Hey, people! Aldy here. Today I want to share with you this powerhouse dessert, full of flavor and also with a handful of nutrition. ‘Berries and Coconut Seeded Crumble Granola’ it’s a combination between a crumble dessert and the granola…its taste deliciously great, and needless to say it has a gooood dose of antioxidants, nutrients, minerals and fibre. Yes, I’m talking superfood dessert!
This recipe is pretty easy to put together and most of the ingredients (you probably have them at home) are easy to find as well. In this recipe, I’m using rice syrup but you can always substitute for maple syrup or agave. Or for a non-vegan version you can use honey. You can use fresh berries or frozen berries (I’m using frozen berries because we’re in autumn season here), whether you use fresh or frozen berries, just remember not to overcook the berries, when preparing the filling. It takes two to three minutes max to cook them; otherwise, they get to soft and they may lose flavor.
You can have this berries crumble granola any time of the day. For breakfast, after lunch, after dinner, as a snack…just whenever you like! We love having this after dinner, kind of our dessert of the day with a couple of spoons of natural yogurt or mascarpone cheese…it's so good (we can’t get enough of this). But if you want a more indulgent version to serve it with your favorite ice cream.
As always love hearing from you and if you have any questions just let me know!
