Chocolate Granola, Coconut and Greek Yoghurt

 

breakfast pot
Sometimes finding healthy breakfast ideas can get a bit tiresome, there’s only so many ways to eat an egg that will satisfy right, so I decided to get back to basics, being originally Greek Cypriot, creating a Greek yoghurt breakfast pot to get me excited about brekkie again!

So I flung together my favourite flavour combinations: chocolate, coconut and creamy, thick yoghurt to create a breakfast style pot. Oh with a strawberry on top!

It’s the same photo by the way but with different backgrounds as I couldn’t pick my favourite!

Granola is so quick and easy and you can pop it in a sealed container and it can last for a week or two, plus my kids love it (win, win unless you know,  you want it all for yourself 😉 )

Ingredients:

Granola (makes 15 servings)

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 125ml maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp honey (or more maple syrup if you prefer)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder (70% and above)
  • a sprinkle of cinnamon
  • 300g rolled oats

Additional ingredients:

  • Greek Yoghurt or Coconut Yoghurt (3/4 of a 500g pot for 2 servings)
  • Sprinkling of desiccated coconut
  • Strawberry

Method:

  • Heat oven to 150C/fan 130C/gas 2. Mix the oil, maple syrup, honey, cocoa powder, cinnamon and oats in a large bowl.
  • Place on 2 baking sheets and bake for 15 minutes then stir and bake for another 5-10 checking it doesn’t burn.

Once cooled place at the bottom of a glass then add yoghurt and a sprinkling of coconut, alternating until you reach the top. Dust with more coconut and add a strawberry on top.

Delicious, healthy and high in protein and slow releasing carbs. The perfect breakfast!

    I love all the background colors! I am loving the all white images for my blog, white background and surface, but I am going to start playing with color soon, and I love these. I am also pinning this recipe. I love yogurt parfaits and chocolate, what could be better! Thanks.

      Thanks so much, I was going to call it a parfait as it goes but I was told by google if it’s not frozen it doesn’t count! Glad you liked it, thanks 🙂

    Oh serious yum! I so miss granola on the GAPS diet. It is the one thing that I would never get bored of…that and yoghurt…but I am beginning to think that I don’t tolerate dairy which is a real pain in the behind! Fingers crossed I am wrong!

      Oh no Vicki, I hope you can and I really do love oats, I do hear great things about GAPS though, maybe you can reintroduce oats and yoghurt down the line xx

    Yum! Thanks for sharing this – I have all of those ingredients in my cupboard too, once my red velvet cake is done I am definitely giving this a go. Breakfast can be so boring, but this looks fab!

    Granola is one of my favourite snacks! I don’t tend to have it for breakfast, but I love it sprinkled over Greek yoghurt (what else?). I’ll definitely have a go at your chocolate version: the kids will love that!
