Take a big breath in, hold it, relax, and breathe out. You’ve made it halfway through the working week. Well done you. To give you that extra little energy you need to get you through the last few days before Friday wind-down drinks and that long lazy weekend you’ve been wishing for since 9am Monday, here’s a brekkie recipe that will have you bouncing out the door with a grin from ear to ear.

½ cup shredded coconut, unsweetened

3 tbsp sesame seeds

½ tsp cinnamon

Sea salt

Preheat oven to 160C.

In a bowl, combine the honey, oil, and coffee. Mix well to combine.

In a separate bowl combine the oats, walnuts, coconut, sesame seeds, cinnamon, and a pinch salt. Pour over the honey and coffee mixture. Mix well.

Spread evenly over a baking tray that has been lined with baking paper and pop into the oven to bake for 10 minutes. Stir and bake for a further 5-10 minutes, until golden and crisp. Allow to cool and stir through chopped figs.

To serve divide the yoghurt between four serving bowls. Top with some orange and avocado and then scatter over the crunchy coffee granola. Finish with a final drizzle of honey.

  1. This looks amazing! A nice, different take on granola! I would have never thought of avocado with it! But I’ll give it a go! 🙂

  2. Looks absolutely delicious but I’m not sure about the avocado… Might have to try it before I diss it 🙂
