Like anyone with a toddler, I’ve been through so many different breakfast options. Something that is a favourite one week isn’t the next.
Yoghurt and fruit has always been a firm favourite that never seems to get tired though so at least I always have that to fall back on. That said, I usually prefer him to have a little more in his tummy to start the day. I have been known to give him a homemade muffin or banana bread in desperation! Whatever works I say and given I add very little sugar to them I figure it’s OK every now and then.
At the moment we have a few different breakfasts on rotation. Porridge, CADA and apple and cinnamon pancakes seem to all work for the moment.
But I wanted something else to have that was quick to prepare on those busy mornings. So I’ve done a bit of experimenting and come up with this fabulous granola mix. The best thing is that it doesn’t have any dried fruit so is low in sugar. But it’s packed with vitamins, minerals and healthy fats and is a perfect breakfast food. Add some milk, yoghurt and fresh fruit and it’s a yummy, crunchy breakfast.
Make up a batch to store in a jar and it will last a few weeks.
