Trade in your tired bowl of cereal for a combination of tart yogurt, juicy pears, sweet dates and honey, and crunchy pomegranate seeds. It’s a simple, inspired breakfast that can be made in 15 minutes or less, and can easily be doubled to serve a brunch crowd. Add our Granola recipe for an extra crunch and more filling cup. For a fancier presentation, use small glasses for individual servings.
