Breakfast - we all need it....

Good morning

I hope you all had a great Monday evening. 

Now that the majority of us are back from holiday, the diets will begin for Christmas (yes I know it is not that far away) and I know that we all have breakfast cereals in our kitchens at work or even on our desks.  

The one that I could never get my head around was Granola.  Although a few years back Pret showed me how delicious it could be mixed with yoghurt etc.  It is now a breakfast staple in a lot of restaurants as it is seen as very healthy for you and it fills you up for the day. 

Are you a granola girl or more of a Kellogs Crunchy nut kind of a girl....  Have a look below at some of the places you can pick up great granola. Go on give it a try.....

Granola, Ottolenghi
The granola king, this contains Brazil nuts and bite-sized clusters of oats sweetened with light muscovado sugar and maple syrup. The bag is small and expensive but a quarter-cup-sized portion sprinkled on plain yoghurt is superb.

£7/500g, Ottolenghi, ottolenghi.co.uk/shop

Lizi’s Organic Granola
This deliciously nutty, seedy, toasted oaty mouthful is naturally sweetened, raisin-free and makes the perfect topping for a bowl of berries and yoghurt.

£4.99/500g bag available from Wholefoods Market, Honest to Goodness, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s; lizis.co.uk

Berry Granola, Dorset Cereals
So luxurious it’s almost a pudding, this new cereal is a tumble of baked, syrup-sweetened seed and oat clusters and lots of intensely flavoured freeze-dried berries.

£3.79/550g box from most supermarkets; dorsetcereals.co.uk

Organic Yorkshire Granola With Seeds And Cereal, Side Oven Bakery
A gentle but flavoursome mix of honey-roasted oats and seeds which works as an excellent base for fruit compôtes. The hazelnuts and mixed berries version is also good.

£3.74/500g, available online from sideoven.com, arriving in London soon

Honey Nut 7-grain Granola, Rude Health
Made up of buckwheat, barley, wheat, spelt, oats, rice and rye, and date syrup and coconut for sweetness, this is a rich, crunchy morning feast.
