Ingredients

For the Chocolate Orange Granola

  • 150g/ 1 1/4 cups Oats
  • 2 Oranges (weighing approx 175g/ 6 oz each)
  • 3 tbsp Coconut oil
  • 2-3 tbsp Agave syrup (depending how sweet you like it)
  • 3 tbsp Cocoa powder (unsweetened)
  • 100g/ 2/3 cup Raisins
  • 2 tbsp Hazelnuts
  • 2 tbsp Pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tbsp Linseeds
  • 2 tbsp Chocolate chips (optional) Milk or dark work well

For the Chocolate Orange Breakfast Parfait

  • 1 Orange (per person)
  • 3 tbsp Chocolate Orange Granola
  • 3 tbsp Greek yoghurt (plain, unsweetened)

Instructions

For the Chocolate Orange Granola

  • Preheat the oven 140C/ 275F/ GM1 and line a baking sheet with baking parchment
  • Finely chop the hazelnuts and finely grate the zest from the oranges. Tip into a large mixing bowl along with the oats, seeds, and raisins
  • Over a bowl (to catch the juice) carefully remove the skin, seeds and pith from the oranges. Add the remaining orange flesh and juice to a food processor and blitz until completely broken down into a puree
  • Melt the coconut oil and agave syrup (either in a saucepan or in the microwave). Add the cocoa powder and mix until combined
  • Pour the chocolate liquid into the dry ingredients and stir through
  • Tip the pureed orange into the bowl and stir again
  • Spread the granola onto the baking sheet and cook for around 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes until dry. If the raisins look as if they will burn, lay a sheet of baking parchment over the granola after 30 minutes (do not tuck it it - air must be able to circulate to ensure the granola crisps up)
  • Once cool stir through the chocolate chips, if using and store in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks

For the Chocolate Orange Breakfast Yoghurt Parfait

  • Carefully peel the orange and slice into circles around 5mm thick
  • Heat a dry griddle pan on a high heat. Add the orange slices in a single layer. let cook until just beginning to char (1-2 minutes). Turn over and allow the reverse side to also brown
  • Remove from the pan and let cool slightly. Chop each slice into quarters
  • In a glass layer 1 tbsp granola with 1 tbsp yogurt. Top with 1/3 of the charred orange and repeat these layers two more times
  • Eat immediately
