Creamy Skyr with granola and berries

Creamy Skyr with granola and berries

Starting the day off right is important, and the way to do it is with a tasty breakfast. Deliciously creamy and perfectly crunchy, this combination of thick and filling Skyr with homemade and oven-baked granola or muesli, is the ideal start to an active day or as a tasty treat or snack. Sweet and sour berries, sticky honey, crispy seeds, sweet vanilla, and flavourful oats and quinoa are brought together to a crunchy and tasty granola, perfectly topped on your creamy, mild yet sour Skyr.


  • Mix quinoa, coconut flour, oats, and all other dry ingredients in a bowl
  • Put baking paper on a baking tray and spread out the mixture evenly
  • Top the mixture evenly with honey and butter
  • Roast the granola in the middle of the oven – stir from time to time
  • Let the granola cool off on the baking paper on a grate
  • Mix cranberries, goji berries and vanilla powder into the granola and store in an airtight container
  • Serve on top of Arla Skyr in a bowl and enjoy.

For perfectly crunchy granola, make sure not to bake the mixture in the oven at too high temperatures. This might cause it to burn before it dries up to get all nice and crispy. Use lower temperatures and keep an eye on it, stirring from time to time to help it brown evenly. To keep granola crispy and flavourful, make sure it cools off completely before putting it in a container. Also, make sure to store it in a sealed container in a dry place at room temperature. Humidity or moisture will cause the granola to go soggy and maybe lose some of its flavour.


It is also possible to freeze granola. Make sure the granola has cooled to room temperature, then place it in an airtight container or Ziploc bag and keep it in the freezer for up to six months. Defrost overnight on the counter.

Questions about skyr with granola and berries

Ready to venture into making homemade granola and savouring it on deliciously creamy skyr? Then read our questions and answers about skyr and granola below.

How to make berry and granola skyr?
Making skyr with granola only requires two things: a bowl of fresh, cold, and creamy skyr, and a batch of the best crunchy granola. It is possible to add compotes, fresh fruit or berries, or the like on top to give it some more freshness. Otherwise, put skyr in a bowl and top with your favourite crunchy granola – homemade, oven-baked oats, seeds, nuts, dried berries, honey, oil or butter, and sweet vanilla to complement the deliciously crunchy bake.
How to make baked granola?
Making homemade granola requires oats, oil, nuts, seeds, dried berries or fruit and a binding agent. The best binding agent for granola is honey, but also egg, brown sugar, syrup, or gelled chia seeds. Mix all ingredients except for fruit and berries and easily burned ingredients like coconut flakes. The latter is added mid-baking, while berries and fruit are added when the granola has cooled down completely. Bake in the oven until brown and crispy, let cool, and store in an airtight container.
Which berries to use for skyr?
Berries with a lot of flavour are always a good choice for a bowl of skyr. Use dried berries for granola to avoid making it soggy and go bad. Pick and choose between dried berries like sour cranberry, goji berry, or raspberry, sweet strawberry or blueberry, or even dried fruit like mango, papaya, pineapple, and melon. You can also choose fresh fruit or berries as a topping for skyr, making it feel deliciously fresh and light.

A bowl of skyr with granola and berries to start the day right

Breakfast has to be quick, easy, and delicious. A bowl of skyr topped with granola filled with berries, seeds, oats, and much more checks all the boxes. Make the granola ahead and store it in an airtight container for 1-2 months or the freezer for up to six months; delicious and ready to provide a crunchy and flavourful topping on skyr.

Savour the combination of creamy skyr and crunchy granola

Skyr is delicious in itself but combining it with something crunchy makes it even better. Adding sweetness and tanginess to that crunch with goji berries, cranberries, and vanilla means adding an edge to the well-known and loved breakfast topping. Skyr is thick, creamy, and very delicious, making it perfect for breakfast; especially with crunchy, sweet, and fresh toppings. But why only enjoy skyr and granola in a bowl? Try our recipe for skyr ice lollies with granola and berries or frozen skyr bark, adding granola on top before freezing; both are perfect for a light snack or a refreshing and new type of breakfast.

Experiment with your baked granola ingredients

Making homemade granola lets you decide on your favourite flavours. Go your own way and experiment with your favourite berries, seeds, nuts, and sweet spices like vanilla, cinnamon, and cardamom. Also, mix in chocolate chips after cooling for a sweet treat right from early morning; for example, a mix of white, milk and dark chocolate to get both sweet, fresh, and slightly bitter flavours.

A fresh take on a classic breakfast

Creamy and popular, skyr is the perfect way to shake things up for breakfast. Granola for breakfast is nothing new, but instead of the usual plain yogurt or milk, try our fresh take on a classic breakfast with a bowl of creamy and thick skyr with granola. Crunchy granola is, indeed, a classic for breakfast in itself, but it can be turned into more than that with added berries, seeds, and the sweet flavour of vanilla. Making it yourself means making it better; you will get much more flavour and texture from the freshly baked granola since you chose and prepped all the ingredients yourself.
