Granola using Healtheries Black Chia Seeds – rather impressed.

Look! Golden granola.

Look! Golden Granola.

I feel rather old saying this, I love a bowl of granola with some fancy yoghurt for breakfast at the weekend. So does Mr Muffin, I never thought I would say that. We generally have a seedy one and on looking at the ingredients I noticed it too contained black chia seeds.

This got me thinking on using my Healtheries Black Chia Seeds and I investigated various recipes and created a granola suitable for us. I didn’t even have to buy anything to add to it, that made me happy.

It was my first attempt at granola and next time I will make an effort to have bigger clumps by stirring it a little less. I may add a little dried fruit while the granola cools, dried cherries would be good.

The Healtheries Black Chia Seeds add a nice crunch and texture. These little seeds are certainly finding their way onto my shopping list. Healtheries sent me the Chia as I am one of their Super Samplers.
