By on January 12, 2016

  • smoothie bowl11 frozen banana, roughly chopped into large chunks
  • 1/2 cup Chris’ Greek style natural yoghurt
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tsp honey
  • 1-2 tbsp milk of your choice (optional)
  • 1 tspn maca powder (optional)
Peanut butter granola:
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 3 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • 4 tbsp shredded coconut
  • 5 tbsp crunchy peanut butter (refer to note)
  • 2 tsp honey
Optional toppings
  • Sliced banana
  • Melted smooth peanut butter (we like using coconut peanut butter)
To make granola:
  • Preheat the oven to 150 degrees (fan forced)/160 degrees (conventional)
  • Mix the first 5 dry ingredients together in a medium sized bowl.
  • Melt the peanut butter in the microwave till it’s soft and can be stirred with a spoon.
  • Pour the peanut butter and honey over the dry ingredients and mix till all the dry ingredients are well coated.
  • Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper and spread the granola mix evenly over it.
  • Place the tray in the oven and every 5 minutes stir the mixture so it evenly browns – this usually needs to be done for 15 to 20 minutes. 
  • When ready, remove the tray from the oven and allow the granola to cool down before storing in an airtight container.
To make smoothie:
  • Place the first four smoothie ingredients in a blender and blend till smooth. If it’s too thick, add the milk to thin out the smoothie to the desired consistency.
  • Pour the smoothie into a shallow bowl. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of peanut butter granola over the top of the smoothie and add the optional toppings if you want.
  • Note: Try to use peanut butter that is made up of 100% peanuts because it tastes better and doesn’t have to unnecessary sugar added.
