I feel the same, it’s always a daily dilemma of mine. Either my mind goes blank and I cannot think of anything I fancy or I am the total opposite and have to decide between the numerous dishes running through my mind.
So, you get into work and if like me, you don’t have enough time in the mornings to have breakfast at home, hunger suddenly strikes when it is time for your first meeting. Food options are limited so we either listen to the tones of our rumbling bellies during the meeting or quickly grab the nearest edible item in our reach.
Well, I think I may have one scrumptious breakfast that will hopefully stop this from happening… Peanut Butter and Maple Syrup Granola! Do not fear.. if you don’t like either of those ingredients you can change them as you please.
This recipe is so easy to whip up on a Sunday evening ready for the breakfasts ahead. Change your flavouring to keep your taste buds interested and craving for more the next day.
Below is the recipe for Peanut Butter and Maple Syrup, but you can change these to anything you fancy – dried fruit of any sort (strawberries, banana, goji berries), dark chocolate chips, chocolate spreads, just simply keep the measurements the same. Any doubts or questions get in touch!
Peanut Butter and Maple Syrup Granola
Total Cooking Time: 25 minutes

Pinch of Salt
In a large saucepan, melt the peanut butter and maple syrup.
Once melted stir in the salt and cinnamon.
Remove from the heat and mix in your rolled oats.
Pour out into a roasting tin, aim for an even layer to allow it to cook equally.

Allow to cool, gently break up the slab until you have granola.
