This recipe kicks butt. Nice and moist, slightly sweet thanks to the addition of desiccated coconut and inulin (chicory root fibre) and nuttier than a squirrel’s turd, it’s an adaptation of a recipe from my friends at the Natural Ketosis Co. Mix 30g with 50g of strawberries and/or blueberries and two tablespoons of full fat Greek yoghurt and it’s the perfect start to the day.
I’m no expert (see my disclaimer below) but by my calculations this breakfast packs around 12g of carbs (including the berries and yoghurt). That compares to the 40g to 60g of carbs a bowl of shop-bought granola will contain. What’s more, the Nutjob keeps me full until lunch and is packed with a host of goodies (copper, manganese, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, selenium, fibre, etc) thanks to all those lovely seeds and nuts.
Here’s how I make it:
In case you missed any of that, for a week’s supply, blend together:
30g sesame seeds
30g sunflower seeds
30g pumpkin seeds
15g desiccated coconut
30g brown linseeds
Two or three teaspoons (8 to 12g) of inulin
A smidgen (2g) of coconut oil
