A tasty granola that doesn’t come with a mile long list of ingredients. Honey, tahini and cocoa powder are the main players, resulting in a healthy and wholesome breakfast.
As you already know from this post here, granola is one of my favourite breakfasts. This time I thought I’d go for a chocolate version, as it’s something I’ve been meaning to try for a while. That got me wondering what flavour combination would be best. Finally I decided on tahini, as there is no question that it goes wonderfully with chocolate. It’s also very healthy, and as I’d used it in granola in the past I knew it would work. I purposely kept the ingredient list sensible, as I can get really carried away when making granola. Not everyone has stashes of millet, wheat germ and buckwheat in their cupboards (yes, it’s that bad)!
One of the things I really liked about this version is the lack of intense sweetness. Don’t get me wrong, I love me my sweet granolas. But this was a welcome change. At first I hadn’t realised it would be that different, so I had a bowlful with buttermilk, which is my all time favourite accompaniment. Somehow it didn’t taste right. When I tried it with milk however, I loved it. That made me think that the sourness of the buttermilk was too much without the counteracting sweetness of my other granolas. A few days later I discovered the absolute best combination for this version, which is with Greek yogurt and tinned peaches. Well. That, my friends, crossed the border into dessert territory. A tasty, healthy dessert. What more can one ask for?
