Warm Cherries with Peanut Butter Chocolate Granola

Cherry season is here and I’m making the most of it by eating thrm by the handhul. I was lucky enough to visit a cherry farm the other week and brought the biggest tray of juicy cherries back.

So far I’ve made a cherry and almond cake (recipe will be posted on my Instagram feed soon), I’ve been adding them to my breakfast oats and this – warm and gooey sweet cherries topped with quick homemade peanut butter chocolate granola. 
And we all know the cherry chocolate combination is the best don’t we 😉.

The granola is super simple to make and can be whipped up in 15 minutes. Just a matter of mixing then toasting in the oven. 
When the granola is toasted and the cherries have warmed through and broken down a bit you can spoon the cherries into pots or small bowls, top with granola and creamy cold coconut yogurt. It’s absolutely delicious. I would eat this for breakfast or dessert – absolutely delicious for both!


 The granola makes enough for quite a few servings so just let it go completely cool then store in a mason jar for later use. 

If you have any leftover cherries – keep them in the fridge to add to your oats or on toast with peanut butter.

I hope you enjoy, love Niki xx

I'd love to know if you made this recipe.
