December days can be dismal affairs weather-wise as sometimes it never seems to get properly light before it goes dark again. Getting motivated in the morning can become a real problem. Still, our wonderfully creative Rollagranola online community has been busy coming up with ideas that will shine a light in the darkness and give us all a breakfast buzz.
Over on our Instagram page, there are some great recipes, including a fully loaded porridge bowl topped with Rollagranola and an overnight oats bowl that incorporates our Pecan Maple Twist granola. Take a peek.
There is plenty of inspiration for festive treats as well. If you are looking for something a little different for a Christmas buffet, there is even a recipe for creating Chocolate Salami with one of our granolas to give it an extra crunch.
Chocolate is, of course, synonymous with Christmas and our Absolutely Chocolate granola makes a great stocking filler that has the added benefit of being good for you. Packed full of nuts, seeds and 100% cocoa, it is bound to put a smile on the recipient’s face.
Nuts are the perfect winter fuel for our bodies as they provide us with much-needed energy and are great tasting snack for relaxing in front of the telly. Pecans, macadamias, walnuts and cashews are all popular at this time of year, and, of course, you can always add your own dried fruit to create a delicious festive treat.
There are tastes and smells that help to make Christmas such a magical time, with cinnamon and cranberries as two perennial favourites. Our Awesome Almond granola is just the ticket for a seasonal breakfast as it contains cranberries, cashews and cinnamon. Still, it can become even more festive by sprinkling crumbled gingerbread over the top or adding some orange zest to it.
Looking after ourselves has never been more important as we enter another COVID Christmas season. However you celebrate, everyone at Rollagranola sends you warm seasonal greetings.
