It’s NATIONAL BREAKFAST WEEK! Yes, that means expect even more perfectly positioned pictures of avocado toast and smoothies than usual! The purpose of the campaign is to raise awareness of the importance of a good breakfast to kickstart your day. Despite it being considered the most important meal of the day, around 2/3rds of Brit’s admit they skip breakfast! So to celebrate the campaign, we’ve compiled a delicious list of some of the best coconut-based brekkies that will get you springing out of bed and dancing into work!
Combat these cold, wintery mornings with a warm, toasty bowl of energy packed porridge! Not only will these powerful little oats carry you through to lunch, they’re also a fantastic source of fibre, potassium and vitamins. For a sweet caramel twist add a sprinkle of coconut sugar or a drizzle of coconut syrup, or why not add a splash of colour to your bowl with your favourite fruits!

Who doesn’t love granola? Those sweet, crunchy little clusters. Those juicy raisins and protein-rich nuts. And the coconut, oh, the fresh, crisp coconut!

So why not make make your own? It’s so deliciously easy to make, plus it wont hurt your already sensitive purse and best of all, it will leave your home smelling like heaven! The flavouring possibilities are endless; from savoury to sweet, and fruity to spiced, so get creative and feel empowered! It’s time to take charge of your granola destiny!
