The long awaited recipe is finally here! Have you ever had those self doubt days? Well, mine was this past week. A while before, I had planned the shoot and had everything ready for that day. I did the shoot as usual and the problem started when I was editing. I really thought that my photos looked like crap!
It was so upsetting that I decided to even reschedule the post date because I wanted to re-edit the pics. Mind you, I had edited those photos for close to 4 hrs the first time!I ended up re-editing and still wasn’t happy but I talked myself out of it! I realized was doubting and judging myself too much. Now I look at them and I am pleased with what I created.
Now that I postponed the post date, this is the perfect time to put it up! Mother’s day is in less than a day and we need to appreciate our mothers. My mother is the nicest and most caring. Of course she is strict but her advise has helped me through some rough times. If it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t have even started blogging! She was my first hamster for my weird food experiments, that is when my food was crap. I actually love feeding her so the perfect way to start her day on Mother’s day is breakfast in bed. The first contender is this Chocolate Granola.
The Chocolate Granola will satisfy all your chocolate cravings in the morning. Sweet, chocolatey and crunchy, over fruits, milk or yogurt. Whose mama wouldn’t enjoy that? I will even make myself some on the side because it is really good! The good thing about granola, is that it has a long shelf life. It can last up to a month in an airtight container. No need to make little batches at a time. Make a huge batch and not think about it for a while!
If you want to make different flavors, you can try my Homemade Granola recipe. You can also customize with fruits and nuts of your choice!
Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl. Ensure the oats are coated in the cocoa.
Separately, mix honey and chocolate spread and pour over the oat mixture. (If the honey - chocolate spread is too thick, add a dash of milk to give it a smoother consistency)
In a pan, heat the pan and add oil. Toast the mixture on medium - low heat for 10 minutes as you mix.
Serve the granola over yogurt (preferably Greek yogurt) or milk.
Store the granola in an airtight container for up to 1 month.
