Shake Up Your Wake Up : Chocolate Granola recipe

Another day, another breakfast - time to dip into the Farmhouse Breakfast Week hamper again. Yes, I know it's been and gone but we didn't have time to eat everything within one week so we're still going strong ! No complaints here!

This sachet of scrummy looking Chocolate Granola leapt out at me today because I could see oodles of chocolate chips, raisins and walnuts mixed in there. Yum !

The recipe is available on the Shake Up Your Wake Up website :

200g jumbo oats
75g walnut pieces roughly chopped (or other nuts such as macadamia)
1 tsp cocoa powder
100g raisins
25g plain chocolate chips

How to make it
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C, gas mark 4.  
  2. Place the oats, walnuts and cocoa in a large baking tray and spread evenly out.  
  3. Bake for 5 minutes.  
  4. Allow to cool.  
  5. Stir in raisins and chocolate chips.  
  6. Serve with milk topped with sliced banana.
You could swap the cocoa with drinking chocolate and try either milk or white chocolate chips.  For added indulgence add extra chocolate chips or nuts.

Adding cocoa is a genius idea because it gives you chocolatey milk which makes it much more appealing to kids. It's not very sweet which I like, but for the kids, a drizzle of honey or added banana may be called for.
