Variations & Substitutions
No cottage cheese?
Substitute your favorite yogurt.
Any fruit will work here: sliced strawberries, crushed or chunks of pineapple, chopped peaches, or apple or pear would all be great.
Granola, grapenuts, Cheerios, crushed Special K, Kashi Go lean, Chex, I used crushed up Barbara's Morning Oat Crunch.
Any chopped nut would work: walnuts, cashews, pecans, almonds, peanuts or skip 'em.
Instead of honey, drizzle on a bit of maple syrup, agave or golden syrup. Substitute your favorite sugar free syrup - maple, chocolate, butterscotch, strawberry, blueberry - to shave a SmartPoint.
Chopped dried fruit, chopped freeze dried fruit, mini chocolate chips, mini marshmallows.

So simple, yet I never would have thought to do this. I like that you provide options. I don't care of cottage cheese with fruit, but yogurt worked for me.
I love the granola but was wondering in there are different options that are less points. I have not looked into any yet. I have the natures valley honey and oat bars and if I just 1/2 of 1 bar it is still 2 points! Any suggestions?
Hi Julie, One option would be to make your own Granola to control calories/Points. Here's a good recipe that is lower in points: https://simple-nourished-living.com/everyday-almond-granola/ Another option would be to find a cereal other than granola that provides the same satisfying crunch factor for fewer points. A few good choices: GoLean Crunch, Fiber One cereal, Special K, Kix, Grapenuts. Hope this helps. ~Martha

OMG!! This was so delicious. I've been looking for a low calorie breakfast.
Excellent, but not filling. I added 2 boiled eggs.
