If you’re looking for a nutritious and convenient breakfast that tastes great then I highly recommend you invest some time into preparing a big stash of Jamie Oliver’s Granola dust. After seeing it on Jamie’s Facebook page a couple of years back, we decided to give it a whirl and loved it.
I don’t know about you but I have to opt for quick and easy in the mornings. In the past I have tried getting up early to prepare myself a nice omelette and occasionally even a juicy steak but it’s always short lived, and I eventually revert back to skipping breakfast or just grabbing a piece of fruit.
In the summer I opt for a smoothie every morning, and in the winter I have porridge but occasionally it would be nice to have a bowl of something a little more crunchy!! Thats where Jamie’s granola comes in.
This is the recipe below and HERE is a link to his video on how to prepare it.
Jamie Oliver’s Granola Dust
Porridge Oats – 1kg
Mixed Nuts – 250g
Mixed Seeds – 100g
Dried Fruit – 250g
Ground Coffee – 1 tablespoon
Cocoa Powder – 3 tablespoons
- Toast oats, seeds and nuts for 10-15 minutes at 180c to intensify the flavour
- Put everything into a blender (or do in batches) and blend until finely mixed
- Pour into a jar and will last up to a month or so.
- Serve with fresh fruit, some yoghurt and a little milk – a perfectly healthy balanced breakfast.
Cheers Jamie. Keep the great ideas coming please 🙂
