My New Cake Substitute

I just discovered the best thing ever. 

Vanilla Almond Granola Cereal + Greek Yogurt = Vanilla Cake 

I have a serious sweet tooth and would eat cake all the time.
I'm also boring and LOVE vanilla. It's definitely one of my favorite flavors. 
Given the choice, I'll get the vanilla ice cream every time. 
(Unless I feel guilty about not getting a "fun" flavor, which is more often than I'd like to admit.)

Luckily, this does not spoil as quickly as real cake.
And the rich creaminess of the Greek yogurt makes it seem less like a healthy substitution.
(I have to trick myself into any attempts at being healthy.)

Given that granola has a high fat content and this cereal has a bit of sugar in it, this isn't the healthiest if you, say, eat the entire box in one sitting. I usually go for about half a serving of the cereal with just enough yogurt to coat all the granola and feel satiated enough. 

Do you have any health(ier) substitutes for dessert?


  1. Great (Erica) minds think alike, because my latest key lime pie substitute is Bare Naked's Banana Granola in lime flavored greek yogurt from Dannon. It is sooooo gooood!

    1. That sounds amazing. I absolutely love citrus flavored desserts. I'm totally going to pick these up next time I see them!

  2. Hello! I recently just started a youtube Korean food channel, EasyKoreanFood, where you can learn how to make fast and easy Korean food! It would mean the world to me if you took the time to check it out because I'm just starting out! Thanks!

    1. Hi! Thanks for reading!
