I promised to show you how to make food, generally bought ready-made, at home from basic ingredients.
I thought it would be appropriate to start of with breakfast. A recipe I heard of a few years ago revolutionised my life. I know……sounds dramatic, BUT it just created a zing for me in the mornings. And best of all everyone in my household liked it as well, which is always a bonus for mummy.
It’s a granola recipe created by Cindy O’meara. She is such a gifted lady and has a website called http://changinghabits.com.au/ Absolutely brilliant, so please check out her wisdom as well.
Anyway, back to the recipe. There are only 4 ingredients:
- Apple (1 whole)
That is it, CADA. All you do is, cut up the apple, dates and the almonds and mix it together with the shredded coconut. If you have a blender or food processor or even better a thermomix, you can use that to do the chopping.
If you feel a little adventurous, you could add some rolled oats as well and roast it for a short time in the oven. You might want to drizzle a mixture of water and honey over the top of it to make the oats crunchy. You can eat this granola with yoghurt.
For me, I eat it as is, for breakfast or a snack. Yum, yum.
