We believe it’s NOT about cutting carbs - especially at breakfast. Why? Because your body has no way of getting the fibre it needs for long term health. There are many benefits to a high fibre diet, including helping to control blood sugar levels and maintaining a healthy weight…. So why skip a good thing?
Our go to source for fibre in the morning is jumbo oats, which form the base of all our granolas. You’ll also find them in our latest breakfast bar recipe along with a variety of dried fruits, nuts and flaxseeds (aka prebiotics) for a healthy gut.
Enjoy making in big batches and enjoy for breakfast or a mid-morning snack.
- 90g rolled oats
- 100g dried coconut
- 159g mixed dried fruit and nuts
- 35g flax seeds
- 7 tablespoons butter or coconut oil
- 170g honey
- 25g coconut sugar
- 75g dark chocolate
Grease and line a 9-inch square baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large skillet over low to medium heat, toast the rolled oats, coconut, mixed dried fruit and nuts and flax seeds stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes or until golden. Be careful not to burn the mixture.
Transfer to a metal bowl and set aside to cool.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, cook the butter, honey, and brown sugar.
Stir constantly for 3 to 4 minutes or until sugar has dissolved.
Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer, without stirring, for 5 minutes.
Add the hot butter mixture to the dry ingredients. Stir well until combined.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared baking pan.
Use the back of a large metal spoon to press the mixture down firmly and evenly.
Melt the chocolate in a bowl and use a spoon to drizzle the chocolate over the mixture.
Allow to cool and then cut into 9 squares.
