Here’s a classy dessert that you can make in a flash! Layering a stovetop vanilla pudding with Love Crunch gives you the best of both worlds: the creaminess of the pudding and the crunchiness of the granola. Nature’s Path recommends you use organic ingredients whenever possible.

Ingredients

2/3 cup sugar
