For those of you who read my blog regularly, (I love you ), you’re probably aware that I have a major crush on three tasty ingredients:
Greek yogurt, Kashi GOLEAN, and Ground Cinnamon.
Did I say crush?
I actually meant that I’m in a pretty committed relationship with them.
They have their own key to my apartment and a place for their toothbrush in my bathroom.
So imagine my excitement when I received an email from Jessica at Formula PR, asking if I would like to try a sample of a new cereal, GOLEAN CRISP! Cinnamon Crumbles, created by one of their clients, Kashi.
“ A combination of deliciously light and crispy whole grain clusters with natural cinnamon , toasted to perfection”
Kashi: “We packed our New! GOLEAN® Crisp!™ Cinnamon Crumble cereal with 10 grams of protein and 9 grams of fiber — that’s twice the protein and fiber of the average of other cereals* — to help keep you feeling fuller longer!”
I couldn’t wait to try it out.
As I had previously stated, “It’s my favorite cereal and spice all rolled into one!”
For the most part, people like to eat their cereal out of a bowl, covered with ice cold milk and topped with a banana or other fruit of choice.
I however, prefer to use it as a topping on my yogurt, cottage cheese, and as a sweetener in my own trail mix creations.
I even mix it into my smoothies, adding a bit of a “crunch” to an otherwise boring consistency.
I’m the type of girl who likes to incorporate a lot of texture into my meals, and this morning, I knew exactly how I wanted to put these light, sweet, and protein filled cinnamon crumbles to use.
I present to you…
Apple Crisp Yogurt.
- 1 container of plain Greek yogurt
- 1Tbsp chia seeds
- 1/3 cup Cinnamon Crumble
- Sliced Gala apple
I loved the lightly dusted flavor of cinnamon sprinkled onto each cluster. It was not overpowering, and it added just the right amount of sweetness to every bite.
As I prepared my breakfast, I got to thinking about creating the dessert edition to my recipe.
Baked Apple Cinnamon Crumble
- Gala apple; heated in microwave or baked in oven
- Vanilla bean ice cream or Frozen Yogurt
- Dark Chocolate chips
- Kashi GOLEAN Crisp! Cinnamon Crumble sprinkled on top.
Definitely a winner in taste, nutrition and texture .
If you are a fan of Kashi products, give this cereal a try. It’s delicious in all the right ways.
They also offer another flavor, GOLEAN CRISP! Toasted Berry Crumble, and since I apparently have a thing for berries as well, I’m sure I will love it just as much.
You can find GOLEAN CRISP! Cinnamon Crumble, along with Toasted Berry Crumble at your local grocery store and natural food retailers nationwide for around $3.99 per box.
