Granola has become my go-to breakfast. It’s filling, fast, and packed with all kinds of goodies that are good for you. It’s a great vessel for yogurt and fruit. And you can customize your own concoctions to suit your particular tastes.

My granola immersion began when I ghostwrote a memoir for a woman in the food world who has made big batches of the stuff for more than 40 years. Then came an adaptation of a recipe from Bon Appetite. Next up, my friend and colleague Megan Gordon got into the granola biz. I found myself eating a lot of Marge Granola bags.

And, of course, I’ve continued to play with combinations for this oaty-nutty-seedy baked breakfast dish. It’s my pleasure to share a couple of Megan Gordon’s favorite granola recipes from her new book Whole-Grain Mornings.

Find her hazelnut cacao nib version alongside my piece for Yoga Journal. Or try her apricot pistachio variation included in my Q&A with her for KQED’s food blog Bay Area Bites.

If your tastes tend to savory morning meals, Gordon has you covered: Consider her barley bowl or greens and grains scramble.

Either way, enjoy a wholesome start to the day.

This is an excellent book and has close to transformed my morning eating habits. As soon as I finished the highlights of this book, I dashed off to Berkeley Bowl West and loaded up on varied flakes such as barley, rye, more oats, wheat and the like. I gathered together some other dried fruits, kamut, farro, and have since made muesli, granola, mixed-grain porridge, as well as some of the savory egg-and-grain dishes she suggests.

I have used her book as a template for creative breakfast cooking. Highly recommended.
