This book has taken off like no other. The best selling cookbook of all time and all from a man who has never trained as a chef. Joe Wicks became an Instagram sensation with high intensity workouts followed up with recipes to eat well and stay healthy.
I began with a breakfast recipe of Joe’s Granola. On the face of it a very simple recipe with ingredients that are easy to come by in any supermarket. I began by preheating the oven and throwing a mixture of nuts (I used chopped peanuts, almonds and pistachios) a grated apple, some oats, honey and cinnamon before mixing together.
The mixture then gets spread onto a tray in a single layer and baked until crispy. I removed the tray 2-3 times just to toss the granola over to ensure all of it crisped up evenly.
After 20 minutes the granola was ready. It’s worth taking into consideration that if you have a fan oven the cooking time may be a little shorter. I allowed the granola to cool for 30 minutes before stirring in some raisins.
The granola is easily stored in an airtight container for up to two days.
I tried this with zero fat natural yoghurt and a drizzle of agave nectar. This was delicious, a great breakfast with a lot more flavour than you would expect from low-sugar granola. For something so easy that took less than 5 minutes to prepare outside of oven cooking and cooling time this is definitely something that I’d make again. Cheers Joe!
