I was inspired to create this recipe after making the chocolate and lime mud cake from one of my favourite baking books, Crumb by Ruby Tandoh (Chatto & Windus Ltd, 2014). I’d always recommend using good-quality dark chocolate (between 70–80 per cent cocoa solids).

For a lighter granola, leave out the extra dark chocolate; but I’m not sure Ruby would approve of this, so I like to keep it in!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
60g dark chocolate, finely chopped, (at least 70% cocoa solids)
1 lime, zested

Dry ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
250g oats
60g dry ingredients, roughly chopped
1 heaped tablespoons cocoa powder
pinch salt

Wet ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
60ml coconut oil
60ml maple syrup
1 lime, juiced

Lime yoghurt (serves 2)

Quantity Ingredient
200ml natural yoghurt
1 lime, juiced and zested

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Combine all the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
  3. Melt the coconut oil gently in a pan over a medium heat. Stir in the maple syrup and lime juice until combined.
  4. Pour the oil and syrup mixture into the dry ingredients and mix together.
  5. Spoon the mixture onto a baking tray lined with baking parchment, spreading it into a thin, even layer. (Use 2 trays if needed.)
  6. Bake on the middle shelf in the oven for15 minutes. Remove from the oven, scatter the dark chocolate over the granola and return to the oven to cook for a further 10–15 minutes until the chocolate has melted.
  7. Remove from the oven and ensure the oats are evenly coated with the melted chocolate by stirring with a wooden spoon.
  8. Grate the lime zest straight on top of the granola and stir into the mix. Leave to cool.
  9. Make your yoghurt by blending the lime yoghurt with the lime zest and juice. Serve in bowls, topped with the granola.
