It feels like an omelette kind of night

There’s something I want to change about this recipe. I’m not quite sure what it is, but the result of my yesterday morning stirring and baking didn’t feel quite as spectacular as it should. I mean, we’re combining cacao and granola, two inherently great things. So, yes, it should be stellar. And while scrumptious, I do want to tinker with the recipe until it reaches that next level.

So for now, there’s just a photograph. A photograph of my bowl of cacao granola, which I’ve enjoyed for two days in a row scooped over yoghurt and milk. Today I also sliced some banana and juiced one orange, which I served in a darling little cup my mother found along her travels in this world. Was it from an op shop, mum? All signs point to yes. It’s green, with floral detail and is the perfect size for an orange hit.

What did you have for breakfast today?

Let’s talk dinner. Tonight I’m flying solo so no doubt my evening will revolve around a greedy beetroot omelette, followed by a giant mug of tea or hot cocoa, sipped as I devour my latest book club read, The Witness Wore Read. While a non-fiction piece, this feels entirely too foreign to be true. It reads like a long Marie Claire article and I’m really enjoying it. I intend to read while sprawled across our new couch, taking up as much space as possible.

Tomorrow I might tell Ben we’re out of cacao granola and eat the small amount remaining for breakfast, feeling only a little bit guilty.

    how divine! you can never have enough granola recipes?! I love adding the zest of 1-2 oranges to give it that zing and next level (haha) I have been enjoying fried eggs lately for brekky with some haloumi or cucumber – that kinda thing. Hope you’re having a lovely wednesday xx

    Your granola looks stunning! I made a recipe a few months ago that included cacao, coconut flakes, cacao nibs and coconut oil. I like your use of almonds! So tasty! I am stewing and roasting and freezing and jamming all the late summer fruit at the moment…there is so much and so little time!x

      Good on you!! I have plums in my freezer from Summer, I am so thankful for them but really should crack them out sooner rather than later. It’ll be our time for stone fruits again before we know it! I was thinking of adding coconut flakes to the granola, must try that x

    It certainly looks great Heidi, I hope you manage to tweak it to your satisfaction :)
    An omlette sounds great, but tonight is Clean-out-the-leftovers Night, so it will be a fight to see who gets the roast lamb, satay chicken, GF parmies etc. Waste not, want not! X

    My breakfasts have been decidedly lacking recently; mostly revolving around various croissants or Italian paninis with questionable coffee. I’m longing for a bowl of my usual granola with seeds, creamy West Aussie milk and some floral honey! As for omelettes? YES. I love the idea of a beetroot one too… such gorgeous brightness makes for happy eyes and a satisfied belly xox
