Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is a light and delicious breakfast option. We loved how the cinnamon and sugar mixture makes the pita sweet and crunchy. It's a great compliment to the creamy yogurt and fruit mixture. There is a great combination of fruits stuffed inside. Toasted almonds are a great topping and add that last bit of crunch. A simple but yummy idea!

Ingredients

CINNAMON & SUGAR MIXTURE

2 tsp
sugar
1/2 tsp
cinnamon

STUFFING MIXTURE

5 oz
Greek yogurt, vanilla flavored
4 medium
strawberries, sliced
1 small
banana, sliced
1/2 small
apple (I use peeled granny smith) diced
10
grapes, sliced in half
4 tsp
sliced almonds, toasted

PITA

2
pita pockets, cut in half and split open for stuffing
2 tsp
butter or olive oil

Step-By-Step

1Heat a cast iron griddle or any skillet over medium-low heat.
2If you don't already have a cinnamon & sugar mixture, then mix the two together in a small dish.
3Butter/oil both sides of the 4 pitas. Sprinkle each side with 1/4 tsp of the cinnamon mixture.
4Place all 4 pitas on pre-heated griddle/skillet. Cook until nicely browned, about 3-5 mins.
5Then flip to the other side and repeat.
6While pitas are browning/toasting, clean and slice all the fruits.
7Add to a bowl, mix until well combined.
8Let the pitas cool and then spread 1-2 tablespoons of the Greek yogurt inside the pita.
9Fill with fruit.
10Sprinkle the toasted almonds. Enjoy.
11TIP: If you need to toast your sliced almonds, put them on a small pan and put them in a pre-heated oven or toaster oven for about 4-5 minutes, until lightly browned.
