This recipe came out of a necessity to recreate. I found myself splurging on the seven dollar granola bowl at Gjelina Takeaway far too often. The sheer simplicity of ingredients, highlighted by their quality is what makes the food at Gjelina spectacular. The fruit is fresh from a local farmer’s market, the honey is of a raw and pure form, and their granola is full of texture and variety.
The recipe for this granolia bowl is incredibly simple but mandates a trip to the farmer’s market for the absolute tastiest berries. Quality granola, honey, and coconut flakes can easily be found at Whole Foods. The choice of fresh berries is a complete variable but I personally love the combination of fresh sliced strawberries, with juicy, in-season blackberries!
The best part of this recipe is that there is a ton of room for improvisation. You can top with chopped walnuts, sprinkle with chia seeds, or even drizzle on flax seed oil for an omega-3 boost and additional protein and fiber.
