23rd February 2016 Helen 4Comment

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.

  1. I must give this a try. I had most of the ingredients in the press. Do you want some walnuts Helen?I have about 8 kilos (incl. shells) in the cellar, the remains of over 40 kilos we had from our tree in the autumn, I’ll post you some if you’re interested.

    1. A measure of it’s tastiness Maura – I was away for a week for work and my husband ran out of granola and actually googled my blog (for the first time ever) to look up the recipe! I’m still tweaking based on the ingredients I have to hand but I’m very partial to the nut butters as an addition.
