Breakfast Layer Crunch

It is said that we eat with our eyes.  I think that is true and always take a few moments to present our food to really appeal to the eyes as well as the taste buds.

This breakfast is a classic example of that.  It’s just granola, natural yoghurt and a cherry compote.  Now you could just dollop each into a bowl and get going, but trust me, take just a moment to layer up the ingredients in a glass or small kilner jar and you make breakfast special.

Granola suffers from one of those healthy halos, in that people think that makes it a free food that be can be consumed without thought. The problem is that granola is often a sugar bomb, filled with fruits, honey, syrups etc and so should be consumed in moderation.

This healthy breakfast layer crunch allows you to enjoy granola but as part of a balanced meal.

Serves 2
  • 50 gms Sugar Free Granola
  • 100 gms natural yoghurt
  • 40 gms Frozen Dark Cherries
  • 1 tsp Honey


First make up the cherry compote. Allow the cherries to defrost and then add to a shallow pan with a tsp honey. Cook over a medium heat for about 10 mins until the cherries begin to break down. Stir frequently to avoid burning or sticking to the pan.

Then its so easy to make up, simply layer up the compote, yoghurt and granola and you are good to go.

  1. So easy to make and super convenient to have to hand when time is short. You can even do the layering the night before and add a granola topping just before you want to eat. Love the cherry contrasting with the yoghurt. Delish!
