Healthy Ingredients from your pantry

I decided to clean out my pantry by adding a few bibs and bobs of healthy ingredients I had leftover. The wet ingredients has a base of soaked dates, maple syrup and peanut butter. If you like a chewier granola, go ahead and add a bit more syrup or nut butter.

Obviously, organic rolled oats, nuts, coconut flakes and dried berries forms part of the dry ingredients. I added cocoa powder for this chocolate granola version, and a bit of melted dark chocolate when served takes it to a new level!

Granola could be dessert

I love this Vegan Chocolate Granola recipe so much, as a matter of fact – fill those bowls and dig in as an after dinner treat.  Who says you can’t have breakfast for dessert?  Add your own toppings like fresh fruit, berry coulis, chia seeds or roasted nuts.

Don’t you just love the beautiful Le Creuset set I used on the shoot? I love the stainless steel balloon whisk and not even to mention the gorgeous color (Marseilles), of the ceramics?
