There used to be a show on Aussie tv called The Cook and The Chef. Maggie Beer was the cook and Simon Bryant, the chef. On one episode he did his mocha granola and it’s to die for.

Here’s the original recipe on the ABC site

Here’s what I do…

Dry ingredients in a bowl
5 cups of oats
1/4 cup of dark cocoa

Add the wet(ish) ingredients
8 shots of espresso
2 tbls of grated palm sugar
The seeds from 2 vanilla beans
1/3 cup of vegetable oil
1 cup of orange juice
2 tbls honey

Mix it all together so it’s all a bit moist.

Spread out on a tray and add almonds and some coconut on top. Into a low oven (80 degrees) for 2 hours. Turn off the oven and let the tray cool completely in the oven before putting in a container lined with baking paper.

It’s supposed to make up to 10 breakfasts but it lasts me longer. It’s delish with soy milk.
