Blogging Marathon# 55: Week 3/ Day 2

Theme: Kid’s Delight — Healthy Breakfasts

Dish: Chocolate Granola

Today’s kid friendly breakfast happens to be my favorite too. I couldn’t stop myself munching on this delicious and addictive granola. Recipe for this chocolate granola is from Bobby Flay’s ‘Brunch with Bobby‘ cooking show. I had the recipe bookmarked for a very very long time and finally made it for the kids.

Original recipe is with chocolate and coconut, but I skipped adding the coconut chips and coconut extract to the granola because I didn’t have neither at home. But even without them, granola tasted amazing.

It can be served with warm or cold milk or even sprinkled on yogurt. My kids loved eating it as is. It can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

Sending this over to Healthy Breakfasts for Kids event hosted by lovely LavinaKid’s Delight is the brain child of our lovely organizer Valli.

  1. I guess you might want to check your font Pavani. The measure for cocoa powder is not showing up properly. But the granola looks delicious. I have tried one version from Passionate about baking long back.
