Today I’m so excited to share with you one of my all time favourite, best of the best recipes. One that I make weekly and enjoy nearly everyday. It’s just so tasty, so simple and very nourishing. Last year and this year has been very busy – third year uni and building a house were not meant to be done at the same time but I made sure I always had my jar of granola filled and hey, I made it through! A tasty, healthy breakfast can help you achieve a lot of things.
Today I’m writing from a sunny little nook in Wensleydale. Such a beautiful winters day here, still, sunny with the tiniest chill in the air, perfect. Coming back to here always provides a sense of peacefulness, which after the past few weeks I definitely need. I get to spend time with friends and family I haven’t seen in ages, try out some recipes I haven’t gotten around to yet and have different scenery to take some photos in. I might even get a moment to read my book near the fire
This wagon wheel idea came to me as soon as I saw Table of Plenty’s rice cakes. The shape and the colour just screamed ‘healthy wagon wheels’, and I was more than happy to do so, I knew they could only be delicious.
Super simple and full of great real ingredients they turned out better than I’d even expected. Plus they are oh so pretty. The rice cakes are crunchy and with a touch of sweetness plus they are >> wholegrain, gluten free, fructose friendly and all natural. They soften a bit if you leave the cashew and jam filling in there for a while, equally as yummy as when they are crunchy.
When I want an iced chocolate I want the real deal. Actual chocolate. Made from cacao beans. None of this sugary syrup stuff. And I personally like mine made with almond milk. This iced chocolate as simple as it is, is pretty hard to find. But don’t despair because you can make it for yourself >> healthier, yummier and cheaper.
Here is it. The famous, (well at my yoga classes anyway) the delicious, APPLE CINNAMON GRANOLA !
Granola is a staple in my kitchen. I always have to have a jar of it otherwise my kitchen feels naked, (same goes for my seed crackers). This is my go to breakfast, topping and snack.
Warning : It granola is very, very moorish. Like pour the amount you are going to eat and then lock the granola in a cupboard moorish ツ
