Roasted Vanilla Strawberries topped with Almond Granola, Raspberries and Pomegranate

Breakfast is by far the best meal of the day, especially now summer is here and the supermarket shelves are lined with rows of fresh berries! These roasted strawberries are delicious, bathed in vanilla seeds and fresh orange juice and are really easy to make and the granola can be made a few days in advance and stored in a jam jar - breakfast for the entire week sorted!


Large handful of juicy strawberries
1tsp vanilla paste or the seeds from a vanilla pod (not extract)
1tsp honey
Juice of half an orange

50g rolled oats
25g whole almonds
1/4tsp ground cinnamon
25g granola (any type you fancy, I used Rude Health Spiced Apple)
2tbsp almond milk
1tsp almond butter

To serve:

Fresh raspberries
Whole almonds
Pomegranate seeds
Zest of 1/2 an orange


Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C.

Wash the strawberries and remove their stalks.

Chop in half and mix in a bowl with the honey, vanilla and orange juice.

When thoroughly coated, tip onto a non-stick baking tray and arrange the strawberries seed-side up.

In a separate bowl, mix the oats with the granola and cinnamon. Finely chop the whole almonds and add to the bowl. Mix in the almond milk and butter until it starts to come together. Tip the mixture out onto a lined baking tray and break up a bit. 

Put both the strawberries and granola into the oven for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes the strawberries should be soft and caramelised and the granola golden brown and crispy. 

Serve in small bowls layering the granola and roasted strawberries with cold yoghurt. I used lemon curd yoghurt which is delicious. Top with fresh raspberries, a few more whole almonds, some pomegranate seeds and a sprinkling of orange zest.

Pour over a little extra almond milk if you wish.
