Salted Cacao And Almond Butter Granola
My salted cacao and almond butter granola is caramelly, crunchy and nutty. Get ready to get addicted to breakfast!
Granola is such a great way to start the day, however, shop varieties can be laden with sugar and additives, leading to a blood sugar spike and afternoon slump. It’s much better to just whip your own, like this Cacao And Almond Butter Granola. It’s a heavenly mash up of Reece’s and coco pops and will keep you energised and ready to smash out your tasks, throughout the day. Cacao is the key ingredient to the success here. Nutrient dense, full of antioxidants, magnesium, potassium and iron, its the perfect rocket fuel to charge you up for the day ahead.
Granola is very straight forward and easy to make. You mix everything together in one bowl then throw it into the oven at a low temp until crispy. Done! Honestly it can’t get any easier. Pop your coco ‘nola into jars, where it will keep for two weeks (we doubt its gonna last that long). Serve it with milk or yogurt and some berries if you like.
When it comes to bulking out the granola with nuts and seeds, use whatever takes your fancy. I like a combo of linseeds, sesame seeds and hemp seeds, all known for their high protein, essential fats and vitamins.
