Nutty Granola

Nutty Granola

Dont you just love granola? I havent made or had granola for breakfast for a long long time and that had to change. So I made a batch last weekend and guess what its nearly all gone.

Now Im not the only one eating it in my house. Theres also Alex the Gayola lover. He absolutely loves it. It takes him a while to chew each bite because of all the nuts but he loves it anyway.

BTW do you like nutty or fruity granola. i am more of a nut person but like the addition of fruit too. I might make a fruit version of this soon.

Like I said this is quite nutty so if you want to change it up a bit just take out some nuts and replace with oats.

Enjoy.

Granola Cups

Granola Cups

What is  your go to breakfast?

Mine has got to be granola cups. They are so quick and easy to do that my monkeys and I have them nearly every weekend.

I am not sure how I came up with the idea for these but I guess I am always looking for something delicious to give my little ones and they do love it.

You can change up the recipe as you wish and replace the coconut with any other chopped nuts, the maple syrup with agave syrup and add dried fruit if you want. Fill them with your favourite yoghurt or smoothie. Top them with any berries or other fruit there are no limits to your creativity. These are so versatile and you can see from my Instagram pots that I had them in all sorts of varieties.

The best thing is they are refined sugar free and of course vegan.

So have a go and let me know what you think. please also tag me in Instagram if you do post a picture as I am very curious and would love to see your  creations.

Recipe is below

Valentines Day – Just my humble opinion

Valentines Day – Just my humble opinion

Just my humble opinion…
So today is Valentine’s Day and I am not sure how I feel about that. I see all these beautify photos on Instagram of heart-shaped dishes from cookies to pancakes to full sized cakes and so many many other lovely treats. To be honest I love the look of all of them and the creativity and thought behind them.
And I just love the colour pink so anything pink I see (or maybe most pink things) I love.

When you go out to the shops today you see all these men rushing around buying roses and chocolates. And I can’t help but thinking isn’t this all a bit silly?

Is it because we never do anything like that (my other half and me), I don’t get flowers or chocolates and we don’t go out for a romantic dinners on Valentine’s Day.
But honestly who does?

I think if I came home with some pink cake or chocolates I’d be getting very highly raised eyebrows.

I remember the only time I got a present (roses a big teddy and chocolates) on Valentine’s Day was the very first year I was going out with my significant other, and I think the pressure of it all got to him.

Breakfast Bowl

On the other hand, my little James came home yesterday with a handmade Valentines Card for his dad, brother and mum and I thought that was so cute. They made them in school yesterday and now it’s on my kitchen press.

The girls in the office had the idea of making our own cards this year, too. And so we did.

But is anybody really taking today seriously. Are there people out there who would spend a fortune going out for dinner and buying expensive presents? I am sure there are, otherwise restaurants wouldn’t be fully booked tonight and the guys would be running around buying all that stuff.

Anyway Ill be off to Instagram now looking at all the pink heart shaped food and maybe next year, if I don’t forget Ill create something myself and post the recipe her. Until then you have my delicious pink breakfast bowl to look at which I made today and it coincided with the pinkest day of the year. HAHA
