This is one of our favourite breakfasts at the moment. It's full of antioxidants, good fats and keeps you full for longer. I like mine with yogurt, while hubs like his with almond milk.
I like to see breakfast as a meal to arm us for the day. The calm before the storm perhaps. There is just something about a good breakfast that makes the day so much nicer, and much more special.
While we are not eliminating grains altogether (read paleo for more information), we do try to limit it. This is a good alternative, and perhaps to us, a even better alternative to the usual oat based granola or muesli.
Coconut Almond Walnut Granola
1 cup of coconut flakes or chips
1/4 cup of coconut oil
1.5 cup of almonds
1.5 cup of walnuts
2 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp of mixed spice
(try experimenting it with macadamias, pepitas and sunflower seeds)
Preheat oven to 160 C. In a bowl, mix everything together. Pour to baking tray. Bake for 20 minutes to 30 minutes - or as brown as you like it to be.
