i tend to start my days with a little bowl of yogurt, granola and fresh fruit if i have some in the fridge. this version has oats from maine, cashews, almonds, pumpkin seeds, quinoa, vanilla, honey and a smidgen of molasses. i added dried strawberries that i had kicking around but any dried fruit would be delicious. —Nicole Vezina
