This is a virtually awesome, absolutely delicious breakfast idea from Luke Hines and Scott Gooding’s new book Clean Living Quick & Easy. It contains high-protein nuts, chocolatey goodness from cacao, and tart raspberries, topped with creamy whipped coconut cream.
4 cups coconut flakes
1 cup roughly chopped blanched almonds
1 cup roughly chopped walnuts
1 cup roughly chopped cashews
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
3/4 cup raw cacao powder
1/4 cup cacao nibs
coconut cream, to serve
50g fresh raspberries, to serve
To prepare the cacao granola, preheat your oven to 110ºC and line a baking tray with baking paper.
Combine the coconut flakes, almonds, walnuts, cashews, cinnamon, nutmeg, coconut oil, cacao powder and cacao nibs well, then spread evenly on the tray.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, giving the mix a bit of a shake-up halfway through the cooking time.
When it’s golden brown and crunchy, take it out of the oven and set aside to cool on the tray.
To serve, top the granola with some coconut cream and fresh raspberries.
