    • Layer granola with Greek yogurt, fresh berries, and a drizzle of honey for a festive and healthy holiday breakfast or dessert option.
  3. Granola-Stuffed Baked Apples:

    • Core apples and fill the center with a mixture of granola, cinnamon, and a bit of brown sugar. Bake until the apples are tender. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
  4. Granola-Crusted Chicken Tenders:

    • Dip chicken tenders in beaten egg and then coat them with a mixture of crushed granola and breadcrumbs. Bake until the chicken is cooked through and the coating is crispy.
  5. Granola Energy Bites:
