Hello granola lovers!
Are you stuck in a breakfast rut? – You want to branch out and try something new, but you just love granola too much!
Well I have the perfect recipe for you- a fruity apple and pear compote mixed with granola, topped with raspberries and more granola! The base layer is like a thick apple sauce with interesting textures and bursts of flavour from the granola. This pairs very well with the sharper raspberries and crunchy granola topping.
This fruity granola breakfast pot is a really wholesome breakfast to set you up for the day. Apple and pears contain lots of fibre to help keep you feeling full and to regulate your digestive system. But most of the fibre and vitamins are in the skin, so make sure you try and grate the skin as well as the flesh when you make the base layer. The base layer is made and left over night, which means minimal prep time in the morning- perfect for if you don’t have much time for breakfast.
I used ‘Tropical Twist’ Paleo Granola from Planet Organic. It doesn’t contain any oats like a traditional granola. It’s made with nuts, seeds, coconut, dates and pineapple! And it tastes insanely good: good enough that you might have to snack on some while you’re preparing this breakfast pot!! Then you tell yourself to stop, but go back for more! And a bit more….Don’t get me wrong- I love traditional oaty granola, but sometimes it’s nice to have a change.
If you use a different granola I’d suggest you pick one with some dried fruit (like dates or raisins) and coconut, because that tasted really nice and made it more exciting to eat. Please leave a comment below with which one you try so you can help other people who make the recipe.

Fruity Granola Breakfast Pot Recipe
- ½ cup granola (I used Planet Organic Paleo Granola Tropical).
Plus more for sprinkling.
- 1 Braeburn apple
- 1 ripe pear
- ½ cup raspberries
- 3 tsp lime juice
- Wash and then grate the apple and pear.
- Transfer the grated fruit and any juice into a glass. Add the granola and lime juice, then stir well.
- Place the mixture in the fridge and leave it overnight.
- In the morning top the fruit mixture with raspberries. I used frozen raspberries but you can use fresh.
- Add a sprinkle of granola and it’s ready to eat.
Did you know….
You could substitute the pear for more apple! Or apple for more pear! But I like the mix of soft sweet pear and the slightly sharper grated apple.
Disclaimer: I was sent a box of granola from Planet Organic to try, but I really love it and the fact that it’s refined sugar free. I wouldn’t use it in my recipes unless I was happy with the product. If you want to see how else I’ve used it check out my instagram.
