We love eating our granola with the obvious yogurt or milk, but it's always fun to think of unexpected ways to incorporate OMG into a recipe. This brulée makes a great breakfast or dessert. And who doesn't like bourbon in sweet treats? We challenge you to try it and let us know what you think. Here it goes:
1 1/2 cups of Vintage granola
1/4 cup dried currants
2 tablespoons of bourbon
1 cup of water
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 tablespoon maple syrup
2 tablespoons table sugar
*Preheat your oven for 350 degrees.
*Mix granola with dried currants, bourbon and water in a small saucepan; bring to a boil.
*Lower to a simmer and cook for 10 minute until the water has been mostly absorbed.
*Transfer to 1 larger baking dish (or two smaller ones) and bake for 15 minutes.
*Remove the oatmeal from the oven, cover with table sugar, and then broil for a few minutes until the top is golden and hard.
Maple Whipped Cream:
*While the oatmeal is baking, make your maple syrup whipped cream by beating whipping cream until soft peaks form.
*Add the maple syrup and beat for one minute more.
Remove from the oven and serve with the maple whip, a few sliced berries, and a sprinkling of Vintage granola for texture.

We are going to cave into the pumpkin craze because it doesn’t really feel like fall without some pumpkin in our lives. Are we right? These oats taste like pumpkin pie without the added sugar or guilt. This recipe is so comforting and it's insanely delicious. We know that once you try it, you will want to make it over and over!

Makes 6 popsicles
1-1 1/2 cups strawberries, chopped/sliced (or any berry of your of choice)
2 cup greek yogurt vanilla, blended
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup Vintage granola
Combine together yogurt, honey, strawberries and scoop of granola into a small bowl. Pour a spoonful of granola into the bottom of each popsicle mold. Then add a heaping spoonful or two of strawberry mixture until the molds are filled. Use a popsicle stick to work out any air bubbles. Insert popsicle sticks into each mold and place the popsicles in the freezer. Freeze for at least 4-6 hours.
To unmold, run the popsicle molds under running water for a few seconds and gently easy the popsicles out. Popsicles will keep in the freezer for several weeks.
We were getting bored of the usual skim or almond milk in our morning bowl of granola, so we decided to create our own with our favorite flavors. This milk proves to be healthy, delicious, and it just takes minutes to make. Of course, it makes a great breakfast, but also try it as a mid-day snack or as a healthy dessert. Make this and we guarantee you will take your usual granola bowl to a whole new level!

Who doesn’t love a good piece of toast (toasted, of course) with some nut butter and little added crunch? ‘Fancy’ toast seems to be the craze these days, and we are in on drinking some of that kool-aid too. A new favorite breakfast in the OMG family has become a piece of extra toasted crusty, whole grain bread smeared with peanut butter and topped with banana and granola, preferably Bad Monkey.
It makes a complete breakfast especially perfect pre or post workout. It’s provides you with a combination of carbs, fats (the good kind), and protein; you want to aim to have all three at every meal. Just make sure to buy whole grain and ditch the white stuff. It doesn’t have the health benefits that whole grains can provide you and won’t keep you as full either.
The best part about toast is that you can get creative: substitute nut butter for yogurt or cottage cheese, drizzle on some honey or date syrup, add preserves or fresh fruit and the list goes on.
Here we have some Justin’s honey peanut butter, a ripe banana and a serving of Bad Monkey. How do you like your toast?
Baked oatmeal is another delicious alternative to your ordinary bowl of warm oatmeal. And the best part about it? This recipe only requires one bowl and 10 minutes of your time. Then, you’ve got yourself a healthy and delicious breakfast ready to go! The granola naturally adds an extra layer of flavor, helping to keep the ingredient list short.
1 cup Bad Monkey Granola
1 cup old-fashioned oats
1 ½ cups almond milk
3 tbs Kuna Chia
1 tbs date syrup (or maple syrup or honey)
1 tbs vanilla extract
1 tsp baking power
Dash of cinnamon
Peanut butter (melted, for drizzle)
Set oven at 375 degrees. Grease a small baking tray and set aside. Mix all ingredients together and transfer to tray (except for the melted peanut butter). Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden. Allow the dish to cool for a few minutes then drizzle melted peanut butter. Enjoy!

Sometimes, change can be scary, even when you know you’re doing it for the right reasons. Recently, our family made a decision to change one of our favorite recipes, Sunrise, and we’ll be the first to admit that it was a little intimidating. We know some of you love Sunrise just how it is now, and while we hate to change even the smallest part of that, we know it’s the right thing to do.
So what are we changing?
We’re removing mango from the recipe. In order to keep the mango bits from drying out too much, the mango we sourced was sulfured mango. This preserved the color and texture of the mango and made it possible to use the dried fruit without risk of it getting too hard or sharp.
Since we first started making Sunrise, we’ve been searching for a non-sulfured option that would meet our high standards for both taste and texture, and frankly, none of our options were up to that standard. We want to be true to the handcrafted, quality vision we started with, and we are exceedingly aware of how important the quality of even a small ingredient like mango is. That’s why we made the decision to remove it.
What does this change mean for the flavor?
Hopefully, you will hardly notice the change, other than a slight shift in texture. None of our other ingredients are changing, so the predominant ingredients (orange, coffee and macadamia) will continue to energize and shine, while our oats will still deliver the satisfying texture you love.
If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact us, leave a comment here, or find us on Facebook or Instagram. We are excited to make a change for the better, and can’t wait for you to enjoy our improved Sunrise craft granola.
“How do you like working together?”
It’s probably the question we get asked most, my mother and I. Naturally, we look at each other with a smile and both respond with a simple, “Love it!”
Since childhood, my mother has been my role model and best friend. If she ate a piece of cake, I ate a piece of cake. If she didn’t like oysters, I hated oysters. If she wanted to go to a particular restaurant, I wanted to go to that restaurant. We were basically two peas in a pod since the very beginning.
Now the craziest part of it all is that we look identical (if you couldn’t tell already). I’m officially her ‘mini me’ and she will be the first to tell you that. Friends, family, and now clients always like to tease that we look nothing alike!
All jokes aside, we both agree that the highlight of Oat My Goodness is the fact that we get to work together. It is truly gratifying to be able to call my mother my business partner. We each have our strengths and weaknesses and together we make a great team. The respect we have for each other is endless, and we can both agree, that’s key.
When this project was still just an idea, we discussed that I would head the business end while my mother would lead the production. Her special recipe and my passion to create my own business is what led us to begin this venture. We have kept it that way ever since.
Now you may ask…
Shohreh Vojdani, Mother
Position: Co-Founder, Chef
Did you ever even imagine you would work with your daughter one day? I never did, but this is a dream come true. Her passion was always in fashion, so I thought she would stay in the industry.
What made you decide to start this venture together? It was a perfect set up. I figured I had a great product and my daughter would be the perfect partner. So I figured, why not?
One word to describe your partner: Inspiring.
Yasaman Vojdani, Daughter
Position: Co-Founder, VP of Marketing and Sales
What's the biggest lesson you’ve learned from your mother? Always be resilient and stay true to yourself.
What do you admire most about her: She doesn’t take ‘no’ for an answer. Feisty lady!
What’s your favorite activity together? Going on long walks and just chatting. We could talk for hours and not realize how much time has gone by.
It's standard to eat granola as a sweet breakfast, but we figured why not try it in a savory preparation? A little crunch on top never hurts. We highly recommend this dish for your next dinner party. It's an easy side dish that will be sure to impress all your guests!
Heat your oven to 350 degrees, and while it’s heating, prepare your carrots. In a heatproof dish covered with parchment paper, drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil over 6 or 7 cleaned and peeled carrots. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt, 1 teaspoon of cumin and ½ tablespoon of brown sugar. Rub the mixture to coat the carrots, and bake until tender and browning in spots (approx. 1 hour) Make sure to toss them every so often. In a separate dish, mix 1 tablespoon of salted yogurt (e.g. Sohha) or plain Greek yogurt with a pinch of salt +1 tablespoon of milk. Mix until it’s the consistency of heavy cream. When the carrots are done, plate, drizzle with the yogurt, and sprinkle with a tablespoon or two of Sunrise granola.
Granola bars are great because they are so versatile. They make a perfect breakfast or snack whether its at school, in the office, or packed in your bag for a quick bite. They are a great keep healthy snack option. This granola bar recipe calls for 'Bad Monkey' but feel free to use your favorite 'OMG' flavor.
8 oz package of Oat My Goodness Bad Monkey granola
2 1/2 tablespoons honey
2 1/2 tablespoons muscovado (or dark brown) sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 300 F. Add the honey, brown sugar, baking soda and vanilla to a small heatproof bowl and microwave, 20 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until the mixture has dissolved completely. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the brown sugar mixture, granola, and chocolate chips. Turn the mixture out onto n 8x8” baking dish that’s been lined with parchment paper. Tamp down on the mixture, using parchment paper on top if necessary, to make the granola bars as flat and compact as you can. Bake the bars for 30 minutes (they should be a golden brown). Allow to cool for 10 minutes in the pan and then, grasping the parchment, remove the bars to a cutting board. With a sharp knife, cut the bars into eight rectangular bars. Allow to cool completely and serve!

Why can’t we get enough of it? Overnight oats never get boring! The best part is that you can get so creative with your oats. You can always change it up by adding your favorite dried fruits, seeds, or nut butters.
I currently love overnight oats with cashew milk, Siggi’s coconut Skyr, and topped with a whole lot of fresh fruit and of course, OMG granola.
I posted this recipe back in September, but here it is again (with a few updates):
• 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats•1/3 cup cashew milk (or any non-dairy milk) • 1/4 coconut flavored Siggi’s Skyr • 1/2 banana, smashed • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract • 1 teaspoon chia seeds • 1 dash of cinnamon • Handful blueberries • Handful raisins
Mix these ingredients in a mason jar and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, top your oats with OMG granola, fresh fruit, and nuts of choice (that’s just a start!)
PS- Don’t know what to do with all the new trendy toppings like hemp seeds, bee pollen, cocoa nibs, etc..? Try a touch of them on top of your overnight oats!
We love fresh pressed juice and we love breakfast bowls, so we decided to get creative on you.
Left with all this pulp after making a batch of fresh juice? Well, have found a solution to incorporate the leftover pulp into our morning bowl of granola and yogurt!
In a powerful blender (e.g. Vitamix or BlendTec) blend the following: 1 pineapple, 2 beets, 2 large carrots, 1 pear, a 1-inch knob of ginger, 1 blood orange (peel removed), 1 lemon (peel removed) and ½ cup of pomegranate juice. You may have to do this in batches to accommodate all of the fruit and vegetables.
Pass the juice through a strainer, using a spatula to help the process along. You’ll end up with 4 cups of red juice, and a few cups of juice pulp.
Stir the pulp into coconut-flavored yogurt (e.g. Siggi’s) for a tropical feel, and top with Oat My Goodness Sunrise granola. Enjoy!

- 1 Fuyu (or other large) apple
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon orange juice
- 1 teaspoon white sugar
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
- 2 tablespoons of butter, cold and cut into small pieces
- 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
- 4 tablespoons Oat My Goodness Bad Monkey granola
- 4 tablespoons of plain yogurt
- 1 heaping teaspoon of honey
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- (Optional – if you’d like a speckled yogurt, scrape some of the contents from a vanilla bean pod into the yogurt)
To make the crisp
- Peel and core the apple, cut it in half, and thinly slice each half crosswise.
- Divide the apple slices across two small cast iron or other small baking dishes (or one larger one), overlapping the slices to make a fan-like appearance.
- Squeeze the lemon and apple juice over the apples, and then sprinkle the apples with the white sugar. Scatter the cinnamon and nutmeg over the top, and gently, without disrupting the pattern, try to work some of the juice, sugar and spices between the apples. When you’re done, dot with the butter and crumble 1 tablespoon of brown sugar over each dish.
- Top with the granola and bake until bubbling; 350 degrees for 40 minutes (for smaller dishes) or 50 minutes for the larger dish.
- While the granola is baking, stir together the yogurt ingredients, and top the crisp when it comes out of the oven.

1 frozen banana
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
6 ice cubes
Blend all the ingredients together until it forms a smooth consistency. Top with 1 tsp. shaved coconut and ¼ cup OMG granola of choice. Enjoy!
- 1/2 cup of Oat My Goodness Sunrise granola
- 1 small container (approx. 6 oz) of yogurt. Best if you can find Siggi's spiced pear yogurt, but if you're starting with plain yogurt, use the equivalent amount of yogurt, and mix in a heaping tablespoon of honey, and a pinch of both ground cardamom and cinnamon.
- 1/3 pear, sliced
- 2 tablespoons of spiced cranberries, cooled (you can use purchased cranberry sauce in a pinch, but if you make it from scratch, you'll be able to control the sugar and spices, recipe to follow)
- 1 tablespoon of chopped macadamia nuts
To make the spiced cranberries
- In a small saucepan, stir ½ cup of cranberries, with ½ cup of fresh orange juice, 1/4 cup of packed light brown sugar, and a half teaspoon each of ground cardamom and cinnamon. Bring to a boil, and then turn down and simmer for 20 minutes until thickened. Cool and use for the parfait (you'll have some leftover for other uses.)
To make the parfait
In a large glass, small rounded bowl, or other type of glass, layer 1/3 of the granola. Follow with the spiced pear yogurt, and then a layer of sliced pears. Repeat the layers in reverse: yogurt, granola, and then finish the parfait with a little more yogurt, the spiced cranberries, and the chopped macadamia nuts.

- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened
- 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup Oat My Goodness Vintage granola
- 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chunks
To make the cookies
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and prepare two baking sheets by lining them with parchment paper.
- Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Beat together butter, sugars, and vanilla in a medium bowl with an electric mixer at high speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes, then beat in egg until combined well. Reduce speed to low, then add flour mixture and mix until just combined. Stir in granola and chocolate chunks.
- Using an ice cream scoop, scoop equal portions of dough onto your prepared baking sheets. Make sure to space the dough at least an inch and a half apart so that they cookies will have room to spread in the oven. If using full-sized cookie sheets, you should end up with about 6 cookies per sheet.
- Bake the cookies, switching position of sheets halfway through baking, until pale golden, about 15 minutes. Cool on sheets for a few minutes, and then transfer to racks to cool completely.

I love this recipe because it's an exciting take on oatmeal. You can never go wrong with a traditional bowl of oatmeal, but the crunchy Vintage granola adds great texture and flavor. Especially now that fall is kicking in, this morning bowl really hits the spot.
- 1/4 steel cut oats
- 1 cup milk of choice (I like to use cashew milk)
- 1/2 banana, smashed
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 tbsp. cinnamon
- 1 handful of raisins
- 3 figs
- 1/4 cup of Vintage
Combine the oats, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Cook oats as directed on package. Towards the end of the cooking process, add the smashed banana and raisins to allow the ingredients to simmer together.
Pour the cooked oats into a bowl. Top with figs and Vintage (or your other favorite OMG flavor!)
I love oats in all forms. If it's not a yogurt parfait, it's overnight oats in my breakfast bowl. I love to whip up this easy recipe at night and the best part- it's ready for me in the morning. It's a great grab-and-go option on a busy morning.
- 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1/3 cup cashew milk (or any non-dairy milk)
- 1/4 plain non-fat Greek yogurt
- 1/2 banana, smashed
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 dash of cinnamon
- Handful blueberries
- Handful raisins (or cranberries)
Mix yogurt, non-dairy milk, banana, and vanilla extract together in a mason jar. Add the remaining ingredients and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning top your oats with Oat My Goodness granola for some extract crunch and fresh fruit of choice. Enjoy!
Summer fruits are our absolute favorite, so we have been taking advantage of them anyway we can! I made some cherry preserves that I cannot wait to enjoy for breakfast and dessert. It was so simple to make and turned out delicious!
- 1 pint of fresh red cherries
- 4 tablespoons of sugar
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
Pitt the cherries. On medium-low heat, bring the cherries, sugar, and vanilla extract to a simmer. Allow cherries to soften, which should take about 30 minutes. Once the cherry juice has thickened, remove from the heat.
My favorite way to enjoy this treat is over a grilled peach and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Sprinkle Vintage granola on top and there you have it.. a delicious summertime dessert that is sure to impress your guests!
First, take your pick. Bad Monkey.. Sunrise.. or Vintage. Then, pour in over the Greek yogurt and blueberries. Last but not least, enjoy.
Thats how the attendees of Fusion Fest taste tested Oat My Goodness granola post their Core Fusion class. It was a great night spreading the love to both the Women’s Health team as well as Exhale members.
I blame my yogurt obsession on granola. You can always find me in the grocery store’s dairy aisle, looking for the best new yogurt.
Although I love a simple plain Greek yogurt, sometimes I am in the mood for something more interesting. Many flavored yogurts are packed with sugar and other added ingredients, so this morning I decided to get creative and make my own.
With just three ingredients, I whipped up a delicious banana vanilla favored yogurt:
6 oz. non-fat plain Greek yogurt
1/3 ripe banana, smashed
1 tsp. vanilla extract
In a small bowl, fold the ingredients together. I topped it off with Vintage granola and fresh berries. To say the least, I can’t wait for tomorrow morning.
The real question is— what should I pair my Oat My Goodness with today? Well, good thing is that options are endless...yogurt, milk, froyo, or cottage cheese, just to name a few. Or maybe even straight up?
