It was a good reminder to continue to make healthy decisions! Removing artificial sugars is a big one for me!
It made me feel good about my breakfast choices; FAGE Total Split Cups with my homemade Granola. I am totally rocking the healthy breakfast decisions! As mentioned, one of my healthy habits includes the FAGE Split Cup Yogurts.
FAGE Total Split Cups are all-natural, rich in protein, not in sugar, creamy, nutritious and always satisfying. Eat them alone or add my homemade granola for a bit of crunch. Both are my perfect solution for more satisfying breakfast or treat.
They come in 3 different fat levels; FAGE Total (whole milk), FAGE Total 2%, FAGE Total 0%, and in a variety of fruit toppings.
Strawberry, peach, and cherry are my favorites right now. Eating healthy doesn’t have to come at the expense of a little decadence!
When I’m not eating them for breakfast, I’m eating one for a mid-day snack or dessert!
How to Eat a FAGE Total Split Cup with Homemade Granola
The split cup design is what I LOVE! Well, I love a lot about them, but I have to admit I look forward to flipping that split cup up, allowing the delicious real fruit topping to pour out into the creamy Greek yogurt.
Eat it just like this, or add a sprinkle of my toasted almond pecan peanut butter granola to the top and stir.
See how easy that was? And doesn’t that look delicious? That’s a little piece of all-natural, indulgent, nutritious and satisfying Greek strained yogurt heaven, all in one spoonful!

I’ve noticed that if I want to create bigger chunks, the key is to gently toss after baking, as to not break it into smaller pieces.
