I absolutely love this matcha granola breakfast. It’s so simple, really tasty and provides a healthy start to the day
It’s even something you can have on-the-go, if the granola has been made up previously. And let me tell you this granola is well worth making – with only 5 ingredients and a super easy method it would be madness to not have a batch of this in the cupboard at all times.
So with matcha being the new thing in my cupboard I’m trying to come up with a few recipes it can be used in. It’s such a great flavour, has a wonderful bright green colour, and it also has the benefits of lots of antioxidants and a lower caffeine content than standard tea or coffee (although it still has a bit for a little kick start). The best thing, however, is that it makes great granola that goes amazing well with a bit of yogurt and some blueberries – delicious!
The granola is best prepared in a bowl to ensure all the ingredients are well combined before turning out onto a baking tray. Depending on how much granola you’re making, try and keep it all together on one section of the tray and at least 1 cm deep. Also, remember to keep checking the granola whilst its cooking – breaking it up and turning it over will help it cook and colour more evenly.
A quick note on what I’m up to at the moment: Last week I started a 4 week professional cookery course (click here to find out more and follow what I’m doing at Ashburton Cookery School). This means that a lot of my time is currently being taken up by cooking, which is just how I would like life to be all the time. However, I will be going back to my research job mid-March but I should be returning as a qualified chef!! So exciting!! While I’m spending time trying to improve my cooking it will mean recipes for the blog may not be as frequent. Luckily I still have a couple that I prepared earlier – of course!! 🙂 And hopefully I’ll find the time to write these up and get them posted. Enjoy the matcha granola!
