An overnight oats recipe in collaboration with Nutri-Brex 5 Ways Gluten Free Granola.
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. My absolute favourite, number one go-to breakfast is a serving of granola on some plain, natural yoghurt, with plenty of fresh fruit. It’s quick, easy and nutritious, especially if it’s a lower sugar, gluten-free granola like one from the Nutri-Brex range.
Did you know that today (Monday 25th September 2017) is Better Breakfast Day? What better reason to celebrate than to jazz up your breakfast with this simple coconut and mango breakfast parfait (which is just a posh way of saying overnight oats, by the way!).
Inspired by the flavours of the Caribbean, this breakfast parfait is made with coconut yoghurt with some Hazelnut, Coconut & Quinoa gluten-free granola by Nutri-Brex stirred into it. I’ve layered the parfait with some more granola for extra texture, and some fresh mango puree which gives it a delicious, naturally sweet flavour. I’ve topped mine with some coconut shavings for extra flavour and texture, but you could always just finish off with more fresh fruit and a sprinkling of granola.
NUTRI-BREX GLUTEN-FREE GRANOLA
Nutri-Brex is an award-winning gluten-free brand who have recently expanded their range to include 5 Ways Granola. Their hazelnut, coconut and quinoa variety, which I’ve used in my recipe, features hazelnut pieces, flaked quinoa and toasted coconut as well as fine-cut oats, a perfect pairing for a coconut and mango breakfast parfait.
Nutri-Brex granola can be used in a minimum of five different ways:
- GRANOLA: serve Nutri-Brex with milk or yoghurt for a traditional crunchy granola breakfast
- PORRIDGE: simply add milk and microwave or cook on the hob for a delicious hot breakfast on these cold Autumn mornings
- TOPPING: sprinkle over your favourite fruit, or even over some peanut butter and gluten-free toast
- BIRCHER: mix with yoghurt, grated apple, a splash of apple juice and some milk and leave overnight for a delicious breakfast in the morning
- SMOOTHIE: blend with your favourite fruit, ice and a dollop of natural yoghurt for a fast and filling start to the day
