Coconut Chia Pudding with a No Nut Chickpea Granola

This is one of my absolute favorite breakfasts as it is so delicious, yet so simple to make. The coconut chia pudding will keep you full during the morning while the protein boosted granola crumble will be the perfect topping to enjoy with some berries, mint leaves, nut butter or whatever you like!

I usually prepare the chia pudding the night before so that I can wake up to a grab and go meal, which also allows me to enjoy a little extra sleep in the busy work mornings. This recipe lasts me for three breakfasts.

The chickpeas that I use for this granola are pre roasted and can be bought at any oriental food shop. Even though you might be sceptic about eating chickpeas for breakfast, I can promise that you will be surprised how addictive these crunchy little protein packs are. They are usually served as a snack that you eat while having a glass of wine, but here they are in your soon to be favorite granola (hehe). Sweetened with dates instead of honey makes the flavor unique, with a hint of caramel.
