Sugar Free Breakfast Bowl Topper

Sugar Free and Grain Free Breakfast Bowl Topper

So excited to share this sugar free breakfast bowl topper with you today. Ditching sugar and removing grains and dairy from my diet helped my gut to heal and put my autoimmune condition in remission. It’s over 4 years now guys without painful joints and rampant inflammation, can you believe it?

The funny things is after ditching the sugar, my palate changed. Erythritol, dried fruit, swerve, xylitol, rice malt syrup, coconut sugar/ nectar, honey, all of these alternative sweeteners are still sugar. Yes they are healthier than the refined stuff, but they’re still sugar after all, so go easy on them. A touch is all you need. Your palate will change. Put two cups of dates in your granola and you’ll need fillings soon enough, trust me!

Now I crave fats. Loads of them. Don’t be scared of fats guys. Eating fats, will not make you fat. A sedentary lifestyle and lots of sugar might though!

So here you have it, my grain and sugar free breakfast bowl topper. It’s also Paleo, low carb and Whole30 friendly. It’s also a Keto granola too if you replace the honey for swerve or erythritol.

Overview
Serves:
1 jar (0.5l)
Difficulty: Easy
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Ingredients
  • 70 g blanched hazelnuts
  • 35 g flaked almonds
  • 45 g mix of sunflower, chia and flax seeds (1/4 cup)
  • 25 g coconut chips (1/3 cup) (I like Coconut Merchant)
  • 40 g pumpkin seeds (1/4 cup)
Chocolate drops
  • 70 g cacao butter
  • 15 g raw cacao powder
  • 1 tsp almond butter
  • 1 tsp honey maple syrup or low carb sweetener of choice
  • Pinch of salt (only if not in the almond butter)
Breakfast Bowls (Makes 2)
  • 50 g blackberries
  • 40 g blueberries
  • 300 g coconut yoghurt (or Greek if you prefer)
Method
  • Preheat the oven to 170C (fan assisted.)
  • Place the hazelnuts on a baking tray and roast in the oven for 3 minutes.
  • Add the pumpkin seeds, flax, chia, sunflower seeds and almond flakes. Roast for a further 4 minutes.
  • Add the coconut chips and cook for a further 3 minutes. (The tray should be in the oven for about 10 minutes in total until golden.) Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
Refined Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Drops
  • Fill a saucepan with 1 cup of boiling water. Add the cacao butter to a large glass bowl and place into the pan. On a low heat, stir the cacao butter until fully melted. (Don't let the water bubble over into the cacao butter.) Turn off the heat.
  • Stir the cacao powder into the cacao butter until combined. Add the almond butter and honey to taste plus optional tiny pinch of salt. Check it’s to your desired sweetness or adjust accordingly. Remove the chocolate bowl from the pan of water.
  • Pour the chocolate into a silicone ice cube tray that makes tiny ice cubes. Alternatively, line a baking tray with grease proof paper and pour on the chocolate.
  • Place in the fridge for about 15 minutes to set. Remove the chocolate drops from the mini ice cube mould, or if using the other method, chop into small chunks with a knife.
Breakfast bowls
  • Blitz the berries together in a high speed blender.
  • Layer the berries and coconut yoghurt in glasses or small bowls.
  • Once cooled, mix the grain free granola base with the sugar free dark chocolate drops. Add 3 -4 tablespoons ontop of your berry coconut yoghurt pots.
  • Store the rest of the Paleo and Keto friendly granola in a sealed jar and keep in the cupboard for up to 2 weeks.
