Dried Black Currants (Imported from Greece)
This is a pan cooked version to create a crunchy and toasty chocolate granola recipe. You can load this healthy cereal with your favourite nuts and seeds and add some cocoa powder for a chocolate edge. My favourites are almonds, apricot kernels, sunflower seeds and chia seeds. These nuts are full of good fats and omega 3 as well as healthy nutrients keeping your digestive system and immunity levels in tact. I include chia seeds into as many meals as possible, as these tiny little seeds are a wonderful super food known for their anti-oxidant properties and contain minerals such as Iron and zinc as well as fibre and protein.
Oats are a heart healthy wholegrain that help to lower cholestrol levels and are packed with fiber for our digestive health. Cinnamon helps create that toasty flavour and fills up your kitchen with a lovely aroma that gets your belly rumbling! I refer to cinnamon as a super spice and love to add a dash of it into my recipes due to its natural healing abilities as well as its versatility to be used in both savoury and sweet dishes.
Coconut oil is one of my preferred choice of oils due to its antiviral and antibacterial properties, boosting our immune system and acting as a natural anti-oxidant.
The use of blackcurrants and cranberries give a lovely soft texture in contrast with the crunchy nut taste as well as adding extra anti-oxidants in their fruity flavours.
This is a pre-prepared breakfast recipe that saves you time and effort in the mornings. It is made up of nuts, seeds, oats, fruit, orange juice and non dairy milk giving you a well rounded and healthy gluten-free breakfast. Oats are great soakage for the orange juice and coconut milk and provides a great source of fibre for digestive health and boosting energy. Sunflower seeds, apricot kernels and chia seeds deliver an excellent combination of anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals neceesary for your immunity and digestive systems, improving your overall well-being. The dried blackcurrants and cranberries offer another powerhouse of nutrition and anti-oxidant elements, setting you up for your day. Of course, you can never go wrong by adding a dash of cinnamon for its delicious taste and building up your immunity.
This is a simply delicious breakfast recipe and one of my favourites!
It will set you up nicely for the day or alternatively can be consumed as a dessert depending on your taste. It is made with oats and various nuts and seeds which allows you to use the nuts of your choice. I used almonds, apricot kernels, sunflower seeds, and chia seeds.
Oats are high in fibre helping your digestive health, and help you to release energy slowly throughout the day curbing those cravings and aiding in weight loss. Apricot kernels contains vitamin B17 and vitamin E making it high in anti-oxidants and increasing immunity levels. Chia seeds and sunflower seeds are packed with nutrients promoting immunity and digestive health. Almonds are rich in fiber and protein and are cholestrol free. The cinnamon and apple juice compliment each other in taste and help to warm the belly on those colder mornings. The dried cranberries and black currants not only add a great flavour to the crunchy nutty texture but are also full of nutrients and anti-oxidants. The great thing about granola is that you can eat it alone as a snack, or mix it with natural yogurt and fruit or pour it on top of your oatmeal as part of your breakfast.
