Who wouldn't want a sundae for breakfast ?

Especially a salty, caramel, chocolate granola & coconut yogurt sundae.... that's what I was going to call it, but I thought it was a bit long !

This is SO easy to make and would be the perfect breakfast to serve up to guests on a sunday morning if they didn't fancy a fry up !

All you'll need is:

A selection of nuts - I used almonds, pecans, cashews & hazelnuts and I had a seed mix which included sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds.
A handful of oats (I used gluten free)
1 tsp Cacao powder
1 tbsp pure maple syrup
1tsp salt (I use pink himalayan)
COYO Coconut Yogurt - any flavour but I used Vanilla
Optional: Coconut flakes & cacao nibs (You could add crushed pecans on the top)

Pop everything in to a bowl and mix throughly.

Spread it nice and evenly on a baking tray and pop in the over on about 150o C for 10 minutes.  
Then let it completely cool.

Then in a nice dessert glass, layer up the granola with the COYO yogurt - it might be easier to use a piping bag or you can just dollop it on with a spoon ! 

There you have it - a yummy, crunchy, creamy breakfast sundae ! Super good for you and SO yummy! 

Don't you want to just tuck in ?

Salted Caramel Kale Chips

So you've seen cheesy kale chips.....but what about salted caramel ?  Ohhh yes please !

All you need is some kale, some pure maple syrup and some pink Himalayan salt. All super good for you !

So start by washing your kale and dry with kitchen roll. 

Then pour over a liberal amount of maple syrup and sprinkle on your salt. This is all personal taste but as a rule of thumb for a big handful I used a tablespoon of maple syrup and a teaspoon of salt. 

Using your nice clean washed hands 'massage' the maple syrup and salt in to the kale leaves, being sure to cover them all. 

Then spread them out evenly on a baking tray and pop them in the oven on 150 deg c for about 10 minutes until crispy. 

Let them cool for about 5 minutes then devour. I even topped my with some cacao nibs for a little chocolatey touch and extra crunch. 

If you have been wanting to get involved in the kale craze - these are a great way to start ! Super sweet and delicious !

Do let me know if you make some and be sure to tag me on IG if you do @spotted_rose,
