I failed making granola this weekend. I burnt it and I burnt it bad. I was going to make granola and tell you how much I love it on greek yogurt. But alas that blog post is now burnt along with those helpless oats. But everything happens for a reason! Maybe that is why I thought of these cinnamon sugar croutons. I don’t know about you but I can’t eat yogurt without some crunch on it. This goes for frozen yogurt too… you gotta fill about half your cup with sprinkles and candy for the proper crunch factor. Anyways… remember cinnamon sugar toast? When your mom would toast u some beautiful white bread and cover it with butter then cinnamon sugar? Those were the days. Now we have to be more responsible. Now we have to make cinnamon sugar croutons and have a few on top of our super healthy 0% greek yogurt. I added these to Chobani’s Strawberry greek yogurt and it was SO GOOD! I also added some berries and it felt like I was eating dessert! Another way I made this a bit healthier was instead of coating them in butter I just sprayed them with butter flavored cooking spray. Another simple and delicious addition to a sometimes boring routine of yogurt.
Bread, cooking spray and cinnamon-sugar.
I cut my loaf into slices then each slice into 12 little cubes!
Lay the cubes on a cookie sheet and spray with cooking spray.
Then toss with cinnamon sugar and bake for 17 minutes.
And thats it! I added mine to some strawberry greek yogurt but you can add them to anything or eat plain!
- 1 loaf french bread
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- butter flavored cooking spray
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut loaf into small cubes and place on cookie sheet. Spray bread with cooking spray, toss and spray again. In a small bowl mix sugar and cinnamon. Slowly pour cinnamon sugar mixture onto bread until each piece is coated. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until crispy.
