This recipe is part of my Kick Start 2018 series.
DESERT FOR BREAKFAST?! I don’t think you can really beat this! This is one of those recipes that feels so naughty, but is balanced, nutritious and the perfect way to kick start a long day. I’m going to give you two recipes today. The first is a perfect granola recipe: crunchy, chewy and flavoursome. It’s so easy to make, takes less than half an hour and protects you from all the extra crap that comes in standard cereal. You can serve it in many ways – with milk, yoghurt, or however you like – but today, I’m going to show you a next-level breakfast…CRUMBLE. In under 10 minutes, you can whip up something magical to perfectly round off your granola. Check out the crumble recipe and be prepared for your tastebuds to explode.Granola Ingredients (Quantities are rough – pimp it however you like)
- 4 handfuls of Oats
- 2 handfuls of Mixed Seeds
- 2 handfuls of Mixed Nuts, roughly chopped
- 1 tablespoon of Cinamon
- 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 2 tablespoons of Honey
- 2 handfuls of dried Mixed Fruit (I use raisins and cranberries)
- 1 handful of Coconut Flakes
- Preheat the oven to 200℃. Combine the oats, seeds, nuts, cinamon, olive oil and honey in a bowl. Distribute evenly on a baking tray and bake for 15 minutes, or until everything is deliciously golden and beautiful. The kitchen will smell incredible!
- Remove the tray from the oven and leave to cool for a few minutes. Add the dried fruit and coconut, give it a final stir and pour your epic granola into an airtight container. This will last for at least a few weeks!
Apple and Berry Crumble Ingredients (Serves 1)
- 3 tablespoons of Granola
- 1 Apple, chopped into 1cm chunks
- 1 small handful of Frozen Mixed Berries
- 2 teaspoons of Cinamon
- 1 teaspoon of Honey
- 2 tablespoons of Fat Free Greek Yoghurt, to serve
- Get a saucepan on a high heat. Throw in the apple and a nice splash of water, along with the cinamon. Cook the apple for 5 minutes, making sure all the water doesn’t completely evaporate.
- Add the berries to the apple with the honey and cook for a further 3-4 minutes, until everything is soft and shiny. Spoon the heavenly combination into a bowl, pile on the crumble topping and dollop a bit of yoghurt on the side. You’re going to love this one!
Here’s an idea…
Mix up the fruit! Try with pear or whatever else you fancy. You’re also welcome to pimp the granola however you like; more or less nuts, seeds or fruit. This is your crumble, so make it your own!
