In Croatia, an innocent bowl of granola with chocolate hidden in it led to a full-blown obsession with chocolate breakfast cereals. This is my attempt at a healthy version.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4 tablespoons coconut oil
4 tablespoons smooth or crunchy peanut butter
4 tablespoons maple syrup
200g rolled oats
150g roughly chopped nuts, (hazelnuts pecans, almonds and walnuts are all good options)
80g sesame seeds
60g cacao nibs
10 medjool dates
30g coconut flakes

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
nut milk and fresh fruit of your choice

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Melt the coconut oil, peanut butter and maple syrup together in a medium-sized saucepan. Add the oats, nuts, sesame seeds and cacao nibs to the pan and stir until evenly coated.
  3. Spread the oat mix on a baking tray and bake for 15 minutes. During this time, remove the pits from the dates and finely chop into tiny pieces. It’s best if you keep a wet cloth nearby so you can wipe your sticky fingers and sticky knife occasionally.
  4. Add the dates and coconut to the oat mix, stir, and bake for another 5 minutes, keeping an eye on it as the coconut can burn very quickly. Allow to cool on the tray and then store in an airtight container. It will keep at room temperature for 1–2 weeks.
  5. When ready to eat, serve with a nut milk of your choice and whatever fresh fruit you have available.
