Granola Breakfast Bowl

A tasty start to the day with fruit, yoghurt and homemade granola. All available here in store.

You will need:-

Fruit puree (I have used apple and strawberry but also available in prune, apple, pear and various other flavours)

Sojade soya yoghurt (would also work well with greek style dairy, or coconut yoghurt)

Granola – I have used sunflower and pumpkin seeds, cranberries, macademia, almonds and gluten free oats, all mixed with coconut oil and agave syrup, then toasted lightly for 25 minutes on a lined baking tray.

To prepare your breakfast bowls add a tablespoon of your fruit puree to the base of a bowl or large cup

Pour 4 tablespoons of yoghurt over the fruit puree

Top with your granola, and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning, you can add any extra toppings such as peanut butter, fresh chopped fruit, a drizzle of honey or more nuts or seeds.
