Yogurt Panna Cotta recipe with Peaches and Granola is a dreamy make-ahead breakfast! Make-ahead for entertaining, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day or anytime you need a special treat for breakfast!
I’m over the post-holiday hump and looking forward to all the special one day celebrations coming up. Valentine’s Day is pretty much celebrating with a more elaborate meal and Mother’s Day I like to have brunch made for me.
This Peaches and Cinnamon Granola with Yogurt Panna Cotta recipe is a great dish for those special days or even a day where you want everything made ahead and a quick assembly.
This recipe is an adaptation of a yogurt panna cotta recipe I made awhile back. Here, the peaches are the star and any granola or oats/nuts can be the additional garnish, I loved the hit of cinnamon.
It’s brings the dish back to a cozy time of year while still having bright fresh flavours.
Plus, peaches. How great is it that we find enjoy sweet, juicy, and delicious peaches all year round thanks to canned peaches?!
Often packed in their own juice and never containing preservatives, I’m thankful that summer ripe peaches are found year-round in the canned fruit aisle.
Variations / Substitutions for this Panna Cotta Recipe:
- Peaches can be replaced with fresh berries of any kind, although blueberries would go fabulously with this Small Batch Cinnamon Granola.
- Use store bought granola of your preference to save some time.
- Swap the cinnamon in the granola for 1 tsp of vanilla extract and 1 tsp of lemon zest to add some tang.
I love the sweet peach addition in this One Pan Sausage, Peaches, and Potatoes, and canned peaches would work well there. They’d become a bit more sticky and the recipe wouldn’t need the jam.
If it’s Friday and you’ve hit a wall for the week, canned peaches would be SO good in this Spiked Peach Iced Tea.
