My search for tasty and easy food has seen breakfast time over-hauled. We’ve not entirely abandoned our Breakfast Frittata, but in search of a bit of variety two or three weekday mornings we’ve been testing a few Granola recipes. Here’s this weeks medley: a warming Coconut, Cinnamon, Seed and Nut Granola. Served up with a few scoops of Greek or Natural Yoghurt, it’s yum.
I’ve been making these large tubs of Granola up on a Sunday afternoon when the oven is on anyway. It’s all very ad hoc with a glass of wine in hand ! It takes about five minutes to make and 30 minutes to toast. A large tub like this lasts us a week or so. I like this version as the cinnamon gives it a cosey taste on these cold mornings. Also the Chia seeds – which had long lurked in the press, give it a lovely crunch. The coconut means it’s nice and sweet but you can always drizzle a little honey, maple syrup or agave nectar over it if you like.
Kiddie verdict: the smallest eats it only because he’ll eat anything that wasn’t specifically put out for him. The others roundly reject it – without tasting it. They’re good like that.
